Benjamin Keough, the son of singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and the grandson of Elvis Presley, was found dead Sunday in an apparent suicide in Southern California, officials say.

The website TMZ reported that Keough died in Calabasas, Calif., from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She adored that boy.

He is son of Lisa Marie and musician Danny Keough.

Presley, who shares Keough with her ex-husband Danny Keough, is "completely heartbroken" over the death of her son.

Ben has kept a low profile throughout the years, but the one thing he's well-known for is looking nearly identical to his famous grandfather, The King himself.

More recently, Lisa Marie Presley told the Huffington Post, "He's doing his own thing right now". She added, "Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there". Lisa Marie told CMT in 2012.

She said: 'Ben does look so much like Elvis. She even wrote a song about Ben called "Storm and Grace". "Stop moving so fast there, and then take your foot off the gas".

He was also known for his striking resemblance to Elvis, which, according to the outlet, Presley once addressed. "This story is totally untrue", Peter LoFrumento, Executive Vice President of Universal Music Group, said at the time.
