Title: Riley Keough Inherits Control of Lisa Marie Presley’s Estate and Graceland After Legal Battle with Priscilla Presley
In a surprising turn of events, Riley Keough, the granddaughter of the iconic Elvis Presley, has been named as the sole trustee of Lisa Marie Presley’s estate and the new owner of Graceland. The decision came after a lengthy legal battle with Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie’s mother.
Keough recently opened up about her complicated relationship with her grandmother, Priscilla, revealing that there had been much upheaval between them. However, she expressed her hope that now everything would be restored to how it was before.
The conflict between Keough and Priscilla began when the latter filled a petition disputing a 2016 amendment to Lisa Marie’s will. The amendment effectively removed Priscilla as co-trustee, leaving the responsibility solely in the hands of Keough.
The estrangement between Keough and Priscilla was highlighted when Keough mentioned that she last saw her mother at a party for Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis,” just a day after the Golden Globes. The tension between them was palpable, indicating a deep divide.
In a recent interview, Keough candidly spoke about losing her brother Benjamin and her mother’s subsequent death, and the impact it had on her emotional state and coping mechanisms. She expressed that the losses have been incredibly difficult and acknowledged the need to prioritize her mental and emotional well-being.
The cause of Lisa Marie Presley’s death was recently revealed to be a small bowel obstruction related to bariatric surgery. This news adds further grief to Keough’s already heavy plate.
Amidst all the turmoil, Keough is focusing on her well-being and her role as a mother, as she is undergoing holistic treatment for Lyme disease in Switzerland. Despite the challenges she is facing, she remains committed to providing the best life for herself and her daughter.
Riley Keough’s ascendancy as the sole trustee of Lisa Marie Presley’s estate and the owner of Graceland marks a new chapter in the Presley family’s legacy. As Keough confronts her new responsibilities, she hopes to find peace and restore the bonds that have been strained in recent years.
