Lisa-Marie Presley, only daughter of legend Elvis, died on January 12 of a heart attack. She leaves behind her daughter Riley Keough, but also her 14-year-old twins Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood and Finley Aaron Love Lockwood.
It is already one of the most significant disappearances of the year 2023, and it leaves everyone in American music in mourning. Lisa-Marie Presley died at the age of 54 on January 12, just hours after a Golden Globes ceremony where she appeared confused and disoriented. A tragic disappearance that affected the entire film crew Elvis, which traces the journey of her father, of whom she was the only daughter. His death, just after the last moving words, was caused by a heart attack, the potential origins of which are known. Since then, the symbolic place of his funeral has been revealed.
She leaves behind media love stories with big stars such as Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, but also three daughters who will never see the color of the millions inherited by their mother. If his son, Benjamin Keough, committed suicide in 2020, his sister Riley Keough, now 33, is alive and well. Just like her twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, born on October 7, 2008. However, they are still minors and a bitter custody battle seems to be underway, as revealed TMZ.
Legal battle ahead
Indeed, the two young girls are the children of Michael Lockwood, guitarist and producer of Lisa-Marie Presley. He has already expressed his intention to initiate proceedings to obtain sole custody of her daughters. However, it was Danny Keough, the father of Lisa-Marie Presley’s first two children and the deceased’s first husband, who raised the twins. He would therefore like to take care of them full time. Add to that the late star’s mother, Priscilla Presley, who also wants to stay with her two granddaughters, and you have a court battle that promises to be particularly tense.
The Lockwood twins have not yet publicly stated that they have a particular preference. This does not prevent them from making strong decisions, since the two sisters have announced that they no longer want to set foot in the house shared by Lisa-Marie Presley, who was incredibly sad before her death, with Danny Keough. “Ttraumatized by the death of their mother“, they would no longer want to live in the house where their mother died.
