Priscilla Presley cries as she recalls death of daughter Lisa Marie Presley: ‘It was unbearable’

Priscilla Presley opened up about the sudden death of her daughter Lisa Marie Presley in an emotional new television appearance. 

During an interview on TalkTV’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” the 78-year-old actress cried as she recalled losing Lisa Marie, who died of a small bowel obstruction at the age of 54 in January.  

“It was unbearable,” Priscilla told Morgan, 58, according to the talk show host’s account of the interview in The Sun. “It’s like a large part of your life is taken away.”

Lisa Marie was the only child of Priscilla and Elvis Presley, the rock icon who died of a heart attack at the age of 42 in 1977. During the interview, which aired Thursday night, Priscilla recalled the last time she saw Lisa Marie before her death.

“I love her,” Priscilla said. “We have always gotten along. It was a little bit of trying to figure out the will, like you normally do, but Riley and I have always been close. I think Riley will be great. She has asked me a few things about what to do. I want to help her with Graceland. She has a great head on her shoulders. I trust her.”

Priscilla also confirmed that she will be buried at Graceland.  

“That’s what I want and wanted,” she said.

“And that will happen?” Morgan asked.

“Yes,” Priscilla replied.
