The granddaughter of legendary rock ‘n roll star Elvis Presley is living her best life while vacationing this summer.
If you don’t know, Riley Keough is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley. That means that her grandfather was the one and only Elvis Presley. And despite her mom living a high-profile life — she was married to Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage — Keough was mostly kept out of the spotlight.
She did grow up to become an actress, however. Keough made her debut alongside Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart in the 2010 film, The Runaways. The very next year, she appeared in The Good Doctor and even received some accolades for her role as a patient in distress. More recently, fans may remember seeing Elvis Presley’s granddaughter in the 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road.
Nowadays, Riley Keough is 32 years old. She has nearly half a million followers on Instagram and she often takes to her official account to engage with her fans. If you are looking for the latest updates on Riley Keough’s life, you can always give her a follow.
On Sunday afternoon, the popular actress posted several pictures from her latest vacation. Some of those include shots of her hanging out with friends, swimming in a beautiful pond, and drinking tropical drinks. Viewers beware, however: one of Keough’s snaps is of one of her friends who has a serious cut on his pinky toe.
Nonetheless, Keough captioned her latest photo, “Adventures,” which seems to be a fitting title.
Granddaughter of Elvis Presley is in a Much Better Place
It’s crazy just how different your life can look in only one year. Take Riley Keough for example. Last summer, she received what was quite possibly the worst news one could ever hear — her beloved little brother Benjamin took his own life. He was just 27 years old at the time.
It’s no surprise that Elvis Presley’s granddaughter was filled with grief afterward. And she didn’t know what to do or how to cope with that grief. That led to her feeling “totally debilitated” and not being able to function for some time.
She told the New York Times that she could barely even talk, calling the event “outrageous.”
“It’s very complicated for our minds to put that somewhere because it’s so outrageous,” Keough explained. “If I’m going through a breakup, I know what to do with that and where to file it in my mind. But the suicide of your brother? Where do you put that? How does that integrate? It just doesn’t.”
Keough made a heartwrenching post on Instagram on the one-year anniversary of her brother’s death.
“Today has been a year without you baby brother. I miss you endlessly every day.”
