Riley Keough talks about stepfather Michael Jackson: 'I loved him'

Riley Keough has spoken of her love for late stepfather Michael Jackson

Riley – who received a 2017 Golden Globe nomination for TV series The Girlfriend Experience - was primarily raised by her birth father, Lisa Marie's first husband, Danny Keough. "Looking back on it, I'm like, 'Wow, my upbringing was very intense'," she noted. "I always wanted to be in film. I knew that. I grew up in a family of musicians, so it was also something that I wasn't around a lot. I wanted to make movies and that's all I wanted to do when I was a kid. Film was everything, and I was very fascinated with people and human behaviour."

Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson were married from 1994 until 1996

Lisa Marie, who divorced fourth husband Michael Lockwood last year, maintained an on-again, off-again relationship with Michael in the four years following their 1996 divorce. "He was an amazing person, and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years we had together," she previously said of the star, who died in 2009. "I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now. He deserves to be free from all of that and I hope he is in a better place, or will be."
