Lisa Marie died on Dec. 12, 2023 after being hospitalized for cardiac arrest. She was 54.

Lisa Marie Presley died in Los Angeles on Thursday after she suffered cardiac arrest and was subsequently hospitalized. She was 54. 

The unexpected death left many in shock, and the singer-songwriter's famous friends, fans and family expressed their grief and shock in a number of tributes shared on social media.

A rep for Lisa Marie's mom, Priscilla Presley, released a statement to ET confirming the news of her death.

Oprah Winfrey remembered Lisa Marie on her Instagram Story, writing that she and the late singer "felt a kinship towards each other."

"My maternal ancestors were also Presleys, so we would often call each other 'Cuz.' While Henry Louis Gates Jr. confirmed we weren't actually related, we always liked to think so," she wrote. "Throughout the years we had many conversations-on camera, off camera and even on hikes-and she was always 100% genuine. Rest well 'Cuz.' Blessings to her mom Priscilla and her daughters Riley, Finley, and Harper."
