Graceland denies that Priscilla Presley was locked out
Graceland is taking pictures down rumors that Riley Keough modified the locks on Elvis’ well-known former dwelling.
This morning, RadarOnline reported on allegations that Priscilla Presley, ex-wife of Elvis Presley, had been briefly banned from the property amid authorized battles over Lisa Marie Presley’s will.
The report acknowledged that Keough, Lisa Marie Presley’s eldest daughter and sole executor of her property, lately stopped by the Memphis mansion and adjusted the locks on the upstairs doorways and archives. Graceland has been open to the general public since 1982, however the second flooring has remained non-public and sealed off to guests, aside from members of the Presley household.
Graceland reps spoke with Entertainment Tonight and denied the rumors.
“These reports are entirely untrue,” the assertion learn. “No locks at Graceland have been changed since Lisa Marie’s passing.”
Lisa Marie Presley, who was the one baby of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, died in January after struggling cardiac arrest. She had helped to supervise her father’s property, a job that has now been handed down the household tree.
In 2016, Lisa Marie Presley amended her will, naming her two eldest kids, Riley Keough and son Benjamin Keough, as co-executors. But Benjamin died by suicide in 2020, which implies Riley is now the only executor of Lisa Marie Presley’s property, which incorporates the 17,552-square-foot Graceland mansion and a 15% stake in Elvis Presley Enterprises.
This is the place issues get all shook up.
Weeks after Lisa Marie Presley’s loss of life, her mom (and Keough’s grandmother), Priscilla Presley, requested a decide to invalidate the 2016 modification that changed Presley and Barry Siegel (Lisa Marie’s former supervisor) as co-trustees of the belief with Riley and Benjamin Keough, suggesting her daughter’s signature may have been cast.
And final week, Lisa Marie Presley’s ex-partner, guitarist and music producer Michael Lockwood, filed to be appointed the guardian advert litem (a court-appointed consultant of a kid’s finest pursuits) of their 14-year-old twin daughters, Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood and Finley Aaron Love Lockwood, amid the household’s belief fiasco.
Although Keough has been tight-lipped concerning the dispute, Priscilla Presley is insisting there’s no household riff.
“I loved Elvis very much as he loved me. Lisa is a result of our love. For anyone to think anything differently would be a travesty of the family legacy and would be disrespectful of what Elvis left behind in his life,” Priscilla Presley, 77, stated in a press release to The Times.
“Please allow us the time we need to work together and sort this out. Please ignore ‘the noise,’” she added. “As I have always been there for Elvis’ legacy, our family and the fans, I will continue to forge a pathway forward with respect, honesty, dignity, integrity and love.”
