Lisa Marie Presley Biography
Lisa Marie Presley was an American singer and composer. She was born on February 1, 1968, and passed away on January 12, 2023. She was the only child of musician, actor, and actress Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley, and she was also the only heir to her father’s estate. She was known as Lisa Marie Presley. A career in the music industry was built by Presley, and he released three albums throughout the course of his career: To Whom It May Concern in 2003, Now What in 2005, and Storm & Grace in 2012. The Recording Industry Association of America awarded the album a Gold certification after it was played enough times. Additionally, Presley issued singles that were not part of an album. These singles included duets with her father that used music that her father had already released before he passed away.
Presley had marriages to the musicians Danny Keough, Michael Jackson, Nicolas Cage, and Michael Lockwood, all of whom were successful musicians in their own right.
Presley was born in Memphis, Tennessee, on February 1, 1968, to Elvis and Priscilla Presley, nine months to the day after her parents got married. After her parents got a divorce, she lived with her mother in Los Angeles, California, and often visited her father at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.
When Presley was four years old, her parents split up. When her father died in August 1977, Presley and her grandfather, Vernon Presley, and great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Hood Presley, all got a share of his estate. Vernon died in 1979, and Minnie Mae died in 1980. After that, she was the only heir and got Graceland. In 1993, when she turned 25, she got the estate, which was worth about $100 million at the time. In 2004, Presley sold 85% of what had belonged to her father.
In the late 1970s, about a year or two after her father died, she went to see Queen at The Forum in Inglewood, California. It was her first rock show. She gave Freddie Mercury a scarf that belonged to her father after the show and told him how much she liked theater.
Her mother started dating the actor Michael Edwards not long after her father died. Edwards is said to have done sexual things to Lisa Marie when she was between 12 and 15 years old. In an interview with Playboy in 2003, Presley said that Edwards would come into her room drunk and treat her badly.
In 1997, Presley and her father made a video of them singing “Don’t Cry Daddy” together. This video was shown at a tribute concert for Elvis Presley on August 16, 1997, which was 20 years after he died. The original voice of Elvis is in the video, and new instruments and Lisa Marie’s voice were added to it.
On April 8, 2003, Presley released her debut album, To Whom It May Concern. It peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200 album chart and was certified Gold in June 2003 and to promote it, she did a concert tour in the UK. Presley collaborated with Billy on a co-written track titled “Savior”, which was included as the B-side. Lisa Marie Presley appeared in Michael Jackson’s “You are Not Alone” video in June 1995, directed by Wayne. In 1997, Presley made a video for “Don’t Cry Daddy” as a duet with her father.
After her parents split up, she moved to California to live with her mother. When her father died in 1977, she and her grandparents both got a share of his property. After her grandparents died, she got the whole fortune, which was worth about $100 million. In 2004, Lisa sold 85% of the property that belonged to her father.
Lisa Marie Presley had a net worth of $295 million when she got her inheritance in 1994, but her bad spending habits made her lose it all. Between 2005 and 2015, Lisa lost everything she owned. She also put $25 million into the future holding company for American Idol. Lisa Marie Presley’s net worth in 2023 is expected to be around $16 million.
