Lisa Marie Presley Reportedly Hospitalized For A Medical Emergency

TMZ has reported that Lisa Marie Presley — who has seen her fair share of tragedies — has been hospitalized following a "full" cardiac arrest. Insiders told the outlet that paramedics administered CPR at her California home at least once and found a pulse before she was taken to the hospital. While the status of her condition is unclear, she's currently being treated by medical professionals. A rep for Presley had no comment, per Page Six. Presley's last public appearance was at the Golden Globe Awards on January 10, where her mother accompanied her to witness Austin Butler's win for his performance in "Elvis." 

Fans took to Twitter to express their concerns about Presley's condition. One user tweeted, "So sad. Prayers." Another person wrote, "I hope she will be ok!" Another fan remarked, "Sad to hear i hope @LisaPresley will be ok. Sending prayers her way ! She is a beautiful soul and has had some tough times lately!" 

Lisa Marie recently attended the Golden Globes

At the 2023 Golden Globes, Lisa Marie Presley and her mother Priscilla Presley watched as actor Austin Butler won best actor in a motion picture drama for his portrayal of Elvis Presley. When Butler told the two women that he would love them forever in his acceptance speech, they were visibly emotional (via the Daily Mail). Both Lisa Marie and Priscilla helped Butler prepare for his role by showing him how they saw Elvis, according to the outlet.

Speaking to ET before the award show, Lisa Marie said she hoped Butler would win for his portrayal of her father. "I really didn't know what to do with myself after I saw it," she said of Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis." She added, "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."

Fans were glad to see Lisa Marie at the show after her difficult past few years. In 2020, she lost her son Benjamin Keough to suicide, per Vulture. After understandably stepping away from the public eye following her son's tragic death, celebrating the Golden Globes with her daughter Riley Keough, her mother Priscilla, and Butler was a bright spot (via the Daily Mail). Sadly, just a few days later, Lisa Marie was back in the news after she was hospitalized in California.

If you or anyone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by dialing 988 or by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255)​.

Presley suffered cardiac arrest

An ambulance rushed to the Calabasas residence of Lisa Marie Presley after she went into "full" cardiac arrest on January 12, according to TMZ. A source told the outlet that EMTs gave epinephrine to Presley at least once at her home to regain a pulse. The Los Angeles County Fire Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff's Departments have not responded to requests for comment, per People. A rep for Presley also had no comment, according to Page Six.

Fans and well-wishers took to social media to send hope to Presley while she is treated at the hospital. One user tweeted "I sincerely hope Lisa Marie Presley fully recovers. Lord knows she's been through so much including the death of a child two years ago." Another wrote in part "Prayers up for Lisa Marie Presley and her family. She has been through much in her life." While countless others across platforms reiterated what Austin Butler said during his Golden Globe speech just a few days before her medical emergency: "love you forever."

Lisa Marie's condition immediately sparked conspiracy theories

Almost immediately after Lisa Marie Presley's medical emergency became public knowledge, theories about cardiac arrests being linked to the COVID-19 vaccine flew across Twitter like wildfire. Users took note of how quickly that happened, with one user noting: "Only took 27 seconds to turn Lisa Marie Presley into a conspiracy." Another explained that the conspiracy is even less interesting because heart issues run in the Presley family. As one user wrote: "Before the #CovidConspiracy begins about Lisa Marie Presley's Heart attack please remember Elvis died of a heart attack at the age of 42. His Mother died of a heart attack at the age of 46. Lisa Marie is 54 soon to be 55."

This wouldn't be the first time Lisa Marie was linked to a conspiracy. One rumor that floated around in 2011 was that she was a stand-in for Elvis Presley's real daughter, a woman named Lisa Johansen (via The Guardian). Still, the vaccine conspiracy is continuing its rampage on Twitter. Though one user wants to remind conspiracy theorists that cardiac events have been the leading cause of death for over a century. All the same, we wish Lisa Marie a speedy recovery after this scary incident.
