Lisa Marie Presley’s Death Ruled Natural due to Complications from Bariatric Surgery

Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, passed away in January at the age of 54. Recently, authorities have revealed that her cause of death was complications from bariatric surgery that she had undergone several years ago. The official ruling states that she died from natural causes due to the effects of a small bowel obstruction. This new information comes from an autopsy report released by the Los Angeles county medical examiner-coroner’s office.

According to the report, the complication that led to Lisa Marie Presley’s death is a common one associated with bariatric surgery, which is a weight loss procedure. The Mayo Clinic explains that this surgery is typically pursued when other weight loss methods have proven ineffective or when an individual has a serious medical condition. The report also mentioned that Presley had been experiencing stomach pain earlier on the day of her death.

Following her passing, Presley was laid to rest at a funeral held at Graceland on January 22. Graceland is the iconic home where she grew up with her father, Elvis Presley, and has since become a museum and popular tourist attraction.

Lisa Marie Presley is survived by her three daughters: Riley Keough, who is 34 years old and an actor, as well as 15-year-old twins, Harper and Finley Lockwood. Unfortunately, Lisa Marie had already lost her son, Benjamin Keough, in 2020.

After her death, there were initial indications that a legal battle would occur over Presley’s estate. However, her mother, Priscilla Presley, and Riley Keough, who is now the sole trustee, reached a settlement in May. In a separate development, Riley Keough recently received her first Emmy nomination for best actress in a limited series or TV movie for her role in “Daisy Jones & the Six.”

The news of Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death sheds light on the medical issues she faced and the impact they had on her. It also serves as a reminder of the significant legacy she and her father, Elvis Presley, have left behind in the music industry. Despite the legal disputes surrounding her estate, her loved ones have found a way to come to an agreement and honor her memory in the best way possible.
