Lisa Marie Presley will be laid to rest alongside her father at Graceland.

The singer passed away on Thursday (12.01.23), aged 54, after suffering a cardiac arrest, and a rep has now confirmed to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ that she’ll be laid to rest at Elvis Presley’s former home in Memphis, Tennessee.

Elvis’ parents, Vernon and Gladys, and his grandmother, Minnie Mae, are all buried at Graceland. Elvis’ twin brother, Jessie, who died at birth, and Lisa Marie’s son, Benjamin – who committed suicide in 2020 – are also buried at the iconic property.

Graceland was opened to the public as a house museum in 1982 and it now attracts more than 500,000 visitors annually.

Meanwhile, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have revealed that they’ve been left heartbroken by the singer’s death.

The couple spent a lot of time with the Presley family while the Oscar-winning actor was shooting ‘Elvis’ – in which he played Colonel Tom Parker, the iconic singer’s manager – and they paid a touching tribute to her.

Rita said on Instagram: “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.

“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. She privately showed us her home, Graceland, and she made it feel like home to us. She was so gracious to us, Austin, Baz, and guests.

“If you haven’t heard her music please go listen. She had a sultry voice, a power and tenderness, that I have always loved.

“Our hearts and our prayers go out to Riley, Harper, Finley , Danny and Priscilla. A mother should never have to lose a child. Lisa Marie lost her precious son Benjamin, Priscilla loses her only daughter. It’s too much. Sending love to the family, prayers for peace and strength. Love, Rita and Tom.”
