A Battle Ensues Between Lisa Marie’s Mom & Daughter Following Her January 12th Death

Shortly after Lisa Marie Presley died on January 12 at the age of 54, lawyers for her mother, Priscilla, filed a petition questioning the “authenticity and validity” of an amendment made to her living trust in 2016. This amendment gave Lisa Marie’s trust to her three daughters, Riley Keough and Harper and Finley Lockwood.

Priscilla and her former business manager Barry Siegel were previously listed as co-trustees in Lisa Marie’s living will. Priscilla discovered the 2016 amendment after Lisa Maries death this year, and realized she was no longer a trustee.

The petition Priscilla’s lawyers filed alleged there were “many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity” of the 2016 amendment. As PEOPLE reported:

“…it was never given to Priscilla while Lisa Marie was alive ‘as required by the express terms of the Trust,’ that Lisa Marie’s signature was ‘inconsistent’ with her usual signature, and that there was no witness or notarization.”

Rumors swirled that Priscilla and her eldest granddaughter, Riley Keough, were estranged due to the dispute over the trust. Although Priscilla dismissed these rumors.
