CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: The death of Lisa Marie Presley has not only devastated her family but also raised questions about who will have full custody of her twin daughters, raising the possibility of a legal battle, reports suggest. The father of 14-year-old twins Finley and Harper, Michael Lockwood, will no doubt file a court petition for full custody of his daughters.
According to sources close to the Presley family who spoke to TMZ. Lockdown says “It’s going to be a cold day in hell before he relinquishes custody of these children.” Those who could claim custody are Lisa’s ex Danny Keough and their daughter Riley. On the other hand, Lisa’s mother, Priscilla Presley, could be trying to get custody of the kids.
Lisa Marie Presley dead: Elvis Presley’s daughter, 54, was in an induced coma after “complete cardiac arrest”.
Lisa, 54, and Lockwood had a bitter relationship and lived apart for five years after splitting in 2016. When Lockwood refused to divorce, at Lisa’s plea, the judge declared that she was officially single in 2021. Lockwood, 61, filed for 40,000 in child support.
Lisa Marie was also married to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage before Lockwood. Now ex-husband Danny Keough, who was living with her and the twins at the time of her death, sees himself as the children’s stepfather. “There is a lot of bad blood between Keough and Lockwood, and there are rumors within the family that he may be fighting to get custody of the children,” sources told the outlet.
To derail the custody battle and cut the drama short, it’s suggested that the judge put pressure on the teenagers because they’re old enough to make their own decision. On the other hand, however, it was reported that Lisa Marie and Lockwood’s bitter five years after her breakdown were plagued by drug use and child abuse.
Keough is the father of Lisa Marie’s daughter Riley, 33, and son Benjamin, who took his own life in July 2020 aged 27, according to the Daily Mail. The outlet said there had been rumors ex Danny Keough and her daughter Riley could also be fighting for custody of the children. Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie’s mother, could also be fighting for custody, according to reports.
