Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, has died.

She passed away aged 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest earlier in the day on January 12.

Her mother Priscilla Presley confirmed her daughter's death in a statement.

"It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us," her mother Priscilla Presley, said in a statement, as per AP.

"She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known."

Emergency crews were called to the 54-year-old's home in California on Thursday morning.

A representative for the LA County Fire Department said in a statement: "We were dispatched at 10:37 a.m. to a cardiac arrest call at the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in the city of Agoura.

"We arrived on scene at 10:43 a.m. One person was transported at 11:17 a.m."

Prior to her death, Presley's mother issued a statement calling for people to 'keep her and our family in your prayers'.

Lisa Marie recently attended the Golden Globes awards with her mother to support Austin Butler and the team behind the 2022 film Elvis.

Butler won the award for Best Actor in a Drama, Motion Picture and he gave a shoutout to the Presleys for their support during filming.

"The Presley family, thank you guys for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me," he said.

"Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever."

He also added a nod to the King.

“And lastly, Elvis Presley himself. You were an icon and a rebel and I love you so much. You are remembered, and I will never forget," Butler said.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lisa said she was blown away by Austin's portrayal of her father.

"I really didn’t know what to do with myself after I saw it," she said.

"I had to take, like, five days to process it because it was so incredible and so spot on and just so authentic that, yeah, I can't even describe what it meant."
