Elvis Presley‘s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, leveled shocking accusations against her estranged husband, Michael Lockwood, claiming the guitar player took inappropriate photos and videos of their twin daughters. Lisa Marie and Lockwood are in the midst of one of the nastiest high-profile divorces seen in awhile.
Lockwood, 55, has been accused by Lisa Marie, 49, of possessing “disturbing” photos and videos of their 8-year-old twin daughters she claims were discovered on his computer. The musician has denied all of the allegations.
Lisa Marie filed divorce from Lockwood in 2016, citing irreconcilable differences and then immediately checked into a $400,000 a month rehab facility. She was treated for three months and is now living with her mother, Priscilla Presley.
Presley is seeking custody of her daughters, while Lockwood is trying to get monthly spousal support from Presley, CBS News reports. Their assets will be divided through a post-nuptial agreement. After filing for divorce in August 2016, Presley checked into rehab for a prescription pill addiction, US Weekly reported at the time. h/t heavy
Lockwood and Presley were married on January 22, 2006, in Kyoto, Japan. The couple separated in June 2016, after 10 years of marriage, according to court documents. Lockwood played guitar with Presley in her band and has performed with Fiona Apple, Carly Simon, Bijou Phillips and others.
Lockwood’s lawyer, said in a statement the accusations against his client are “highly sensational” and “inaccurate.”
In court documents, Lockwood said Lisa Marie, “has placed more value on trying to damage my reputation than on the fact that her false statements may be brought to our daughters’ attention, thereby causing them to suffer public humiliation, embarrassment and emotional distress.”
Presley has previously been married three times, to Danny Keough from 1988 to 1994, to Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1996 and to Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004. She has two other children from her marriage to Keough, Riley, a 27-year-old actress, and Benjamin, 24.
Presley is battling Lockwood over his request to receive spousal support as part an eventual divorce agreement. Lockwood is asking the court to order Presley to pay him $40,000 a month, along with $100,000 in attorneys’ fees.
