He added she was accompanied by Jerry Schilling, a longtime family friend that managed her and her late father in their careers.
“You could see her hanging on to Jerry’s arm there, she was very uneven in her balance, her speech was very slow,” Bush told Fox LA.
Lisa Marie died suddenly on January 12, after being rushed to the hospital.
The 51-year-old noted that she seemed “definitely off” during the interview.
