“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said.
Lisa Marie, also a singer, was rushed to hospital earlier on Thursday. US media said she suffered cardiac arrest.
“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known,” Priscilla said in a statement.
“We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss.”
Her mother gave no details about the possible cause of death.
TMZ reported that the star was found unresponsive in her bedroom on Thursday morning. Her former husband Danny Keough, who also lives at the property, arrived and performed CPR, the site said.
Born in 1968, Lisa Marie had followed in her father’s footsteps and forged a career in music. The star released three albums, with her 2003 debut studio album selling hundreds of thousands of copies and receiving generally positive reviews.
The star was also well-known for a series of high-profile marriages to pop legend Michael Jackson, actor Nicolas Cage and musicians Keough and Michael Lockwood. She had four children, including the actress Riley Keough. Presley’s son, Benjamin Keough, killed himself in 2020.
