Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, is having her memoir released posthumously with the help of her daughter Riley Keough.

The book will include her thoughts on her marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, as well as “the shattering loss of her son”.

Lisa Marie, Elvis’s only child, passed away suddenly at just 54 in January 2023.

She lived a complex life under the celebrity spotlight, from losing her father, The King, at just nine years old, to her four failed marriages, which included being married to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage.

Her eldest daughter and Graceland heiress, Riley Keough, has announced that her mother’s posthumous memoir will be released later this year.

Elvis’ granddaughter wrote on Instagram: “I’m honoured to help put my mother’s book out for her. Her autobiography will be out in October with @randomhouse and you can pre order it now.”

The official summary for the yet-to-be-named book says: “Born to an American myth and raised in the wilds of Graceland, Lisa Marie Presley was never truly understood . . . until now. Before her death in 2023, she’d been working on a raw, riveting, one-of-a-kind memoir for years, recording countless hours of breathtakingly vulnerable tape, which has finally been put on the page by her daughter, Riley Keough.”

Random House, the publisher, revealed that before Lisa Marie passed away, she had asked her daughter Riley to help her finish the memoir.

It seems that Riley has since felt guilty that it wasn’t completed before her mum’s death, worried that the world “would never know the loving, joyful, and caring woman that she knew and grieved.”

Elvis’ granddaughter spent hours listening to her mother’s tape recordings for the book. The publisher shared: “She listened as Lisa Marie told story after story about the unconditional love she felt from her father, about being upstairs at Graceland, just the two of them, a sanctuary from the chaos of her life.”

Riley, who is completing her mum’s memoir, shared: “Few people had the opportunity to know who my mom really was, other than being Elvis’s daughter. I was lucky to have had that opportunity and working on preparing her autobiography for publication has been a privilege, albeit a bittersweet one.

“I’m so excited to share my mom now, at her most vulnerable and most honest, and in doing so, I do hope that readers come to love my mom as much as I did.”

Riley has since shared that she’s feeling closer to her mother thanks to completing her memoir when she reunited with her grandmother Priscilla Presley at the 75th Emmy Awards.

“She had been working on it for I want to say three or four years,” she told Variety.

“It’s just something I felt that I needed to do for her and help her complete that project.”

Riley then admitted: “It’s very bittersweet and I am happy to do that for her. I feel honoured to be able to help.”
