Lisa Marie Presley’s friend claims Priscilla is trying to ‘take money’
Priscilla Presley has challenged her daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s will which makes Riley Keough the trustee after her death, according to We weekly.
However, according to a friend of the late singer, who told page 6 that it’s just an attempt to “take money” from Priscilla.
“It’s strictly a cash grab,” the source said. “She had no relationship with Priscilla, [her ex-husband] Michael Lockwood or his half-brother [Navarone Garibaldi].”
The source added that Lockwood, who had a bitter divorce from Lisa Marie, was not invited to his ex-wife’s memorial despite her attendance.
Another source added that Lockwood was not mentioned at the memorial service held on January 22, 2023, but Danny Keough was.
Priscilla, Lockwood and Garibaldi are represented by the same publicist, Caroline Galloway, in an effort to launch the will in question.
Priscilla filed court documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, Jan. 27, in which she disputes that a previously added 2016 amendment had an “invalid signature,” per We weekly.
According to the outlet, the filing alleged that Priscilla and the late singer’s former business manager, Barry Siegel, were originally named co-administrators before a late addition dropped their names in favor of her children Riley Keough and Benjamin Keough.
Lisa Marie is said to have exhausted her $100 million fortune left to her by her late father, Elvis Presley. In 2018, she sued her former business manager, Barry Siegel, for negligence and mismanagement of his inheritance, per Page 6.
The singer-songwriter, who died at 54 on January 12, 2023, after suffering a cardiac arrest, reportedly took out $35 million in life insurance policies, but had racked up more than $4 million in debt.
