Lisa Marie Presley’s son and Elvis Presley’s grandson Benjamin Keough has died at the age of 27.

TMZ reported that Benjamin took his own life on Sunday.

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

Like his superstar grandfather, Benjamin was a musician and acted in a short film called Rod and Barry but kept a very low profile.

Benjamin was known for his resemblance to Elvis.

“He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage,” Lisa Marie told CMT in 2012.

“Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.”
