Lisa Marie Presley is living with her ex-husband Danny Keough eight months after their son Benjamin's tragic suicide

LISA Marie Presley is living with her ex-husband Danny Keough after their son's tragic suicide as they grieve together eight months on from his death, The Sun can exclusively reveal.

Elvis' only daughter, who has barely been seen in public since her 27-year-old son fatally shot himself in the head at their family home in Calabasasback in July, is being comforted by her first husband.

Lisa and Danny, who also have daughter Riley, 31, were married for six years from October 1988 until May 1994 after she filed for divorce in the Dominic Republic.

Just 20 days after it was finalized, Lisa shocked the world by marrying The King Of Pop, Michael Jackson.

An insider told The Sun her and Danny are living together in a new home with her 12-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, after her former $2million property sold last year.

The source said: "Danny has moved around a lot in the past but came back to be by Lisa's side immediately when they were left devastated by Ben's death, he was staying with her at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“They are now living with family at a new house in Calabasas and have been grieving together, it’s been an extraordinarily difficult time and he’s been a rock for Lisa.”

The source said they are not thought to be romantically involved but have become "very close again" and have barely left the house in recent months as they try to come to terms with their son's death.

Lisa was left heartbroken after her son Benjamin died, and an autopsy revealed he had cocaine and alcohol in his system at the time of his suicide – while he previously tried to take his life just months earlier. 

"Lisa is still completely shattered," they added. "Ben was her whole world and she's struggling to see sense in what has happened, it's going to be a long time before she feels any better."

The Sun has contacted Lisa's rep who declined to comment.

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. 

Since their divorce, Lisa has spoken highly of Danny, 56, 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.”

Daughter Riley also said she had fond memories of growing up with her dad in a previous interview, describing her childhood as "so colorful and eccentric and fun."

Discussing their different upbringing, she said: "I grew up very privileged with my mother, but my dad didn’t live like that. And I think experiencing both sides has been helpful.

"My father had mattresses on the floor of his apartments. He lived in cabins and trailer parks. He just didn’t have much money."

Riley went on: "It was a good vibe, you know? When I was like eight, I told him, ‘I want to grow up and be poor like you!’ He was eating a bowl of cereal. I didn’t realize how wildly offensive that was!"

After splitting from Danny, and then Michael Jackson in 1996, she went on to have a two-year marriage with actor Nicholas Cage, before tying the knot with her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, in 2006.

The 53-year-old is still battling with her ex in court after being granted 50/50 custody of their twin girls, following their bitter split five years ago.

According to court papers seen by The Sun, she is requesting a bifurcation from a judge in LA to end their marriage, as her ex wants to wait to sign divorce papers.

A source previously said: "Michael is done, but the final custody judgement has not yet been signed and they are still working through issues, he wants to get that out the way first after spending years in court with Lisa."
