What do we know about Danny Keough's life?

As reported by People, Lisa Marie and Danny met back in 1984 at The Church of Scientology's Celebrity Center, where both were affiliated and Lisa Marie resided at the time. Danny worked as a bass player and the two seemingly fell head-over-heels in love rather quickly. The duo were married in 1988 as Lisa Marie was pregnant with their first child, Riley Keough, who was born on May 29, 1989.

In 1992, the couple welcomed their second child, a son named Benjamin Keough, who was born on Oct. 21 of that year. Unfortunately, Lisa Marie and Danny's relationship fell apart soon after that. The couple divorced in 1994 and just one month after splitting, Lisa Marie married Michael Jackson. Interestingly enough, Danny and Lisa Marie were cordial immediately after their split, with the former even attending Lisa Marie's wedding to Jackson.

Unfortunately, tragedy intertwined Lisa Marie and Danny once again in 2020. Their son, Benjamin, died by suicide and left his family scrambling to pick up the pieces. Per The Sun, Lisa Marie was "being comforted by her first husband" in the wake of Benjamin's death.

"Danny has moved around a lot in the past but came back to be by Lisa's side immediately when they were left devastated by Ben's death, he was staying with her at the Beverly Hills Hotel," the source noted at the time.

Although nothing romantic manifested between the duo during this "extraordinarily difficult time," it did reaffirm that Danny was "a rock" for Lisa Marie and how the former couple was "very close" despite their divorce.

Little is known about Danny's life nowadays, and he hasn't made a public statement in the wake of Lisa Marie's death.

According to reports, Lisa Marie was living with Danny at the time of her death. A housekeeper found her unresponsive and Keough performed CPR on Lisa Marie until the paramedics arrived. She was taken to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest, but unfortunately couldn't be saved.
