In a surprising turn of events, Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, was discovered to have gone into a deadly addiction spiral in the months preceding her tragic death, shocking the entire world.
The renowned performer, who had battled opioid use for years, had relapsed and was taking the harmful substance.
Sources close to the family revealed that Lisa Marie was consumed by her obsession with her weight and had put herself on an extreme diet in a desperate bid to look her best for awards season. With the highly anticipated biopic about her father, starring Austin Butler, set to hit the big screen, the only daughter of Elvis was expected to be making the rounds to promote the film and bask in the spotlight once again.
But instead, the world was left to mourn the loss of a true icon, as the news of her tragic death sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry. The dark cloud of addiction had once again claimed another victim, leaving behind a legacy of heartbreak and tragedy. The world may never know the full extent of the struggles that Lisa Marie faced, but one thing is for certain, her passing has left a void that can never be filled.
An insider told TMZ that 2 months before the Golden Globes, where Lisa Marie looked weak and frail, Lisa Marie went under the knife for plastic surgery procedures. She then started taking weight loss medicine.
Lisa Marie lost 40 to 50 lbs. in the 6 week period leading up to the award show where she walked the red carper with Butler.
The insider revealed that Lisa Marie was not only taking the weight loss drug but had started taking opioids despite having been clean from them for years.
Law enforcement sources said that Lisa Marie had complained of abdominal pain on the morning before she died. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Lisa Marie’s cause of death has been deferred pending additional tests including toxicology.
Court documents revealed that from October 2015 until June 2016, Lisa Marie was “using a significant amount of drugs and staying in bed a lot.”
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Priscilla was in court last week asking to be named administrator of Lisa Marie’s estate. She said an amendment was signed that cut her out and made Lisa Marie’s daughter Riley the administrator but she believes the document is fraudulent.
Riley has yet to respond in court.
