In the wake of her mother’s death, Riley Keough found solace in being close to her sisters. And after a long search for a suitable home, she found one in Calabasas, a quiet suburb of Los Angeles that’s been home to many celebrities. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Keough opened up about her post-tragedy life and the importance of family.
Keough’s mother, Lisa Marie Presley, passed away in January, leaving behind four children, including Keough. Since then, Keough has been seeking a sense of normalcy, and she’s found it in Calabasas. The family has been renting a ’70s tract house on a cul-de-sac, but they’re planning to move to a more private location soon.
Despite the paparazzi that have been parked outside their current home, Keough has found comfort in being close to her sisters, especially her 14-year-old half-sisters, Harper and Finley Lockwood. According to Baz Luhrmann, who was present at Lisa Marie’s funeral, Keough was physically holding the twins as people filed past in the garden.
“I needed to be close to my sisters. There were only three houses available out here, so we just moved in. We were stuck,” Keough said.
But the family’s time in Calabasas is coming to an end, as they prepare to move to a more private location. Still, Keough remains grateful for the time they spent there.
“This is my dream: normalcy. I’m happy out here,” she said.
Keough’s family has been through a lot in the past year, but despite the challenges, she remains optimistic about the future. As for her relationship with her grandmother, Priscilla Presley, Keough was candid about the recent settlement between them, which made her the sole trustee of Lisa Marie’s estate.
“When my mom passed, there was a lot of chaos in every aspect of our lives. Everything felt like the carpet had been ripped out and the floor had melted from under us. Everyone was in a bit of a panic to understand how we move forward, and it just took a minute to understand the details of the situation, because it’s complicated,” she said.
