The two had been living together since their 27-year-old son Benjamin died by suicide at her home in Calabasas in 2021.
A source said they were not romantically involved but became “very close again” and barely left the house as they tried to come to terms with their son’s death.
Lisa and Danny, who also have daughter Riley, 33, were married for six years from October 1988 until May 1994 after she filed for divorce in the Dominic Republic.
They met when Lisa Marie was a teenager and they were both attending a drug rehabilitation center.
Just 20 days after it was finalized, Lisa shocked the world by marrying The King Of Pop, Michael Jackson.
The singer and her ex, a Chicago-born musician who was once part of her backing band, tied the knot at the Celebrity Center International of the Church of Scientology in West Hollywood, with just nine witnesses watching them exchange vows.
After their divorce, Lisa spoke highly of Danny, 58, even describing him as her “best friend” in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2003.
“He’s my absolute best friend in the world,” she said. “The smartest thing I’ve ever done is have children with this man because I knew this is the one man I could be connected to for the rest of my life.”
Danny was left devastated by their son’s suicide, with Priscilla Presley saying the dad was “completely lost.”
It was her former husband who tragically found Lisa Marie unresponsive on January 12, 2023.
According to TMZ, the actor performed CPR on Lisa Marie until paramedics arrived at the property.
Insiders claim that prior to the A-list event, however, Elvis and Priscilla’s only daughter kept to herself as she faced her grief head-on.
A source told The U.S. Sun exclusively: “In her final years, she was racked with grief over Ben, he was her baby, and he relied on her heavily. Her world completely fell apart when he died.
“She was comforted having her ex Danny [Keough] around again, they weren’t romantic but they were close.”
Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital on Thursday after going into “full [cardiac] arrest.”
She was discovered by her housekeeper, who found her in her bedroom unresponsive, the outlet reported.
Lisa Marie is survived by daughter Riley, 33, her mother Priscilla, and twins Harper and Finley, 14.
