Riley Keough shared photographs and videos of memories with Benjamin Keough with fans this week, even showing off some new ink she got in memoriam of her late brother.
The 31-year-old daughter of Lisa Marie Presley has shared a handful of snapshots and clips on her Instagram Story in the wake of her 27-year-old brother’s death, even creating a highlight on her Instagram page that’s solely dedicated to him. Benjamin Keough appeared to have died by suicide earlier this month.
On her Story on Tuesday night, Riley flashed a fresh cursive writing tattoo of her brother’s name “Benjamin Storm.”
The rest of her Story featured a video of Benjamin in Kyoto, who says hello to Riley in the video, and a selfie of the siblings.
Days after Benjamin’s death, Riley wrote a heartfelt message to her brother on Instagram.
“Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me,” she wrote. “You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world. I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart.”
Riley and Benjamin’s mother was reportedly “completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated” at the news of Benjamin’s death. Of Presley, her representative Roger Widynowski said in a statement to The Associated Press that she was “trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley.”
Widynowski added: “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
