Lisa Marie Presley's ex-husband Michael Lockwood 'left in the dark' over singer's estate
Lisa Marie Presley’s fourth husband Michael Lockwood is said to have been "left in the dark" over the late singer's estate.
Elvis' only daughter – who died aged 54 on January 12 – married 61-year-old guitarist Michael in 2006 and they had twins Finley and Harper Vivienne, 14, in 2009, before their split in 2016 triggered a divorce and child maintenance payment fight that dragged on until her death.
And in new court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Michael's lawyer has filed a "notice of the death of a party" and claimed they have no idea who will be distributing assets to beneficiaries and who the Trustees of the estate are.
His attorney said: “We do not currently know the intended Executors and Trustees that the late Lisa Marie Presley had named.”
Last week, it was reported that Michael will get full custody of their twins.
The girls are said to want to live with Michael full-time, with TMZ reporting the twins have been living with him since Lisa Marie’s death.
It had been reported Lisa Marie’s twins could be at the centre of a custody battle.
Michael is said to have declared it will be a “cold day in hell before he gives up custody of those children”, according to sources connected to the Presley family.
Michael has 40 per cent custody of the twins, who had been living with Lisa Marie at the time of her death, while the singer held 60 per cent.
There were “rumblings” Lisa Marie’s ex Danny Keough and daughter Riley could fight to get custody of the children.
But under California law, Michael would only have been denied full custody if there were findings he had been an unfit parent.
Danny, 58, is Lisa Marie's first husband and they share actress daughter Riley Keough, 33, together.
They also had a son Benjamin, who took his life aged 27 in 2020.
Michael is married to Beauty Beach Lounge hairstylist Stephanie Hobgood and they live in an estate estimated to be worth $800,000 in Thousand Oaks, California.
Michael and Lisa were still locked in their divorce battle until her death, as he was seeking $40,000 a month in court in child support for their twins.
Mum-of-four Lisa Marie was also married to Michael Jackson, who died aged 50 in 2009, as well as Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.
