Priscilla Presley has strong case in dispute over control of daughter’s estate

LMPresleyLast week, Priscilla Presley challenged her daughter’s will, raising concerns of a family rift and messy legal battle over the estate. Priscilla released a statement denying a family rift. Legal experts have spoken out, saying that Priscilla has a strong claim.

Many factors have been cited, including the suggestion that Lisa Marie’s signature was forged and that her name is misspelled in the document. Additionally, the original trust set out the process for amendments, which include delivery of the amendment to be made to Priscilla, which was not carried out while Lisa Marie was alive.

At this time, it is unclear if Riley Keough, Lisa Marie’s eldest daughter, has an interest in serving as co-trustee on the estate with her grandmother.
