Lisa Marie Presley died after second cardiac arrest, family signed DNR

Lisa Marie Presley’s family reportedly signed a do-not-resuscitate order before the singer died following a second cardiac arrest in hospital.

Sources had previously reported on page six that the singer had been declared brain dead after being rushed to hospital on Thursday, prompting doctors to put her in a medically induced coma.

However, with the news of her “critical” condition, the singer’s family decided to sign a DNR in case she suffered another cardiac arrest — which she did, according to TMZ.

Further details about her death come after Lisa Marie was found unconscious in her California home by her housekeeper on Thursday morning. Her first ex-husband, Daniel Keough, who lived with her, performed CPR until EMTs arrived.

However, after EMTs were able to revive her after administering epinephrine, she “coded multiple times” while in the hospital.

Her mother, Priscilla Presley, later confirmed that her “beautiful daughter Lisa Marie [had] left us.”

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known,” she said in a statement shared with various media outlets.

Since her tragic death, several celebrities have paid tribute to the Princess of Rock and Roll, including “Elvis” star Austin Butler and two of her ex-husbands, Nicholas Cage and Michael Lockwood.

On Friday, family representatives told Page Six that she would be buried next to her father, Elvis Presley, and son Benjamin, who committed suicide, at Graceland.

She is survived by her mother and three daughters: 33-year-old Riley and 14-year-old twins Finley and Harper, who will now inherit the iconic Tennessee estate.

Despite the late singer reportedly losing most of her $100 million estate over the years, Elvis’ house is worth $400 to $500 million, according to Rolling Stone.

An official cause of death has yet to be released, and Page Six sources said no drugs were found at the scene.
