Priscilla Presley Files To Take Control Of Lisa Marie Presley’s Estate

Priscilla Presley, the former wife of late singer Elvis Presley, has filed to take control of daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s estate, according to new court documents obtained by The Blast.

The American singer-songwriter passed away suddenly on January 12 after suffering a cardiac arrest in her home in Calabasas, California. She was rushed to West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles but passed away at the age of 54.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Lisa Marie Presley appointed her mother, Priscilla Presley, and former business manager Barry Siegel as co-Trustees of her estate in a 2010 restatement. On February 8, 2020, both Barry and Priscilla consented to serve as co-Trustees in another legal document.

After Lisa Marie Presley passed away, her mother discovered that another document existed that seemed to be an amendment to the 2010 Trust that she had previously consented to. This document was dated March 11, 2016.

This new legal document removed Priscilla and Barry as both current and future successors of the Trust. Instead, this new document named Lisa Marie's daughter, Riley Keough, and her son, Benjamin Keough, as successor co-Trustees of her estate. Sadly, her son Benjamin took his own life in July 2020 and was buried at Graceland in Tennessee, where Lisa Marie Presley was also laid to rest.

Priscilla Presley notes in the court papers, obtained by The Blast, that there are "many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity of the Purported 2016 Amendment." One of these issues is that this amendment was allegedly never delivered to Priscilla while Lisa Marie Presley was alive, which was required by the terms of the original trust.

The date of the 2016 Purported Trust Amendment was also added via PDF on March 14, which raises questions about when the document was actually created. The 2016 Amendment, which was allegedly signed by Lisa Marie Presley, spelled her mother's name wrong, adding another layer of suspicion to this case.

There are also no provisions listed in the Purported 2016 Amendment on the signature page. Priscilla states that Lisa Marie Presley's signature "appears inconsistent with her usual and customary signature." To top things off, she noted that the Purported 2016 Amendment was neither witnessed nor notarized.

Based on this information, Priscilla contends that "the Purported 2016 Amendment is an invalid modification of the restated 2010 trust and that the restated 2010 trust is the authoritative and controlling document." As such, she is asking a court to order that the 2016 Purported Amendment is invalid. She wants them to confirm and validate the initial 2010 trust that would put her back in charge of her daughter's estate.

The Blast has also learned the Presley Charitable Foundation is a contingent beneficiary of the Trust and Michael Lockwood, the father of Lisa Marie Presley’s twins Finley and Harper, will receive notice.

In a touching Twitter tribute, Priscilla wrote, “Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words. It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference.”

“To YOU, I’m truly overwhelmed with your words, your prayers, your love and your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart in trying to help me get through this loss,” she continued. “Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is.”

The estate of late singer Michael Jackson also paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley after her tragic passing. They were only married for two years and went their separate ways in 1996.

In a short statement made to The Blast, John Branca and John McClain from the estate of Michael Jackson wrote, “We are saddened by the sudden tragic loss of Michael’s former wife, Lisa Marie Presley. Michael cherished the special bond they enjoyed as apparent in the official video for ‘You Are Not Alone’, and was comforted by Lisa Marie’s generous love, concern and care during their times together.“

Elvis's estate was in shambles when he died. Say what you will about Priscilla, but she's the one who steered it so that there was any money at all for Lisa Marie to inherit in the first place.

[quote]Due to his years of excessive spending and being bilked by his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis’ estate was worth $5 million at the time of his death, with just $1 million dedicated to Lisa Marie before the deaths of Vernon and Minnie Mae. However, by the time Lisa Marie inherited Elvis’ whole estate in 1993, the amount had grown to $100 million, thanks to the stewardship of Priscilla.

Lisa Marie pissed away most of the money. It's worth some comparatively paltry amount.

That 2016 document does sound fishy. Priscilla may not have been the best mother, but it sounds like she's financially smart.

Riley is now 33 or so. That should be old enough to make some decisions. If she does have a good relationship with Priscilla, then she may want Priscilla to be trustee and make decisions.

R12, sounds like Priscilla was a trustee or something close. Trustees do get paid. I think a trustee can also get paid according to a percentage.

When my mom died, I was her trustee. The CPA said that I could pay myself 10% or something like that. I have 3 siblings (father predeceased mom) and I didn't want to take that much out of the estate.

I agree, R15. Part of the blow-up in value has to do with Elvis being dead. People become interested in the music, the image, Graceland.

