Priscilla Presley may say that the family has remained united since the death of Lisa Marie, but the documents filed in court do not support this. The ex-wife of Elvis Presley first challenged the will left by his eldest daughter who bequeaths the management of the King's fortune to his children.

So it's officially his daughter Riley Keough – his son, Ben, who committed suicide two and a half years ago – and twins Finley and Harper Lockwood who inherit the estate left by their mother. Lisa Marie Presley's two youngest daughters are still underage. It is therefore up to a sworn adult to manage their share. And this is where the case continues to take a delicate turn.

A highly coveted trust

The two 14-year-old girls lived with their mother until her death in January. Their former father-in-law, Danny Keough, also resided with Lisa Marie Presley to support her morally following the death of their son Ben. After a (very) bitter battle of several years, the justice had granted the King's daughter a little more custody than their father, the musician Michael Lockwood.

The latter was not invited to the funeral of Lisa Marie Presley, who was still not on good terms with him at the time of his death, but he had come anyway... Escorted by his former mother-in-law, Priscilla Presley!

During their divorce, which lasted from 2016 to 2021, Michael Lockwood had claimed alimony of $ 40,000 per month, "to maintain the lifestyle to which he had been accustomed during his marriage". A sum that was never paid, Lisa Marie Presley arguing that her income was insufficient. The daughter of Elvis Presley now owns only 15% of the company that manages the King's estate, having sold his shares several years earlier to finance his lifestyle. In 2021, Michael Lockwood had tried again to obtain alimony in court, his ex-wife having released a book. She had agreed to pay him $6,000 a month according to Radar Online.

Basket of crabs

As required by law, Michael Lockwood was able to regain custody of his daughters upon the death of his ex-wife. Harper and Finley, who have been living with their father since then, told the judge they wanted to stay with him, as TMZ reported in late January. Today, the artist asks the justice to appoint him "guardian ad litem", that is to say legal guardian of his daughters to "represent their interests" in the trust bequeathed to them by their mother, while the challenge undertaken by Priscilla Presley is settled by the justice.

Riley Keough has so far remained silent, as she promotes the hit series Daisy Jones & the Six, in which she plays the lead role, for Amazon Prime. However, she has to deal with other rumours. The latest, denied by the managers of Graceland: the locks of the house of Elvis Presley were not changed by the granddaughter of the King and Priscilla Presley was not left at the door of the home she once occupied.
