Riley Keough Breaks Silence After Her Brother's Death, Writes Heartbreaking Note

Riley Keough is speaking out with some touching words about her late brother Benjamin Keough.

Ben died last weekend at the age of 27 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

On Saturday morning (July 18), Riley took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos featuring Ben and she wrote a heartbreaking note.

“Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me,” Riley started the note.

“You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world,” Riley continued. “I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you’re cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”

We continue to send our thoughts and condolences to Riley, her mom Lisa Marie Presley, and their loved ones during this difficult time.
