Benjamin Keough’s ex-girlfriend, Alexa Rohde, shared a touching tribute after he died of an apparent suicide over the weekend.
“Benjamin Storm, YOU. Always happy in the sun and water. And a laugh that made everyone happier,” the makeup artist captioned a series of photos of the 27-year-old grandson of Elvis Presley on Monday. “You gave love to anyone who needed it. You were wise like a thousand year old man, but silly as a 5 year old. You always said your favorite tarot card was the hermit, cause you could relate.”
The post continued, “You made the best jokes, and always broke the rules. You were my favorite person from the moment I met you. I wish we could’ve kept you forever Ben Ben. I hope you’re having all the delicious sushi in paradise💙words will never be enough.”
According to TMZ, Keough — the son of Lisa Marie Presley and her first husband Danny Keough — died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in California on Sunday.
The death of her son left Lisa Marie “entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated,” her manager, Roger Widynowski, said in a statement.
“She adored that boy. He was the love of her life,” Widynowski added.
Sources told writer Tony Ortega that Keough struggled with booze and drugs and had recently gone to rehab.
