American singer and songwriter, Benjamin Keough, has died in Calabasas California from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 27.
Benjamin, who is the son of Lisa and Danny Keough and also the grandson of legendary Rock and Roll singer Elvis Presley, had struck a record deal worth $5 million while will a teenager.
Before Benjamin Keough died, he acted in a few movies, including a short film called Rod and Barry. His sister is actress Riley Keough, who’s been in a number of horror films, including 2019’s “The Lodge.”
He, however, kept quite a low profile but is well-known for his uncanny resemblance to his famous grandfather, Elvis Presley.
Lisa previously addressed the similarity, saying: “Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage.”
She added, “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.” She even wrote a song about Ben called “Storm and Grace.” Storm’s his middle name.
Lisa’s manager, Roger Widynowsk, tells TMZ: “She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated, but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Recently, American actor Gregory Tyree Boyce who’s reckoned for his great role as Tyler Crowley in popular Movie “Twilight” and his Nigerian girlfriend identified as Natalie Adepoju were found dead in their resident at Las Vegas.
Reports revealed that the cousin of the actor found their bodies in their home lying down cold.
An eyewitness said, “Greg’s cousin woke up and noticed that Greg’s car was still at the house. He was worried because Greg was to be in LA. His cousin went to check on him and found them”.
