Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of late country crooner Elvis Presley is undergoing divorce difficulties. Lisa Marie, 49, and her fourth husband Michael Lockwood are locked in a bitter divorce battle which now includes allegations of child pornography that it appears she has leveled against her soon to be ex husband. According to a blockbuster exposé in the Daily Mail, the following are the major highlights from a court filing by Lisa Marie Presley:
- Lisa Marie’s daughters Finley and Harper Lockwood are in the care of California’s Department of Children and Family Services, court documents state
- Presley, 49, claims to have found inappropriate pictures and disturbing video footage on her fourth husband Michael Lockwood’s computer
- The court papers also state there are pending allegations of sexual abuse and neglect
- Details are included in court papers filed as part of her divorce from Lockwood
- Presley claims police found 80 of Lockwood’s devices during a raid on her home
- She says cops still have the devices and claims they haven’t been fully analyzed
- Presley and Lockwood married in Japan in 2006 but separated last June
- Presley – the only daughter of Elvis Presley – claims she has to pay for two nannies to go along as monitors when her husband visits the children
- Her $300 million fortune, which she claims is nearly all gone, is the subject of divorce proceedings as Lockwood fights for spousal support
The report goes on to chronicle the actual divorce filing itself which is available on the website in a vivid pictorial. In it, Lisa Marie Presley claims she is nearly broke given that most of her $300 million inheritance is “gone.” She also claimed that she has not paid her divorce attorney and that she could not afford to pay Michael Lockwood’s attorney’s fees as well as the $40,000 per month spousal support he is asking the court to grant him.
Apparently, the couple had a prenuptial agreement and at the time it was signed, Lisa Marie had about $60 million in assets – including an 11 bedroom manor house in the English countryside which has subsequently fallen into debtor’s hell. The prenup was signed while both Lisa Maria and Michael Lockwood were allegedly represented by independent counsel but according to the Daily Mail, Mr. Lockwood is now claiming that he was coerced into signing the document and he wants it tossed out.
It is not clear if Ms. Presley is saying that the pictures (child porn) were taken by her husband but the article in the Daily Mail almost seems to suggest that. A closer reading of her Plaintiff’s affidavit also seems to clearly say that she is alleging her husband had taken the photos. Who is or are the subjects? This was not alleged. However, the fact that the twin girls Finley and Harper Lockwood, both 8, have been removed from both their parents’ custody is very interesting to say the least.
Ms Presley is alleging very severe financial hardship due in part to Mr Lockwood’s alleged maxing out of her credit cards. She also claims to owe both the IRS and the Government of the United Kingdom millions of dollars due to misappropriation by some of her financial advisers as well as, presumably, her own gross negligence. She claims to make just under $5000 per month from a job she keeps at Graceland; and she claims to use this money to pay for health insurance for herself and her twin minor daughters.
Lisa Marie Presley has two adult children from previous relationships. She is the ex-wife of both Nicolas Cage and Michael Jackson as well as a guy by the name of Danny Keough. She married Michael Lockwood in a lavish ceremony in Kyoto Japan in 2006.
