Benjamin Keough – Biography & Facts About Lisa Marie Presley’s Son

Benjamin Keough may never have been worth writing about if not for the kind of family he was born into. Though a socialite, his popularity went viral in June 2019 after fans noticed his striking resemblance to the legendary American musician Elvis Presley, who also happens to be his maternal grandfather. The young man is also known for being the grandson of renowned actress and popular business tycoon, Priscilla Presley. To crown it all, his mother is singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley while his sister, Riley Keough, is an actress.

Though from a family that has produced very successful entertainers, Benjamin is yet to clearly state the path he intends to follow, although he’s credited as a delivery guy in the short film Rod & Barry. He was also seen alongside his family members in the 2005 documentary Elvis by the Presleys, where he appeared as himself.

Early Life

Benjamin Keough was born in October 1992 to Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough, a musician based in Chicago. His parents, both Scientologists, got married in October 1988, in the celebrity center of the Church of Scientology in West Hollywood, according to People Magazine. However, their union hit the rocks resulting in divorce in May 1994 in the Dominican Republic.

Benjamin Keough was thrust into the limelight right from the time he was little and this is because he is an offspring of the popular Presley family. In addition to that, the fact that his mother was involved with some of the biggest shots in America’s music and film sectors contributed to drawing the attention of the media to him. He has made regular public appearances with his family on different occasions since he was a child but now that he is grown, Benjamin carefully stays away from the media as much as he can.

However, being the only male descendant of the music star, Elvis Presley, and coincidentally, his replica, the youngster will always have the searchlight of the media directed at him as everyone is on the lookout to know what he would turn out to be.

She began her musical career in the early 2000s, at the age of 35 and according to her, she started out this late because of her father’s legacy in the industry which intimidated her.
