They tied the knot three years later in 1988, when Elvis’ daughter was just 20-years-old.

Priscilla Presley announced the union, saying she was “thrilled” and “couldn’t be happier” for the young couple.

The couple enjoyed six years together before revealing they were getting a divorce in May 1994.

Lisa Marie hastily married Michael Jackson just a month later in the Dominican Republic, with Danny in attendance.

But they remained close friends, with Lisa Marie describing their relationship as “like brother and sister.”

Shortly after their wedding, they revealed they were expecting their first child together.

Their daughter, actress and model Riley Keough, was born on May 29, 1989.

Three years later, their son Benjamin Keough was born on October 21, 1992.

Following their divorce, they harmoniously co-parented their children, with Lisa Marie saying their love was “unconditional.”

In July 2020, Benjamin tragically took his own life during a party for his girlfriend’s birthday at his mother’s Calabasas home.
