Lisa Marie Presley’s young twin daughters are in the custody of California child care services after shocking report of “disturbing” photos and video found on her estranged husband’s computer.
According to divorce papers obtained by the Daily Mail, Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, said that she discovered “hundreds of inappropriate photos” taken by her fourth husband Michael Lockwood, along with videos. She said that she was “shocked and horrified and sick to [her] stomach” by the discovery.
Presley and Lockwood married in 2006, and their twin daughters, Harper and Finley Lockwood, are eight years old.
Beverly Hills police raided Presley’s home, and found 80 devices belonging to Lockwood. The devices are reportedly pending analysis.
Presley says in the filing that a trial date has been set for March to determine the custodial future of the couple’s two daughters.
Previously, Lockwood’s visits with the twins had been supervised by two nannies provided by Presley, who accuses her estranged husband of misappropriating $1 million of her own money without her permission. She claims that nearly all of her $300 million wealth is gone.
Court papers say that Presley is aware that law enforcement in Tennessee is also conducting an investigation regarding the photos and videos she found.
The man, a 55-year-old guitarist, is currently contesting the nuptial agreement that both parties sign when they were married. Lockwood insists that Presley coerced him into signing the contract, which stipulates that neither of the two can claim the other’s assets in the event of a divorce.
Lockwood has not been charged or arrested. All of these allegations arise solely out of the divorce and custody filings by Presley.
Update from Crime Online Staff: The Daily Mail reports that Lisa Marie Presley estranged husband Michael Lockwood claims that she broke court rules by revealing the allegations of disturbing photos and video of children being on his computer.
“I am disgusted that (she) described unproven allegations about me…in a declaration that she filed in this court’s publicly accessible records,” Lockwood said in new filings.
“As I experienced during our more than 10-year marriage and as I believe this court will learn (Presley) has great difficulty being honest and she rarely, if ever, accepts personal responsibility for her own wrongdoing,” he added.
Lockwood also hinted at allegations against Presley, saying “allegations against both of us have not been unproven.”
