Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie Presley passed away in January. Shortly thereafter, there was an inheritance dispute between her mother Priscilla and her granddaughter Riley Keough. Both parties have now reached an agreement.
The dispute over the inheritance of Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie Presley has come to an end. Her mother’s attorney, Priscilla Presley, said Tuesday in a Los Angeles court that a settlement had been reached with Lisa Marie’s daughter, Riley Keough. “The families are happy,” said attorney Ronson Shamoun, without giving details of the agreement. Keough’s attorney confirmed the settlement.
Elvis Presley’s only daughter, Lisa Marie, died of cardiac arrest on January 12 at the age of 54. Shortly thereafter, Priscilla Presley went to court to have her deletion from her daughter’s will invalidated.
Lisa Marie Presley changed her will in 2016
According to court documents, in 2010 Lisa Marie registered her mother as one of the custodians of her immense fortune. In 2016, however, Lisa Marie apparently changed her mind and decreed that in the event of her death, her children Riley and Benjamin Keough would inherit. Benjamin Keough took his own life in 2020 at the age of 27.
Priscilla Presley didn’t discover the will altering until after her daughter’s death, according to her attorney. The now 77-year-old Elvis widow applied to the court for the “alleged supplementary declaration” to be declared invalid. One reason she gave was that she had not been informed of the change while her daughter was alive. There were also technical defects.
