Rita Wilson Sends Heartfelt Message to Lisa Marie Presley’s Family – Watch

Rita Wilson, the beloved actress, and wife of Tom Hanks expressed sincere heartache over the death of Lisa Marie Presley. 

The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley died on Jan. 12 at the age of 54 after having a cardiac arrest.

After the news went out of her death, Wilson wrote a heartfelt tribute to the late singer-songwriter and her family.

She had spent time with Lisa Marie’s family when her husband, Hanks, portrayed Elvis Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, in the movie “Elvis.”

“Our hearts are broken with the sudden and shocking passing of Lisa Marie Presley tonight. Tom and I had spent some time with the family during the ‘Elvis’ movie promotional tour,” Wilson wrote on Jan. 12. “Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie. She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad. She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh.”

Wilson also wrote about how Lisa Marie privately showed them her home in Graceland. 

“She was so gracious to us, Austin (Butler), Baz (Luhrmann), and guests,” she wrote. “If you haven’t heard her music please go listen. She had a sultry voice, a power and tenderness, that I have always loved.”

Wilson also sent her love to Lisa Marie’s daughters and family. And she spoke about the tragedy Lisa Marie faced when losing her son, Benjamin. 

“A mother should never have to lose a child. Lisa Marie lost her precious son Benjamin, Priscilla loses her only daughter,” Wilson wrote. “It’s too much. Sending love to the family, prayers for peace and strength. Love, Rita and Tom.”

Lisa Marie Presley was survived by daughters Riley Keough, 33, and 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood. Her son, Benjamin Keough, died by an apparent suicide in 2020.
