Actress Riley Keough has experienced a lot of heartbreak in the past three years. Her brother, Benjamin, died by suicide on July 12, 2020 at the age of 27:
“I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart,” Riley wrote on Instagram after Ben passed away. “...I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”
Then, just a little over two years after she lost her brother, Riley Keough lost her mother, Lisa Marie Presley. She died on January 12, 2023 at the age of 54.
Lisa Marie left behind her three daughters: Riley, Harper, and Finley. She was laid to rest beside Ben in Graceland’s Meditation Garden.

This year (2023) marks three years since Ben passed away. He was remembered by his grandmother, Priscilla Presley, who said:
“Needless to say, this has been a very solemn day for me – the anniversary of the passing of my sweet grandson Ben. Words cannot express how much you are missed.”
Riley also paid tribute to Ben on social media. She shared a photo on her Instagram Story that shows a young Ben with Lisa Marie.
“Missing you both,” Riley wrote on the picture along with a red heart emoji.
