Elvis Presley’s Grandson Looks Exactly Like The Legend


Rock and roll icon Elvis Presley captivated
the world with his timeless hits and signature moves, from the peak of his fame in the ’50s
all the way until his death in 1977. “Uh-huh-huh.” Although the “Jailhouse Rock” crooner was
swooned over by his masses of fans, he ultimately settled down with wife Priscilla, with whom
he had one child: Lisa Marie Presley. Unlike her father, Lisa Marie has mostly shied
away from the spotlight, despite a brief marriage to pop superstar Michael Jackson. As she once told Oprah: “I’ve never been comfortable being front and
center, honestly. Don’t like attention on me” Another person that’s inherited Lisa Marie’s
desire for privacy is her eldest son, Benjamin Keough. Not much is known about Elvis’ grandson, but
he went viral in 2019 after his mother posted a family photo of him and his siblings. Twitter users immediately began commenting
on Keough’s resemblance to his grandfather. One user wrote: “Your son is a twin of your Dad. Nice family!” Of course, these days it’s easy to keep up
with your favorite celebrity if you’re following them on social media. That being said, if someone doesn’t have social
media, it becomes far more difficult to keep tabs on them. Case in point? Benjamin Keough. While both his mother and sister, Riley Keough,
have social media accounts, Benjamin doesn’t appear to have a social media presence at
all. This is probably why so little is known about
him. But while it’s clear that Elvis Presley’s
grandson won’t be posting selfies to Instagram anytime soon, his mom’s account offers a few
insights into Keough’s life. While Lisa Marie Presley’s shot of her kids
went viral in June 2019, it actually wasn’t the first time she had posted a photo that
showed off Benjamin’s striking resemblance to his grandfather. A year earlier, she had shared two pictures
of her and Benjamin. One showed them backstage together at the
Grand Ole Opry in 2012. The other shot, also from 2012, was of the
two filming Good Morning America. So what about Keough’s upbringing? Well, although Benjamin Keough and his siblings
likely had a comfortable upbringing thanks to the enormous fortune left behind by Elvis
Presley, they’ve still managed to stay quite humble. In an interview with The Guardian, Benjamin’s
sister, Riley Keough, said: “I grew up very privileged with my mother. But my dad didn’t live like that…My father
had mattresses on the floor of his apartments…He just didn’t have much money.” But their father’s lack of luxury didn’t seem
to put a dampener on Riley and Benjamin’s childhood. “My memories of growing up with him were so
colorful and eccentric and fun. It was a good vibe.” While it’s clear that Riley had a pretty good
relationship with her father, it seems that Benjamin might be a bit closer to their mother. In fact, Benjamin and Lisa Marie Presley even
got matching tattoos together. When a Twitter user asked Presley about the
tattoo on her foot back in 2013, she replied: “It’s a Celtic eternity knot that my son and
I got together on Mother’s day a few years ago. Eternal love and connection.” And Lisa Marie is well aware of the striking
resemblance between Benjamin and his grandfather. In 2012, she told CMT News: “He does [look so much like Elvis]! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm
behind the stage. Everybody turned around and looked when he
was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because
it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at
him.” And it’s not just looks that the Graceland
heir received from Presley. It seems like Keough might have inherited
a knack for making music, too. In 2009, the Daily Mail reported that Keough
had allegedly recorded his first album and signed a £3.3 million, five-album deal with
the record company Universal. Unfortunately, Universal denied those claims. Asked about her son’s potential singing career,
Lisa Marie told Huffington Post: “I’m going to let him decide when he wants
to go out and do what he wants to do.” Whether or not Keough is still making music
remains a mystery, but he did share one fascinating tidbit about it at an awards ceremony in 2009,
when he said: “The music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing
like him at all.” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. I can the resemblance between Lisa Marie and her daughter Riley, but I can't see that much within Elvis and his grandson, but it's all good. Thanks for sharing your video.

  2. I do see a resemblance in some of these pictures, the way Elvis looked when he was young. When I saw Elvis in person and very close up, he was nineteen years old and just starting his career and his grandson does look like Elvis did then. I would have hardly recognized Elvis himself in his final years.

  3. My first grade teacher married Elvis cousin. He looked just like Vernon Presley. They went to our church. It was like seeing Elvis dad at church every Sunday. Good times and good people

  4. Now that I've read most of the comments below on how this kid does NOT look like Elvis, I realize that I'm not crazy or in the Twilight Zone.

  5. I don't see the resemblance. Lisa Marie looks just like her father, but I don't see it in the son. I saw it in the one daughter.

  6. ELVIS GRANDSON DOES NOT RESEMBLE ELVIS LIKE SOME PEOPLE ARE CARRING ON ABOUT. HE LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE ELVIS BUT NOT A LOT.

  7. I only seen a couple of photos of Benjamin, they mostly were showing Elvis lol 😂 if they were trying to prove something you were about as far away from providing the proof as you can get !who’s in charge of this stupid video clip anyway?

  8. Sorry, but that kid to be checking my groceries and I would not think about Elvis.
    I grew up with Elvis everywhere as my grandmother was obsessed with The King.
    Hard FAIL!

  9. This is clearly a conspiracy like everything else is. There was a cover-up just like there always is. It just breaks my heart.

  10. He don't in these pics. But I have seen some that do look more like Elvis. They have a side by side with Elvis that looks more like him.

  11. @Nicki Sw… 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷Parabéns pelo lindo vídeo. Amooo essa família. Ameeei o vídeo! Obrigada! Bjs!😘🇧🇷😘👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻ELVIS FOREVER KING👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  12. @Nicki Sw…. 😘🇧🇷Parabéns pelo lindo vídeo Thank You very much 😘🇧🇷😘🇧🇷😘 ELVIS FOREVER KING MAGNÍFICO E INESQUECÍVEL AMOOO🇧🇷👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  13. Great example of another Offspring trying to rob someone else's coattails into Fame blatantly saying my music won't be anything like his cuz he has nothing to do with this cuz if you did grow up in the trailer park or the ghetto that would be an option lol unlike most people who chased that you're sitting back waiting because you know it's there when you want it!

  14. I don't see a strong resemblance to Elvis. I think Lisa Marie does strongly resemble Elvis and her twin girls resemble the Presley's the most.

  15. Run Keough, run. Don't copy someone's life. Be yourself, be different, be better. Elvis was an entertainer but a horrible husband and father. Be Better.

  16. if you youtube elvis being channelled…elvis states that he loves the music his grandson makes and that he is reincarnated in him

  17. It looks like ben dont want anything to do with his grandfather's appearance , looks like he leans toward nirvana's lead singer ,I mean you could have a twin but if you dont want to look like your twin you can make it happen, and this cat ain't no twin lol
