Nancy Sinatra reacted to the tragic passing of Lisa Marie Presley’s son, Benjamin Keough.

“She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley,” Lisa Marie’s manager, Roger Widynowski, told TMZ. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”

Benjamin passed away in Calabasas, California on Sunday (July 12). The outlet reported that he died due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an apparent suicide.

Nancy Sinatra’s Statement

Sinatra replied to a news story concerning Benjamin’s death. “Sweet, sweet princess, what a terrible tragedy,” she tweeted. “@LisaPresley I have known you since before your mama gave birth to you, never dreaming you would have pain like this in your life. I’m so very sorry. I’m here.”

Who is Benjamin Keough?

Lisa Marie married singer-songwriter, Danny Keough, on October 3, 1988. They had Benjamin and his sister, actress Riley Keough, together. Later on, Lisa Marie and Danny divorced on May 6, 1994.

Benjamin was not in the public eye aside from a few appearances here and there. However, he did sign a $5 million record deal with Universal in 2009. His music was said to be nothing like his grandfather, Elvis Presley’s music.

Lisa Marie previously spoke about his striking resemblance to her father. “He does [look so much like Elvis]! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage,” Lisa Marie told CMT . “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.”

Nancy Sinatra’s Reaction to Kelly Preston’s Death

Additionally, Sinatra also shared a statement concerning the passing of Kelly Preston. Preston died at just 57-years-old from breast cancer on Sunday (July 12), the same date that Benjamin passed.

“It’s funny how we can become so attached to someone we have never met,” Sinatra tweeted. “Kelly is one of those people. I know it’s not much to offer but I wish her godspeed and peace to John and their family.”
