So tragic.

Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death has been revealed as complications resulting from weight loss surgery, her autopsy report says.

The daughter of Elvis Presley died back in January after making a rare appearance at the Golden Globes with her mum Priscilla.

She was found two days later in cardiac arrest at her home by her former husband and was rushed to hospital but unfortunately didn’t survive.

The L.A. County Coroner’s office has now listed her death as resulting in a previous injury or disease.

The autopsy report shows that she had a strangulated small bowel due to a build up of adhesions and caused by bariatric surgery which Lisa Marie had undergone years prior.

According to her toxicology report, the 54 year old was also found to have opioids in her system when she passed.

The coroner found that there was a “therapeutic” level of Oxycodone in her blood, as well as another opioid Buprenorphine which is commonly used to treat opioid dependence.

According to TMZ, there was also a trace amount of the antipsychotic drug Quetiapine.

The coroner’s notes report that “no drug paraphernalia or narcotics” were found in her home at the time of death and her urine toxicology screening was negative.

Lisa Marie had undergone a cosmetic procedure several months before her death and was prescribed opioids at the time.
