CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: With the unfortunate death of Lisa Marie Presley, a shocking detail about her past is resurfaced. It was said that on August 16, 1977, hours after saying good night to each other, the late singer tragically found her father’s lifeless body in the bathroom of his home in Memphis, Tennessee. She was only nine years old then.
RadarOnline has now reported that years after Elvis Presley’s death, his only daughter said: “I don’t like to talk about it. It was 4 a.m. Actually I should sleep. He found me.” She shared that with the cultural icon following her, she ran back to her room and kissed her goodnight. “That was the last time I saw him alive,” the ‘I’ll Figure It Out’ singer added.

The mother-of-four had reportedly spoken out about her guilt for not understanding her father’s deteriorating condition. Lisa said: “At the time I didn’t know what was going on. I wish I had. I had no idea what was really happening. I remember seeing his stomach for the first time and worrying to death about it. I would find him in these bad conditions.” She added, “Out of nowhere he just started falling and I had to run around and catch him. He was about two meters tall and quite heavy, and I’m holding him up. It was just starting to get all too commonplace.”
Lisa also died of a possible heart attack, just like her father. Her death was announced by her mother and Elvis’ ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, who said: “It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that our beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has passed away. She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thanks for the love and prayers. There will be no further comment at this time.”
Michael Lockwood, Lisa’s fourth husband and father of her twin daughters – Finley Aaron Love and Harper Vivienne Ann – also shared a statement mentioning the teenagers. He reportedly said: “We are all devastated by the sudden death of Lisa Marie Presley, the mother of my two beautiful twin daughters, Harper and Finley. Nothing prepares us for such an unexpected tragedy. It is incomprehensible.”
Lockwood added, “The most important thing for me right now is taking care of my daughters and making sure they always feel safe and loved. Both have incredible spirits and they will carry on our family legacy for the rest of their lives. Since birth, Harper and Finley have brought me deep joy and remain loyal to them. We ask for privacy at this incredibly difficult time.”
