What Is Riley Keough’s Net Worth? Lisa Marie Presley’s Daughter Has Paved Her Own Way
On July 12, 2020, it was reported that Elvis Presley’s only grandson, Benjamin Storm Keough, passed away. He is survived by his mother, Lisa Marie Presley, and his three sisters, including actor Riley Keough. The King’s estate has been a popular topic for many years. So how does that factor into Keough’s net worth? Here’s what we know.
Riley Keough is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough
Keough was born to Presley and her first husband, musician Danny Keough, in 1989. Her brother, Benjamin, came along a few years later. Presley and Keough divorced in 1994. She went on to have brief marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage before marrying Michael Lockwood, with whom she had twins Finley and Harper.
Keough began modeling as a teenager before debuting in the 2010 film The Runaways. She appeared in movies such as The Good Doctor and Magic Mike before starring in season 1 of the anthology series The Girlfriend Experience. Since then, Keough has worked on such popular films as Mad Max: Fury Road and American Honey,
Keough lived two very different lifestyles
After her parents split up, Keough’s childhood involved a lot of traveling. With her mom, she spent time at Graceland and Neverland Ranch. But with her dad, she was usually in Los Angeles or Hawaii. And it was a lot different with him. “I grew up very privileged with my mother,” she told the Guardian in 2017. “But my dad didn’t live like that.”
Keough continued, saying, “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.” She cited her “colorful and eccentric and fun” memories of that “good vibe” lifestyle, saying she once told her dad, “I want to grow up and be poor like you!”
Presley has suffered financial hardship
As for her mother, it’s been a rough road. Following the death of her grandparents, Presley was the sole heir of father’s estate. There are many conflicting reports as to exactly how much Elvis Presley was worth at the time of his death, but it was estimated to be a substantial fortune close to $100 million.
But decades later, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Presley maintained this was the fault of her former business manager, Barry Siegel, while he blames her spending habits. She sued him in 2017. As of 2019, Presley was thought to be very much in debt, with a negative net worth around -$16 million.
What is Keough’s net worth?
As for Keough, she does not seem to have suffered from her mother’s financial struggles. While she spent time among the rich and famous growing up, her more balanced lifestyle may have helped her become thrifty. Keough is estimated to be worth around $5 million.
Given that her brother’s net worth was millions less at the time of his death, we can assume that much of Keough’s net worth comes from her acting work. And as she continues to do multiple films per year, like the Sundance entry Zola and The Devil All the Time opposite Tom Holland, it should only keep growing.
