Lisa Marie Presley has paid a heartbreaking tribute to “beautiful” son Benjamin Keough, on what would have been his 28th birthday.
The 52-year-old singer songwriter, who is the daughter of Elvis Presley, shared her emotional words on social media, three months after Benjamin took his own life on July 12.
Lisa Marie posted a photo of Benjamin from a previous birthday celebration and wrote a heartfelt note to him alongside it, as she remembered her son who she shared with ex-husband Danny Keough.
Captioning the photo on Instagram, Lisa Marie wrote: “My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven.
“My heart and soul went with you.”
She continued: “The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day.”
Lisa Marie, who also has a 31-year-old daughter, Riley Keough, and 11-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, who she shares with ex-husband Michael Lockwood also said she “will never be the same” after the passing of her son.
She continued on Instagram: “Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley.
“I know you would want that.
“Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much to [sic] good for this world.”
Riley also paid tribute to her late brother, sharing a slideshow of photos in remembrance of his life, with throwbacks and snaps from her wedding in 2015 to stuntman Ben Smith-Peterson.
She wrote: “Happy Birthday beautiful angel.”
Riley added two storm cloud emojis, which is thought to be in reference to his middle named being Storm.
Diana Pinto, who dated Benjamin from September 2017, also posted paid tribute on his birthday.
She also posted a slideshow of photos and videos, most of which celebrated their time together, captioning it: “Happy birthday my love.
“Not much to say just a really hard day, And isn’t it ironic World Series Tampa Bay v Dodgers this year, I bet you’re getting a kick outta that. I love you.”
