In July 2020, Benjamin Keough sadly passed away from suicide and his sister hasn’t stopped paying tribute to him ever since. Her latest post was about celebrating her first Christmas Day without him there.


On July 12, 2020, Benjamin Keough passed away at the age of 27 by suicide. Throughout the year, his older sister, Riley Keough, 31, has been paying tribute to him and mourning his sudden death on Instagram.

She’s posted several new photos of her and her brother in the posts she’s shared. Some rare pictures that her followers have seen included childhood images of herself and Benjamin.

With Christmas Day around the corner, Riley showed how much she still missed her brother by dedicating a post to him. The post included a photo of the siblings posing together for a selfie, confessing:

“Its [sic] going to be my first Christmas without my best friend and baby brother.”


The “Magic Mike” actress admitted how painful the reality was for her. She explained how she was thinking of all those who’d lost their loved ones and who were going to have their first holidays without them.


Riley noted how the festive season would be filled with grief for them. She also shared how she was thinking about all the people who couldn’t be here physically and sent them love wherever they were.


In her Instagram Story, the Golden Globe Award nominee also shared the festive spirit by sharing a special photo. In the image, the actress appeared to be driving at night through a Christmas light extravaganza.

The display was taken at the Holiday Road drive-thru experience in Calabasas, California. Christmas trees shone brightly alongside some normal trees that were decorated with fairy lights.


Riley and Benjamin are singer Lisa Marie Presley’s children with artist Danny Keough. When her son’s death happened, Lisa Marie’s representative revealed that she was “completely heartbroken.”

Benjamin’s grandmother, Priscilla Presley, later took to Facebook to mourn the death of her grandson.

The parent was trying to stay strong for her youngest twin children and Riley. The representative shared how much the musician had adored her son and described him as the love of her life.


Elvis Presley's grandson was found dead earlier in the year in Calabasas, California. His autopsy ruled the cause of his death as a shotgun wound and the manner of death was listed as suicide.

Benjamin’s grandmother, Priscilla Presley, later took to Facebook to mourn the death of her grandson. She confessed that she was still trying to put herself together and prayed each day would be better.
