Riley Keough has shared a tribute to her late brother Benjamin, who died by suicide last week aged 27.
Benjamin, who died on 12 July, was the son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley.
His sister Riley, an actor who has appeared in Logan Lucky and The Girlfriend Experience, spoke out about his death for the first time on Saturday (18 July), writing on Instagram: “Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me.

“You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world.”
She concluded: “I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me.
“Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”
After news of Benjamin’s death emerged, a representative for Lisa Marie Presley told DailyMail.com: “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.”
