THE ex-husband of Lisa Marie Presley will potentially get full custody of their twin daughters after the star’s death.
It’s been over a week since Presley died on January 12 after suffering from cardiac arrest, leaving behind her 14-year-old daughters Finley and Harper.
Michael Lockwood, Presley’s fourth husband, has a good chance of getting the twins after the girls made it clear that they want to live full-time with their father, sources told TMZ.
Sources say that the twins have already been living with Lockwood since their mother’s death and that they are comfortable with their new arrangement.
There have been rumors that Danny Keough, Presley’s second husband, might want custody of the twins.
He moved into Presley’s home to support her after their son Benjamin took his life over two years ago.
However, according to California law, Keough wouldn’t be in the position to get custody of the girls.
Lockwood already had joint custody of the twins with Presley. He would get full custody unless he was found unfit to be a parent to the twins.
But a judge has already found him fit enough for joint custody.
“It’ll be a cold day in hell before he gives up custody of those children,” a source connected to Lockwood told the outlet.
The only child of rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley died at her home in Calabasas, California at 54 years old.
Paramedics tried to revive the singer and performed CPR on her after she was found unresponsive.
Keough reportedly was the one to discover her in her bedroom.
She was rushed to hospital before she died.
Presley and Lockwood married in 2006, but after 10 years, the lovebirds entered an ugly divorce and custody battle.
In 2016, Presley filed for divorce, claiming she found hundreds of images of child pornography on Lockwood’s computer.
Lockwood denied the allegations, and after five years, the couple’s divorce was finalized in 2021.
During the painstaking divorce, Presley admitted to abusing cocaine, opioids, painkillers, and alcohol.
“The last three years I… had to go to rehab several times,” she said in 2017, later putting the exact number at somewhere between three and five stints in a Mexican treatment facility.
“I was a mess. I couldn’t stop.”
Presley said her addiction peaked as their marriage ended in 2016.
“The last year of our marriage, I was abusing cocaine terribly,” she said in court documents.
