Graceland addresses reports Riley Keough locked Priscilla Presley out of Elvis’ former home amid legal dispute
Graceland has responded to claims that Riley Keough had the locks changed to stop grandmother Priscilla Presley gaining access to Elvis’ former home amid their bitter legal dispute.
RadarOnline reported on Monday that the ex-wife of Elvis had been temporarily banned from the Graceland estate after Keough “changed the locks on the upstairs doors and archives”.
The US outlet stated that the Vice President of Archives & Exhibits at Graceland, Angie Marchese, Priscilla and her late daughter and Keough’s mother, Lisa Marie Presley, had been the only ones who had keys prior to a locksmith’s intervention.
A representative for Graceland has since denied this, telling Entertainment Tonight: “These reports are entirely untrue. No locks at Graceland have been changed since Lisa Marie’s passing.
Daisy and The Six actress, Keough, 33, and 77-year-old Priscilla have been engaged in a dispute over the property following the death of Lisa Marie at the age of 54 from a heart attack in January.
Lisa Marie was the only child of Elvis and sole heir of his sprawling mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.
Following her death, it was confirmed that Graceland, would go to her three daughters: Keough, and 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley.
Priscilla however filed a petition questioning the “authenticity and validity” of a 2016 amendment to Lisa Marie’s trust, which removed Priscilla as a co-trustee and put Keough in charge.
According to multiple sources, the two women are barely speaking, with a family insider saying that “they do not see eye to eye”.
