Pink, Octavia Spencer, and Leah Remini are among the stars to have paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley following her death.

The singer/songwriter - who was the daughter of late music legend Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley - was rushed to hospital on Thursday (Jan 12) after suffering a cardiac arrest but passed away later at the age of 54, and her friends and acquaintances in the entertainment world have taken to their social media channels to express their shock and sadness at the news.

Pink - who worked on a track called Shine on Lisa Marie's 2005 album Now What - shared a photo of them together and wrote on Instagram: "Oh, this one hurts my heart. Lisa Marie, you were one of a kind. Funny as s***, smart as a whip, sensitive, talented, witty, mean, loving, generous, judgmental but always right, loyal, and you adored your children.

"My heart breaks for you and your beautiful family and your children. The world lost a rare gem today. May your soul rest in peace, friend. [broken heart emoji](sic)"

Like Pink, Leah said she was "heartbroken" by the news.

She tweeted: "I'm heartbroken over the passing of Lisa Marie Presley. Lisa did not have an easy life, as some might think. May she be at peace, resting with her son and father now. Her mom Priscilla and her three daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper, are in my prayers."

Octavia sent a message of support to Lisa Marie's family and fans.

She posted: "So sad that we've lost another bright star in Lisa Marie Presley. My condolences to her loved ones and multitude of fans."

LeAnn Rimes referenced the tragic suicide of Lisa Marie's son, Benjamin Keough - who took his own life in 2020 - in her message.
