Plenty of stars and celebrities have paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley after the news of her death last Thursday. "Elvis" star Austin Butler honored the late singer, saying that he "was lucky enough to be near her bright light" after the release of the biopic about Presley's father.

Baz Luhrmann also remembered the singer with a post on Instagram in the days after her passing, while her ex-husband Nicolas Cage put out a statement to say how "devastating" the news was.

Another ex-husband of Presley's, Michael Lockwood, is the latest person to issue a statement regarding the news, telling People that he and his family are "reeling" after her death.

He said: "We are all reeling from the sudden passing of Lisa Marie Presley, the mother of my two beautiful twin daughters Harper and Finley. Nothing prepares us for such an unexpected tragedy. It is incomprehensible."

Lockwood added that his priority right now is to look after his daughters while they grieve their mother.

He said: "The most important thing to me at this time is to take care of my daughters, making sure they always feel safe and loved."

The guitarist went on to praise 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley, noting that they will carry the "family's legacy."

Lockwood continued: "Both of them have incredible spirit and they will carry our family's legacy on for the rest of their lives. Since they were born, Harper and Finley have brought me profound joy and I remain devoted to them. We ask for privacy at this incredibly difficult time."

Presley and Lockwood married in 2006 and Presley filed for divorce in 2016, alleging that the guitarist had inappropriate images of children on his computer. According to People, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations found no evidence of this and didn't charge Lockwood. The divorce was eventually finalized in 2021.
