Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me.
You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world. I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.

make of this what you will...



Benjamin Keough shot himself at a party for his girlfriend Diana Pinto and brother-in-law Ben Smith-Petersen's joint birthday, DailyMail.com can reveal
Smith-Petersen, 29, is the Australian stuntman husband of Keough's sister Riley.

The two couples (also) celebrated the joint birthday together in 2018 with a holiday to Tulum, Mexico.

Neighbors heard Keough, 27, partying at his mother Lisa Marie Presley's $1.8M Calabasas, California, home late on Saturday July 12. Around 3.30am, they heard a woman believed to be Pinto screaming 'don't do it' .

Police arriving around 6am discovered Keough had locked himself in the bathroom and shot himself in the head with a shotgun.

The tragic news comes as Pinto posted a loving, heartbroken tribute to her late boyfriend of more than four years, on Instagram on Sunday. Pinto wrote 'I don’t know how I’m supposed to do this life without you' and that she now knows 'the true meaning of grief.'

Keough's mother Lisa Marie Presley was seen holding hands with Pinto as they walked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel where the singer had been holed up.

Keough's father was also spotted speaking to Pinto outside the luxury hotel – the first time the low-profile former bassist has been pictured in public for years.

National Enquirer is quick to get in on the act:

That's right. I never bought a copy but am aware of National Enquirer reputation as one of the more gutter journals around.

Is it owned by Murdoch ?

I haven't read this, I'm not going to. I don't know why anyone buys this rubbish. I bought one many years ago, never again. It's complete and utter trash.

I get it & post details only when the Presley family is featured.

Some members here might be interested to see what is being currently published about our man, true or not.

It's beyond me. We know it's going to be junk, so why even waste your time?

To be fair, I have seen through the years previously unpublished photos in the tabloids. The upstairs at Graceland including bathroom was first seen in the Star, I believe. If one can ignore the writing, it can be interesting when photos are or were, concerned.

Glad that Priscilla has been able to put together a public statement (although she didn't really have to ).

This poor woman has historically endure so much criticism from the fans and , as far as i'm concerned, most of it unjustified, including why she hasn't posted an official statement after the immediate loss of her grandson.

Thoughts and condolences go out to her, Lisa and the family.


Benjamin Keough Dies: Priscilla Presley Mourns On Facebook For Her Grandson

Priscilla Presley
on Wednesday

These are some of the darkest days of my family’s life. The shock of losing Ben has been devastating. Trying to put all the pieces together of all the possible whys has penetrated my soul. Each day I wake up I pray it will get better. Then, I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through as she was a doting mother. Ben’s father, Danny, who is completely lost, as Ben was his only son. Riley, so loving and so close to him; Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest In Peace Ben, you were loved. ❤️

Elvis' one time partner Linda Thompson has posted this over on instagram :

This beautiful little blonde haired angel face is the way I remember Benjamen Keough. He looked so much like Elvis - especially when he was little. My heart and soul go out in deepest sympathy to his mom, Lisa Marie, his grandmother, Priscilla, his dad, Danny, his siblings & everyone who knew and loved him. This is an unspeakable tragedy and there truly are no words…
