The announcement came just hours after Priscilla Presley confirmed that Lisa Marie Presley had been rushed to hospital earlier on Thursday.

Paramedics in Los Angeles County were dispatched to a home in Calabasas just after 10:30 a.m. local time after a report of a woman in complete cardiac arrest, according to Craig Little, a spokesman for the county fire department.

Property records indicate that Presley lived at that address.
