MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: Benjamin Keough’s grave at Graceland is reportedly being moved to make room for his mother Lisa Marie Presley’s final resting place. The 54-year-old singer/songwriter and only child of the “King of Rock and Roll” Elvis Presley tragically died on Thursday, January 12, just hours after being rushed to the hospital for an alleged cardiac arrest.

Amidst these preparations, a source close to the family revealed that Keough’s grave is being moved to make room for the late ‘Lights Out’ hitmaker. “They are moving Benjamin’s grave to make room for Lisa in the backyard cemetery,” an insider told Page Six.
