Her smouldering gaze and curled lip leaves no doubt that Lisa Marie Presley is every inch her father’s daughter, but it now appears she’s also inherited a few of Elvis’ less appealing qualities.
The 39-year-old looked bloated and dishevelled at a charity event in New York last night, where she closely resembled the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll during his demise.
She was joined at the event by Priscilla Presley, who at 62, looked surprisingly more youthful than her daughter.
Lisa Marie, who was just nine when her father was found on the bathroom floor at Graceland at the age of 42, recently recorded a duet of In The Ghetto to honour the 30th anniversary of his death.
She broke down in a flood of tears when she heard a final version of the track, which was released in August to raise money for charity.
She said: “We had two hours to lay down my vocals. So the next morning, I heard the rough and I’ve never cried when I’ve done anything but I just lost it when I heard it.”
The song features Lisa Marie’s voice layered over the original version of the 1969 hit.
“People have been asking me to do another duet with him forever, but I had to do my own thing before I went back there.”
“So I was ready. I just had to figure out what would be right. And suddenly it came to me, all at the eleventh hour.”
“I do think this idea would mean a lot to him.”
“Singing this particular duet with him was more emotional for me than anything I’d done before. I wanted to focus on something important, and not just do something silly.”
Presley, whose former husbands include Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson and Danny Keough, is now married music producer Michael Lockwood.
She has two children, 18-year-old Riley and Benjamin, 14, from her previous marriage to Keough.