I think Michael Jackson's estate may be in better shape, now, than when MJ was alive. I wonder who's in charge, there, though. Katherine Jackson (Michael's mother) is now 92 years old. She seems the most even-keeled of the family, but being 92 has to have an impact on how much you can do.

Priscilla probably could have challenged LM when she was alive, while Lisa was high and pissing money away. If she wanted the money that bad she would have done it. She doesn't want the weird ass hat wearing ex son in law to get control of it, since he's now the primary parent of the twins. Riley may want and need her grandmas help.

Waaaaait a minute. I’ve always always disliked Lockwood, his taste in hats *disturbs* me. But in fairness to him, he married a regular hairdresser. They live very normal, down to earth lives from what we can see (though he continues with the hats!). All this to say, the rest of the family is just as distasteful as Lockwood, right? The *only* likable one is Riley, not sure about the twins. They’re all playing parts in a large, very demented freak show. So maybe Lockwood isn’t that bad? I mean, he got 50% custody or close to it after LMP accused him of vile things, maybe he isn’t as horrible as he seems, and the rest of them are actually worse?

r17 see the OP's post. Branca and McClain are top attorneys and they've managed MJ's estate really well, its worth 100s of millions now. They've also successfully kept it out of the hands of his numerous greedy relatives, keeping the income available for his kids and his mother's upkeep (those were his named beneficiaries).

Re Priscilla: Riley is a new mother and a busy actress, she may not want to have much to do with the day-to-day management of Graceland. Priscilla has previous experience with that, to good end.

by Anonymousreply 28January 28, 2023 3:54 AM

When Elvis died, his father Vernon inherited responsibility for managing Elvis Presley’s affairs until Lisa Marie came of age. When Vernon approached the end of his life, he agonized over who should take over his role. Lisa Marie was still not of age. Vernon was not a fan of Priscilla, nor she of him. Still in the end, he selected Priscilla for the job for the simple reason that he felt no one else would protect his granddaughter’s interests as much as her mother. And she did. From all accounts, Lisa Marie made a mess of things. It’s hard to imagine that at age 77, Priscilla wants to start all over and try to rebuild the estate. She probably won’t have much of a choice, she will want to look out for her two youngest grandchildren.

R14 it’s more like 2% to 4% a year but it’s income to you so you pay high taxes on it. Most prefer nothing…or a distribution. With a distribution you would still report it but pay less tax than you would with the fee. Of course every single trust is different and they do not have to go through probate so they are often a web / big mess.

If PP wins control of her daughter's estate, then all the debt LMP had goes to Priscilla. At 77, she will be responsible to pay off the debtors. They will want their money up front and probably won't be nice working on a deferred payment plan with her, especially once they know the finances of the estate and how much debt is included.

This won't be pretty.

I'm guessing the opposite (I think you mean creditors, not debtors). They weren't getting any repayment from LMP. but they might want to give Priscilla time to straighten things out and get on a payment plan.

The tabloids today are crowing (TMZ did the digging?) that LM took out two large insurance policies shortly before she died, totaling north of $30 million. That's plenty to pay off her debts, and leave a nest egg behind for her daughters.

They also claim that she was back on opioids and was taking Wegovy or a similar weight loss drug in the months leading up to her death. Said to have lost 20 to 30 lbs. Those drugs are known for potential cardiac side effects.

Priscilla Presley contesting Lisa Marie Presley’s will is a “money grab,” a friend of the late singer-songwriter tells Page Six exclusively.

“It’s strictly a money grab,” our source claims. “She had no relationship with Priscilla, [her ex-husband] Michael Lockwood or her half-brother [Navarone Garibaldi].”

Our source says that Lockwood, who had an acrimonious divorce from Lisa Marie, was not actually invited to his ex-wife’s memorial despite attending.

A second source tells us that Lockwood was not mentioned during the Jan. 22 service at all — but another one of Lisa Marie’s ex-husbands, Danny Keough, was.

Priscilla, Lockwood and Garibaldi are being represented by the same publicist, Caroline Galloway, in the bid to toss the will in question.

Galloway and an attorney for Priscilla didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.

Cilla's son Navarone was just on IG Live (per usual), and he was selling art canvases (allegedly his own photography) right off his apartment wall. He'd sign them for free, and he said his mum would sign them for "a little extra money." Shockingly, none of the photography was of Graceland. Mostly flowers and marina scenes.

I guess the decent family member is Riley.

Elvis should have married Ann-Margret.

Elvis should never have married. Along with 75% of the straight male population. Besides convenient sex and a second income. What's the benefit?

