Austin Butler’s Touching Golden Globes Tribute to Lisa Marie Presley Goes Viral Following her Sad Death

The singer passed away after having a full cardiac arrest.

The 54-year-old singer and songwriter collapsed at her Calabasas home, and TMZ reported that she has suffered a ‘full cardiac arrest.’

A few sources told the outlet that paramedics arrived at her place after the Lights Out singer collapsed at her residence and performed CPR on her.

The medical team regained a pulse and immediately transferred her to the nearby hospital via ambulance.

Page Six wrote: “EMTs responded to a call reporting a possible cardiac arrest at Presley’s home in Calabasas, Calif., and upon arrival, paramedics performed CPR on the 54-year-old and administered epinephrine.”

The Dirty Laundry singer attended the Golden Globe Award Ceremony on Tuesday along with her mother, Priscilla Presley, and witnessed Austin Butler winning an award for his portrayal of Lisa’s father and iconic singer, Elvis Presley, in ‘Elvis.’

After receiving the award, Austin spoke about the Presley family and thanked Lisa and her mother, Priscilla.

“The Presley family, thank you, guys, for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me,” he told the Tennessee natives. “Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever,” he said in his acceptance speech.

The singer and his mama were seen breaking down in tears during the actor’s emotional speech.

The touching words of Butler went viral, and now the video is doing rounds on social media following Lisa Marie’s passing.

“If you haven’t seen Austin Butler thanking Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley two days ago, see that again this is extra special now… RIP Lisa Marie,” one user wrote on Twitter.

“Austin Butler thanking Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley two days ago is extra powerful now …RIP Lisa Marie Presley,” another penned.

“Wow. For Lisa Marie Presley and Priscilla to watch Austin Butler take home a Golden Globe for his portrayal as Elvis, to then have Elvis’s daughter Lisa Marie die two days later is chilling,” a third fan added.

“So glad Lisa-Marie was present at The GG Awards. She was meant to be there. Previously her also having been involved and to then watch the new movie Elvis revived many precious memories for her. So special. Thoughts & prayers to all the family here and departed,” another commented.

The singer has suffered various health issues in the past few years, and in one of her public appearances, she even admitted that she was ‘grateful’ for being alive.

According to The Mirror, The mom-of-four had a drug addiction problem in the past which she reportedly developed after the birth of her twin daughters, Harper and Finley, in 2009.

“Her addiction came despite losing her father after he developed a ‘dangerous dependence on prescription drugs’, and her ex-husband Michael Jackson after he too had a complication with drug use.”

“You may read this and wonder how, after losing people close to me, I also fell prey to opioids,” Presley wrote in her memoir referencing her father’s death, who passed away in 1977 when Lisa was only 9 years old.

Lisa Marie’s death was confirmed by her mother, Priscilla Presley. 

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” the 77-year-old actress told the Associated Press.

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