Lisa Marie Presley Addresses Drug Addiction Struggles of Past Several Years

Lisa Marie Presley Opens Up About Addiction 'Struggle' and Elvis in Rare TV Interview

In her first television appearance in four years, Elvis Presley's only child, Lisa Marie Presley, reflected on her famous father and how his music helped ground her at a time when she really needed it.

Finally seeking help, Lisa-Marie said her therapist even expressed fears for her life at her worst point, and explained: "My therapist said "you're a miracle..." "And by the way, the struggle and addiction for me, started when I was 45 years old. It wasn't like it was happening all my life", she continued.

The daughter of rock legend Elvis Presley was widely reported to have checked into a Los Angeles rehabilitation facility to tackle a prescription pill problem in August 2016, weeks after splitting from her husband Michael Lockwood, the father of her nine-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley. "She said that they're the reason she's alive", Bush Hager stated on behalf of Presley.

Lisa Marie now admits that today she is sober and lucky to be alive.

Lisa Marie Presley recently addressed her past drug addiction struggles, saying that she feels she has "come a long way."

"I've never seen, and I don't think anyone who had ever known Lisa Marie, has ever seen her lose her composure".

"I was overwhelmed when I was singing it", Presley admitted.
