Presley is the only child of Priscilla and the late Elvis. She’s previously been public with her health struggles, including her road to sobriety following her addiction to opioids.

“You may read this and wonder how, after losing people close to me, I also fell prey to opioids,” Presley penned in a forward for Harry Nelson’s 2019 book The United States of Opioids.

“I was recovering after the [2008] birth of my daughters, Vivienne and Finley, when a doctor prescribed me opioids for pain. It only took a short-term prescription of opioids in the hospital for me to feel the need to keep taking them.”

In 2020, Presley’s 27-year-old son Benjamin Keough died from suicide. She opened up about feeling “destroyed” by his death in an essay for People.
