Priscilla Presley opposes Lisa Marie Presley's will.
The 77-year-old businesswoman asked the Los Angeles County Superior Court to determine the "authenticity and validity" of her late daughter's last will.
She and business manager Barry Siegel were the sole trustees of Lisa Marie Presley's estate.
However, their names have been changed to those of his grandchildren Riley and Benjamin Keough.
As relayed by the
Los Angeles Times
, the grandmother questions the authenticity of this amendment dating from 2016 and claims that it is “invalid”.
She adds that her name is misspelled and that the signature “seems incompatible with the usual and customary one of [Lisa Marie Presley].
Alone in command
Priscilla Presley also claimed that she was never informed of these changes “as expressly required by the terms of the trust”.
Moreover, it notes that this new clause has never been attested and notarized.
The King's only daughter died on January 12 at the age of 54 following a heart attack.
She had four children, Benjamin Keough, who took his own life in 2020 aged 27, Riley Keough, 33, and 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood.
For the moment, Riley Keough, who therefore finds himself the sole manager of Elvis Presley's heritage, has not yet reacted to Priscilla Presley's legal action.
