Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley got into a music career just like her father. She developed her career as a musician and delivered three albums and many singles. Often, straying away from life, after her father passed away she lacked direction and discipline.
Despite that, she went on to become a singer and starred in some movies. During her teenage years, she listened to Devo and the Sex Pistols. Being the daughter of Elvis Presley, she didn’t want to pursue a career in music, but later on, followed it anyways.
Her personal life was also tumultuous. She married her longtime boyfriend, Danny Keough in 1988 and had two children. Sadly, the marriage couldn’t last for very long, and later confirmed she was with Michael Jackson. Three years later, she also divorced Jackson. She was also infamous for getting in a relationship with actor Nicolas Cage and married him in mid 2002.

Her second album proved her as a very successful songwriter. The album ‘Now What’ featured Lisa as co-writer on ten of its 12 songs. It was released in the spring of 2005. This time too, her album reached the Billboard Top Ten album chart. Her third effort came a little late in the spring of 2012. It was produced by T-Bone Burnett and was called ‘Storm & Grace’. She also has deut versions of some of her father’s songs.
In recent years, she was more active in her career. She’s had her share of hardships and filed for divorce from her fourth husband in 2018. She had also released her EP ‘Live From the King’s Room’ last year.
