‘Big sister… i hope you are now at peace and happy with your Dad and your son by your side,’ Garibaldi said. ‘I know the past couple years weren’t easy for you, and I wish things had been different between us … regardless, you are my sister and I’m sending love and prayers for your journey home.
He wrapped up in saying, ‘I still can’t believe this, I’m lost for words. Love you sis. Beijos.’
Garibaldi, who is the son of Priscilla Presley, 77, and her ex, producer Marco Garibaldi, 68, paid tribute to his late half-sister a day after his mother confirmed in a statement that the singer-songwriter had died after she was rushed to a hospital in the wake of what was thought to be a cardiac arrest.
‘It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,’ Priscilla told People in a statement. ‘She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known.

Lisa Marie’s last public appearance at the Golden Globes came two days before her death, where she attended in support of the Baz Luhrmann film Elvis.
At a pre-Golden Globes bash on January 8, which was the anniversary of Elvis’ birthday, Lisa Marie praised Luhrmann and the film’s star Austin Butler.
‘I’m so overwhelmed by this film and the effect that it’s had and what Baz has done, Austin’s done,’ Lisa Marie said. ‘I’m so proud, and I know that my father would also be very proud … I’m overwhelmed with gratitude, so thank you.’
