Dolly Parton hopes Lisa Marie Presley is 'happy' in heaven with her father Elvis

Dolly Parton has shared a loving tribute to Lisa Marie Presley following her tragic death at the age of 54.

Dolly, 76, said she hopes Lisa Marie is "happy" in heaven with her late father Elvis Presley, adding that he has been "waiting for her".

Lisa Marie sadly died on January 12 after her body was found at her home in Calabasas, Los Angeles and she was rushed to hospital where she passed away.

Reports suggest she suffered a cardiac arrest at her home and then a second on the way to the hospital, by which point her family had already ordered a DNR - do not resuscitate.

Speaking about Lisa Marie's death, Dolly said it is "a sad, sad loss".

"I just wanted to send my sympathies to Priscilla 'cause I can only imagine, but I knew he'd be waiting for her.

"I thought, 'Well, Elvis is there waiting for her,' and we just all love that family and just wish them the best, but that was a sad, sad loss.

"Hopefully they are up there being happy together, and hopefully Priscilla [Presley] will find some peace through the love that we all have for her," Dolly told Entertainment Tonight.

The 9 to 5 hitmaker took to Instagram on Saturday to offer her condolences to Lisa Marie's mother Priscilla Presley.

She wrote: "Priscilla, I know how sad you must be. May God comfort you at this time.

"Elvis, I know how happy you must be to finally have her home and to have her back with you."

She added: "Lisa Marie, may you rest in peace. We all love all of you."

Lisa Marie will be laid to rest at her father's Memphis mansion Graceland, next to her beloved son Benjamin Keough.

The iconic home of Elvis will go to Lisa Marie's three daughters - Riley Keough, 33, and twins Finley and Harper, 14.

The property was Lisa Marie's childhood home and is where Elvis died in 1977 at the age of 42, when Lisa Marie was just nine-years-old.

She will be laid to rest during a public memorial service which will take place on Sunday January 22.
