Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars are mourning the loss of Lisa Marie Presley after she died following a cardiac arrest on Thursday. The beloved daughter of rock legend Elvis Presley was just 54.

Her mother, Priscilla Presley, broke the news to the Associated Press shortly after the songstress was put on life support.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla said in her statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

The mother of four was first rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center on Jan. 12 after going into cardiac arrest.

Despite EMTs finding a pulse, she was placed in a medically-induced coma just hours later.

Sources told Page Six that the singer’s heart stopped several times after she was transported to the ICU.

There appeared to be no drugs on the scene of her medical emergency and a cause of death has yet to be revealed.
