Riley’s Tribute to Her Brother
On July 18, Riley shared an especially heartbreaking post concerning her grief and brother’s legacy. “Mornings are the hardest,” she admitted. “I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me.
You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world.”
“I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart,” she continued. “I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel God. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”
Benjamin passed away on July 12 in Calabasas from an apparent suicide. Additionally, authorities discovered that he suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“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 Presley’s manager, Roger Widynowski, told TMZ. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Benjamin was not in the public eye for most of his life, however, he was set to break into the music industry. In 2009 he signed an especially large record deal with Universal for $5 million. His music was said to be “nothing like” his grandfather, Elvis Presley’s music.
