Priscilla Presley contests Lisa Marie Presley’s will, claims ‘invalid’ signature

LMPresleyPriscilla Presely filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court late last week challenging the "purported 2016 amendment" to Lisa Marie Presley's will. She is claiming that the signature appears inconsistent with Lisa Marie's customary signature and was not properly notarized. The amendment ousted Priscilla as trustee of her daughter's estate in favor of Lisa Marie's eldest daughter, Riley Keough.

According to court documents, Priscilla and Lisa Marie's former business manager, Barry Siegel, were named co-trustees of the estate in 1993. Priscilla was unaware of the amendment made in 2016 until after her daughter's death earlier this month.

Lisa Marie previously claimed Siegel left her in "financial ruin" and Siegel countersued for $800,000 in unpaid bills.
