Lisa Marie shared Riley and son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27, with her first husband Danny Keough. The former couple were married from 1988 to 1994.

Lisa Marie has spoken openly about the grief she suffered after losing Benjamin to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
She openly wrote in an August 2022 essay that she was “struggling [herself] standing up tirelessly and chronically, blaming [herself] every single day” for the tragic death of her son.

Riley also opened up about “suffering” while mourning the loss of her brother who passed away.
“I’m just trying to be thankful for everything right now, trying to work in love and keeping my heart open and giving and receiving love,” she told InStyle in June 2021.
“And not in a woo-woo way, because I definitely have rough days and all kinds of aches and pains and all that. But I think if you realize that’s part of it, and your expectation is, not only Feeling joy has been a real change for me, finding those moments and things to smile about.”
