Lisa Marie Presley is going to have to pay through the nose in order to finalize the divorce from her estranged husband Michael Lockwood, who she accused last month of possessing child pornography on his computer — but police declined to file charges.
The Wrap obtained court papers that show Presley was ordered to pay $10,000 a month to Lockwood to cover his legal fees for their less-than-amicable divorce, beginning next week and continuing for five months.
Presley and Lockwood have eight-year-old twins together; according to The Wrap, Presley will not have to pay spousal support for now, thanks to a spousal support waiver in their pre-nuptial agreement. But if a court determines that the waiver is invalid, Presley will be retroactively responsible for support.
Lockwood is Presley’s fourth husband. They were married for 10 years before separating in 2016. She was previously, and famously, married to Michael Jackson for two years in the mid-1990s. Lockwood is a studio and tour guitarist who has worked with a number of high-profile acts, including Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann.
In February, the Daily Mail obtained divorce paper filed by Presley, claiming to have found “hundreds of inappropriate photos” and videos of children on his electronic devices. But last week, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told The Wrap that Lockwood was no longer being investigated and was not expected to face any charges.
“We have not been able to determine a crime occurred in Tennessee,” a TBI spokesperson said.
