Austin Butler as Elvis.
Austin Butler says his heart is “shattered” following the death of Lisa Marie Presley.

Austin Butler “will forever cherish” the time he spent with Lisa Marie Presley before her sudden death on Jan. 12.

“My heart is completely shattered for Riley, Finley, Harper and Priscilla at the tragic and unexpected loss of Lisa Marie,” the “Elvis” actor said in a statement to E! News on Friday, referring to the singer’s daughters and mother.

“I am eternally grateful for the time I was lucky enough to be near her bright light and will forever cherish the quiet moments we shared,” he continued. “Her warmth, her love and her authenticity will always be remembered.”

Butler’s tribute comes just days after he accompanied Lisa Marie to the 2023 Golden Globes, where he snatched the award for Best Actor in a Drama for his role in her father’s biopic movie, “Elvis.”

In fact, in his acceptance speech, Butler, 31, managed to tell Lisa Marie and her mother, Priscilla, just how much they meant to him.

“Thank you guys, thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me,” he said in Elvis’ signature Southern drawl as the two women watched proudly. “Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”

However, fans expressed their concern for Lisa Marie after they noticed she seemed off-balance and needed help to get around.

The celebration quickly turned into mourning as Lisa Marie, who was 54, was rushed to the hospital Thursday after going into cardiac arrest.

The “Lights Out” songstress “coded multiple times” and was put into a medically-induced coma before her mother, 77, confirmed that her “beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.”

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

The singer is survived by daughter Riley, 33, whom she shared with ex-husband Danny Keough. She also shared 14-year-old twins, Finley and Harper, with her fourth ex-husband, Michael Lockwood.

Lisa Marie also shared son Benjamin with Danny. However, he died by suicide in 2020.

On Friday, sources told Page Six that Lisa Marie will be laid to rest next to Benjamin and her father, Elvis, at Graceland in Tennessee.

Garibaldi’s tribute came a day after the pair’s mother, Priscilla Presley, announced her only daughter died after going into cardiac arrest. She was 54.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” she said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

Priscilla first welcomed Lisa Marie with The King of Rock and Roll in 1968 before giving birth to Navarone with her then-boyfriend, Marco Garibaldi, in 1987.

On Thursday, first responders rushed the songstress to West Hills Hospitals and Medical Center in California after she was found unresponsive in her home. They were initially able to revive her pulse after performing CPR and administering her epinephrine.

However, Page Six reported that she coded multiple times at the hospital before being placed on life support.

Reps then confirmed to Page Six that Lisa Marie will be buried next to her late son, Benjamin, who died by suicide in 2020, and her father at Graceland.

She is survived by her daughter Riley, 33, and twins Harper and Finely, 14 — who are now set to inherit the estate.

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York penned a touching tribute to Lisa Marie Presley after the singer died on Thursday, revealing their surprising friendship.

“I say hello to you everyday and I love you my sissy and I will continue to say hello to you everyday,” Fergie, 63, captioned an Instagram photo where the two hugged lovingly on Friday.

“You were my sissy, an amazing mother to Ben, Riley, Harper and Finley and a superbly loving daughter to Priscilla. You have been my devoted friend for many years and I am here for your family to support and love them. I am deeply saddened my sissy, you are in my heart.”

A friend close to Prince Andrew’s ex-wife told Page Six that the two women originally met when Lisa Marie lived in Sussex, England with her ex-husband Michael Lockwood back in 2010.

“They hit it off straight away, they just seemed to understand each other,” the friend told us, explaining that they hung out in the same circle as Bob Geldof, his wife, Jeanne Marine, Jeff Beck and his wife, Sandra.

“They became quite close and kept in touch when Lisa Marie moved back to the States. And she was very supportive of the Duchess when she had tough times, particularly when she was caught up in the ‘Fake Sheikh’ scandal (In 2010, Fergie was recorded offering access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, for money).

The source further told us that Lisa Marie was “one of the few people who really reached out to her,” claiming that “she offered her a refuge” in Hawaii to weather the storm.

“The Duchess never forgot that, Lisa Marie went out of her way to be a supportive friend,” the friend told us. “They really bonded as sisters.”

In fact, the two were so close that they had spoken a few weeks ago “about [Lisa Marie’s] daughter Riley working alongside the Duchess on film projects as her first adult novel is being turned into a TV series or film.”

Fergie — who “regarded Lisa Marie as family” — “is really very upset” after Elvis Presley’s only daughter died after suffering a cardiac arrest at age 54.
