Benjamin Keough’s Graceland grave is being moved to make room for mother Lisa Marie Presley’s body, multiple estate staffers confirm to Page Six.
“They are moving the grave of Benjamin to make room for Lisa in the cemetery behind the house,” an insider exclusively tells us.
Presley’s rep also confirmed to us Thursday the grave is being “slightly” moved.
Photos obtained by TMZ Wednesday showed the late “Lights Out” singer’s grave being prepared next to Keough, who died by suicide in July 2020 at age 27.

The family’s tombs are all located around the Memphis, Tenn., mansion’s famous backyard fountain.
Work on the memorial site began Tuesday, according to the outlet, but there are other changes expected ahead of Sunday’s public celebration of life that will honor Presley.

The daughter of music icon Elvis Presley died Jan. 12 at the age of 54 after suffering cardiac arrest in her California home. She had been rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center and placed on life support, but she was taken off after her family signed a do-not-resuscitate order.
That night, Lisa Marie’s 77-year-old mother, Priscilla Presley, announced “with a heavy heart” the “devastating news” that her “beautiful daughter” had passed away.

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known,” the Presley matriarch said in a statement, mere days after she attended the 2023 Golden Globes with Lisa Marie.
A rep for the deceased star’s daughter Riley Keough previously told Page Six that the actress, her grandmother Priscilla and her half-siblings are “grateful for the support, well-wishes and outpouring of love honoring” her mom.

Lisa Marie shared Benjamin and Riley, 33, with ex-husband Danny Keough and 14-year-old twin daughters Harper and Finley with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.
A cause of death has yet to be revealed as a toxicology report is pending.
