Priscilla Presley is debunking rumors that her granddaughters were put into foster homes during their parents’ divorce. The actress, who was once married to Elvis Presley, took to social media to let her fans know that during the “confusion, commotion and concern” of her daughter Lisa Marie’s divorce, they shouldn’t worry about her twin daughters.
Her message came as rumors were beginning to swirl that Lisa Marie’s daughters Finley and Harper would be put in foster care. Lisa is divorcing her husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, and part of their court documents said the twins had been put into “protective custody.”
But Priscilla calmed everyone down on Sunday by revealing the twins are staying with her. “The girls have not been in foster care and never will be,” she wrote on Facebook.
Lisa Marie made headlines in June when she filed for a divorce from Lockwood, and again this month when she filed court documents claiming he had been investigated by police for owning “hundreds of inappropriate photos of children.”
Lockwood hasn’t been charged with anything yet, but Beverly Hills police have confirmed that they investigated him and seized “items” from his home. They’ve passed the case to authorities in Tennessee, who say they’re still investigating.
Lisa Marie is seeking full custody of her two daughters, with “monitored visitation” for Lockwood. This singer has been married four times, including to Michael Jackson and actor Nick Cage.