Is anyone kinda surprised at how quickly Riley and Priscilla have seemingly moved on? Riley is promoting Daisy Jones smiling in every interview and Priscilla is going back to doing Q&A’s and promoting her Agent Elvis Netflix show.

Convenient sex and a second income, R107.

R111 It’s almost like they anticipated her death. Sad.

Priscilla was done mourning before her daughter was buried. There relationship ended years ago.

I guess I was under the false impression they were close. It's sad to see that Lisa Marie was so fucked up. I think hours or days later, Priscilla was posting on Instagram as if nothing happened. It was weird.

Riley was close to Lisa. She’s really strong, losing her brother and mother within years but still smiling and going on with life.

Riley has a lot to live for R115. She's happily married and has a baby.

We some are on this earth longer than others, the fact remains, we are all only here temporarily. Lisa's time here was short, but she is now home with the Lord.

This bitch is so beautiful, I've had the hots for her since Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult, which I saw in 1994 (I was seven). Too bad she is a fucking lunatic psycho from hell.

[quote] Riley Keough Reportedly Locked Priscilla Presley Out of Graceland

Actress Riley Keough, granddaughter of Elvis Presley, has reportedly locked her grandmother, Priscilla Presley, out of the iconic singer’s historic Graceland estate. Per The Daily Mail, Keough’s decision comes after Priscilla contested an amendment to her late daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s will.

Lisa Marie passed away in January at age 54 after suffering from suspected cardiac arrest. Her death came just two days after the Golden Globes, where she and Priscilla appeared together in support of the film Elvis. (Actor Austin Butler, whose heavily accented portrayal of The King became the stuff of meme legend, lost the Academy Award for Best Actor to Brendan Fraser on Sunday night.)

At the time of Lisa Marie’s death, she still owed millions of dollars to the IRS, but she’d also retained $35 million in life insurance policies, of which her 14-year-old twin daughters were named the beneficiaries and Keough was named the trustee, replacing Priscilla.

Now, The Daily Mail says a source told them that because Priscilla has moved to challenge the validity of her daughter’s will, which essentially cut her out of a trust worth a fortune, Keough has “changed the locks on the upstairs doors and archives” to prevent Priscilla from accessing the Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.

Just last week, a Presley family source told People that Keough and her grandmother “do not see eye to eye.” The outlet also reported that Lisa Marie’s trust includes the Graceland mansion and a 15 percent stake in Elvis Presley Enterprises, all of which brought in roughly $110 million in 2022.

The Daily Beast has reached out to Keough and Presley for comment.

Riley's a cunt!

by Anonymousreply 127March 14, 2023 1:19 AM

I don't think LMP was easy to raise. When she was with Elvis (after the divorce), she would tell staff members, "I'm going to have you fired," if she didn't get her way. Priscilla was comparatively strict.

Priscilla should give up on trying to control the estate, though.

Riley is just TCB (Taking Care of Business), making appearances, doing her job. I don't see anything wrong with that. Not everybody tells the world about their miseries.

Riley obviously hates Priscilla and is a money grabbing loon.

by Anonymousreply 129March 15, 2023 3:40 AM

I don't think Priscilla has a lot of maternal instinct. She was upset when she became pregnant with Lisa and thought about having an abortion. Priscilla didn't want to get fat so she went on a diet, eating only apples and hard boiled eggs. She actually bragged that she lost weight during her pregnancy. She wasn't around much during Lisa's early years. In her book she said that when they were getting ready for family photos Lisa hid behind her nanny. She didn't know who Priscilla was.

I would trust Priscilla more than the deadbeat ex Lisa had twins with.

Besides it's Priscilla. She was actually with Elvis, lived with him etc. She made Graceland into a thing. If I was Riley I would want her in control growing the business in her last remaining years not fighting.

I doubt Priscilla wants to put any work into growing Gracel

by Anonymousreply 132March 15, 2023 4:35 AM

Sorry about above. Priscilla wasn't doing much work the last few years with Graceland anyway. She was getting a nice 900,000 dollar check every year and doing nothing to earn it. I believe that's why Lisa wanted her off the trust.

Priscilla is responsible for dragging young Lisa Marie into Scientology. I think if LM had had access to normal therapists after her father died, and gone to rehabs that weren't affiliated with Co$, then her life could have been completely different. Not only that, but Priscilla brought men around who preyed on her daughter. Priscilla may be more sensible with money, but she failed LM as a parent. Period.

That Priscilla is one well-pickled egg, I'll tell you what.

Was LMP still a Scientologist when she died?
