Follow Lisa Marie Presley’s battle for her legacy

(CNN) — A hearing on Priscilla Presley’s January petition challenging the validity of her daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s will was held Thursday in Los Angeles.

Priscilla Presley did not appear, and neither did her granddaughter, actress Riley Keough, the main beneficiary of Lisa Marie Presley’s estate.

The court on Thursday considered a unilateral petition filed by Michael Lockwood, the father of Lisa Marie Presley’s minor daughters, twins Finley and Harper.

Lockwood’s attorney, Scott Rahn, said he is “ready, competent and willing to protect your interests.”

Attorneys for Priscilla Presley and Riley Keough did not challenge Lockwood’s appointment as their legal representative.

Judge Lynn Healy Scatuto said she will issue a written ruling on the matter.

Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only daughter, died in January of a heart attack at her Los Angeles home.

In court filings obtained by CNN, Priscilla Presley’s petition challenges a 2016 amendment to her daughter’s will, which said Lisa Marie Presley removed her mother and her former business manager, Barry Siegel, as co-trustees and replaced them with her children, Riley and Benjamin. Keefe. Benjamin Keefe later passed away in 2020.

The petition alleges that Priscilla Presley did not receive the change during her daughter’s lifetime, as she believed, and that Priscilla’s name was misspelled on the document. This amendment was never found or notarized and calls into question the authenticity of Lisa Marie Presley’s signature.

Priscilla Presley’s lawyers filed the petition days after Lisa Marie Presley was buried at Graceland, Elvis’ former home.

The next hearing to deal with the case has been adjourned to May 16.
