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 previously told Page Six that the singer was declared brain dead after being rushed to hospital on Thursday, prompting doctors to put her in an induced coma.

However, with 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 of her death come after Lisa Marie was found unresponsive in her California home by her housekeeper on Thursday morning. Her first ex-husband, Daniel Keough, who lived with her, performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

However, after paramedics were able to revive her after administering epinephrine, she “coded multiple times” in 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 died by suicide, at Graceland.

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

Although the late singer lost the majority of her $100 million inheritance over the years, Elvis’ home is worth between $400 million and $500 million, according to Rolling Stone.

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