Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, was hospitalized Thursday after suffering an apparent cardiac arrest at her home in the Calabasas/Agoura Hills area.
Presley’s mother, Priscilla, wrote on her Facebook page Thursday afternoon, “My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time.”
The Los Angeles County Fire Department would not confirm the identity of the patient, but told City News Service that crews responded at 10:37 a.m. to a home in the 5000 block of Normandy Drive on a report of a woman in her mid-50s suffering a cardiac arrest.
The patient was taken to a hospital at 11:17 a.m. in unknown condition, according to the department.
TMZ, which broke the news, reported that paramedics were able to restore a pulse while working on Presley at her home, prior to taking her to a hospital.
Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley attended the Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton. During the ceremony, Austin Butler won the award for best actor in a drama film for his portrayal of the King of Rock in director Baz Lurhmann’s film Elvis.
Presley, 54, has three children, including actress Riley Keough, and the late Benjamin Keough. Her son took his own life in 2000.
