The name of Riley Keough has sounded loud in recent months due to the family drama that the Presley clan starred in after the tragic death, last January, Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the king of rock.
Due to an unexpected change in the will of the ill-fated artist, her mother, Priscilla Presley, lost all control over the fortune bequeathed by Elvis in favor of the aforementioned Riley, the only living daughter of Lisa Marie after suicide, in 2020, of his other son, Benjamin, at the age of 27.
Finally, the dispute between grandmother and granddaughter was closed last June through an agreement that restored “family peace”, based on which Priscilla would receive a million dollars from Riley as compensation.
After shelving such an unpleasant matter, the young woman has been able to redirect all the media attention to her successful career as an actress.
And it is that not everyone was aware that Riley is the protagonist of the acclaimed series ‘Everybody Loves Daisy Jones’, an Amazon Prime production that has just brought her no less than her first Emmy Award nomination.
On her social networks, the 34-year-old interpreter, who bears a remarkable resemblance to her mother, has not only celebrated such an important professional recognition or openly thanked the academy.
Riley has also used the occasion to pay a heartfelt tribute to Lisa Marie and her brother Benjamin, whom she “misses” every day.
“I feel very blessed, thank you very much,” she wrote on her Instagram account shortly after uploading to her stories an image of Lisa Marie holding a then-little Benjamin on her shoulders: “I miss you both,” she dedicated to them.
Riley Keough will compete in the category of best leading actress in a miniseries or movie made for television with Oscar winner Jessica Chastain (‘George and Tammy’), Lizzy Caplan (‘Fleishman is in Trouble’), Dominique Fishback (‘Swarm’), Kathryn Hahn (‘Tiny Beautiful Things’) and Ali Wong (‘Beef’).
The gala will be held on September 18 in Los Angeles.
