While the report does not mention the presence of any drugs in Lisa Marie’s system, US-based entertainment website TMZ reported there could still be toxicology results that have yet to be released.

Lisa Marie, the only child of legendary singer Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla Presley, died on January 12 of this year after suffering cardiac arrest – just two days after she attended the Golden Globes.

She reportedly lost between 40 and 50 pounds in the months leading up to her death, and had been taking opioids in addition to weight loss medication.

She had also recently undergone a plastic surgery operation, according to a source close to the family.

Following her death, a legal dispute emerged between Priscilla and Lisa’s daughter, Riley Keough, regarding a large trust Lisa had established. Initially, Lisa Marie had chosen her mother as one of the co-trustees, but later made changes to cut Priscilla out, leaving Riley in sole control of the trust.

The dispute has since been resolved, with sources close to the situation claiming that Lisa Marie’s estate made an undisclosed monetary payment to Priscilla as part of the settlement, reported to be in the millions.

"The families are happy. Everybody is happy and excited for the future," said Priscilla’s attorney following the May hearing.
