Priscilla Presley (77) disputes the authenticity and validity of the late Lisa Marie Presley’s will. According to her, the date on the document is suspicious, her name is misspelled, and Lisa Marie’s signature “looks different than her usual signature.” Priscilla has now officially appealed her daughter’s will and is asking the judge to remove Lisa Marie Presley as trustee of the fund that manages her late ex-husband Elvis Presley’s estate.
Priscilla submitted court documents to Page Six for review last Thursday. She asks the judge to determine the validity of Lisa Marie’s will. In it, Lisa Marie’s eldest daughter, Riley Keough, and her late son, Benjamin Keough, are named as successors. Lisa Marie’s former chief executive Barry Siegel was removed from the fund along with Priscilla. As a result, Riley is the only one entitled to Lisa Marie’s estate after Benjamin Keough committed suicide in 2020.
In the lawsuit, Priscilla alleges that she and Siegel first became part of the fund on January 29, 1993 and that Lisa Marie reinstated it in her January 27, 2010 amendment. However, when her daughter died from cardiac arrest on January 12, 2023, she claimed to have found a new change. The new document is said to be dated March 11, 2016. But she says the date on the document is suspicious, her name was misspelled and Lisa Marie’s signature looks “different from her usual signature”. Additionally, Priscilla also claims that the document was never notarized and was not given to her by Lisa Marie while she was alive, as detailed in the terms of their 2010 agreement.
If the judge grants Priscilla’s motion to remove Lisa Marie Presley as trustee of the fund, she would be the sole trustee and free to do as she pleases with the remaining money. That’s because Lisa Marie Presley severed all ties with Barry Siegel before she died. In 2018, she even filed a lawsuit against him, accusing him of negligence and misusing Elvis’ legacy.
