Presley family fans are in shock. On January 12, 2023, Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley's first and only daughter, died at just 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest . Now many are asking the question: What will become of her underage twins? This question is said to have triggered a bitter dispute over custody.
Lisa Marie Presley leaves behind not only her mother Priscilla Presley (77), but also three daughters: Riley Keough (33) and 14-year-old twin sisters Finley and Harper. The minor children could now become the focus of a custody battle. As sources have revealed to the Daily Mail, Michael Lockwood (61), the twins' biological father, is ready to go to court for his daughters. The guitarist currently has 40 percent custody of the twins, with Lisa Marie having the majority at 60 percent.
But as 'TMZ' reports, there are rumors that Lisa Marie's ex-husband Danny Keough (58) and their daughter Riley also want custody of the girls. Plus, grandma Priscilla Presley could also make claims.
Should a legal dispute arise, the judge will likely consider the twins' wishes. At 14, they are old enough to speak out on the subject.
