In 1989 Lisa Marie Presley introduced the world to her daughter Danielle Riley Keough, Elvis’ first grandchild. This baby, now known as Riley, was born into considerable wealth and celebrity and, over a quarter of a century on, has rarely been out of the public eye since those days in diapers. Oh, and she can also boast of having had both Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage as stepfathers. Lucky her, right?
But the now 26-year-old Riley doesn’t dwell on her rather unusual family tree. “People always ask, ‘How crazy is it that your grandpa was Elvis and your stepdad was Michael Jackson?’” she told Esquire in 2016. “I make them happy and say, ‘Yeah, it’s soooo crazy!’ But actually, I don’t think about it, ever.”
When asked about her starry connections, though, Riley’s apparently happy to throw interviewers a few titbits here and there. In fact, she relayed a rather amusing anecdote concerning the King of Pop in the very same chat with Esquire.
