The pair were at the ceremony to cheer on Baz Luhrmann‘s film, Elvis. The shock is palpable in many of the tributes from celebrities who knew and loved her. Mourn the loss of this star by reading the warm words of those who knew her best.
“This is devastating news. Lisa had the greatest laugh of anyone I ever met,” Nicolas Cage, who was married to Presley from 2002-2004, shared in a statement. “She lit up every room, and I am heartbroken. I find some solace believing she is reunited with her son Benjamin.”
“Oh, this one hurts my heart,” Pink wrote on Instagram. “Lisa Marie, you were one of a kind. Funny as shit, smart as a whip, sensitive, talented, witty, mean, loving, generous, judgmental but always right, loyal, and you adored your children. My heart breaks for you and your beautiful family and your children. The world lost a rare gem today. May your soul rest in peace, friend. ????”
“I’m heartbroken over the passing of Lisa Marie Presley.” Leah Remini wrote on Instagram. “Lisa did not have an easy life, as some might think. May she be at peace, resting with her son and father now. Her mom Priscilla and her three daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper, are in my prayers.”
“My heart is too heavy for words…????????,” Linda Thompson, who was once in a relationship with Elvis, wrote on Instagram, sharing the above image.
“Our hearts are broken with the sudden and shocking passing of Lisa Marie Presley tonight,” Rita Wilson shared on social media. “Tom and I had spent some time with the family during the Elvis movie promotional tour. Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie.”
“She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad. She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh. She privately showed us her home, Graceland, and she made it feel like home to us. She was so gracious to us, Austin, Baz, and guests,” Wilson continued.
“If you haven’t heard her music please go listen. She had a sultry voice, a power and tenderness, that I have always loved. Our hearts and our prayers go out to Riley, Harper, Finley , Danny @nava_rone and Priscilla. A mother should never have to lose a child. Lisa Marie lost her precious son Benjamin, Priscilla loses her only daughter. It’s too much. Sending love to the family, prayers for peace and strength. Love, Rita and Tom,” the message concluded.
