Does it matter? Either Way the outcome is the same. Lisa Marie Presley, 54, died Thursday while hospitalized in critical condition after reportedly going into cardiac arrest.
“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” read a statement to The Post from a rep for the 77-year-old Priscilla.
“They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla had been in an induced coma and on life support with a temporary pacemaker, according to TMZ.
Sgt. Sean Maloney of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office told The Post that deputies responded to a call at the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in Calabasas at about 10:40 a.m. Thursday at the request of Los Angeles County Fire Department. The call involved a female in cardiac arrest.
Fire personnel were able to get a pulse and she was transported to West Hills Hospital, according to Maloney.
A fire department representative told The Post they were dispatched at 10:37 a.m. and arrived at 10:43 a.m., and a female patient — reported to be 55 — was transported at 11:17 a.m.
I do ,not know if she had any type of heart condition, what I DO know, is that her father had a serious drug problem that led to his death, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she share the same genetic trait of being susceptible to abuse substances.
Lisa Marie Pressly had a very public life, and I am sure that had she been hospitalized for heart related issues that it would have been news.
The singer hasn’t had it easy in the past few years — she previously spoke out about her addictions, and she lost her son, Benjamin, in 2020.
However, Lisa Marie, who shares actress Riley, 33, with ex-husband Danny Keough, previously explained how she was “grateful to be alive.”
UPDATE Still Addicted?
“You may read this and wonder how, after losing people close to me, I also fell prey to opioids,” Presley, who is the daughter of Elvis Presley, wrote in the foreword Harry Nelson’s book The United States of Opioids: A Prescription for Liberating a Nation in Pain.
“I was recovering after the  birth of my daughters, Vivienne and Finley, when a doctor prescribed me opioids for pain,” she shared. “It only took a short-term prescription of opioids in the hospital for me to feel the need to keep taking them.”
What I know is: Fentanyl is being found in illicit drugs EVERYWHERE, so it doesn’t matter how wealthy one is, because if they purchase an illegal drug like Cocaine, and especially Opiods therefore making the liklihood the likelihood that it will be laced with Fentanyl is more probable than not.
