They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time,” the family said in a statement, stated news agency AFP. Rita Wilson, John Travolta, Octavia Spencer and other stars paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley. A post shared by Rita Wilson, wife of Tom Hanks, who starred in the recent biopic movie Elvis, read: “Our hearts are broken with the sudden and shocking passing of Lisa Marie Presley tonight. Tom and I had spent some time with the family during the Elvis movie promotional tour. Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie. She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad. She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh.”

“Lisa baby girl, I’m so sorry. I’ll miss you but I know I’ll see you again. My love and heart goes out to Riley, Priscilla, Harper and Finley,” wrote John Travolta in his tribute.

“So sad that we’ve lost another bright star in Lisa Marie Presley. My condolences to her loved ones and multitude of fans,” Octavia Spencer’s tweet read.

Billy Corgan, longtime friend of Lisa Marie Presley, in his tribute, wrote: “There is heartbreak and then there is sorrow. This would be sorrow and on more levels than I can count. Please send your prayers out for her family and children at this difficult time. I truly cannot find the words to express how sad this truly is. RIP Lisa Marie Presley.”

Actress Jennifer Tilly shared a photo of her recent visit to Elvis Presley’s grave and she wrote: “So sad about Lisa Marie Presley. Oddly I was just at Graceland yesterday and took this picture. The guide was telling us that sometimes she would have dinners in the dining room, and once she had a party for her friends in the plane named after her. Rip sweet soul.”
