Will Riley Keough Inherit Her Mother Lisa Marie Presley’s Estate?
Riley’s mother, Lisa Marie Presley, died on January 12, 2023, after suffering from cardiac arrest, Life & Style confirmed at the time. She had attended the 80th Golden Globes alongside her mother, Priscilla Presley, and Elvis biopic actor Austin Butler just three days before.
Lisa Marie – who inherited Elvis’s Graceland as the sole beneficiary after Vernon Presley and Minnie Mae Presley’s deaths in 1979 and 1980 respectively –established a will in 1993. Priscilla and former business manager Barry Siegel were her cotrustees. In 2016, Lisa turned the titles over to her two children, Riley and Benjamin. Riley became the sole trustee after Ben’s death in 2020.
Life & Style confirmed that Priscilla filed a petition to contest Lisa Marie’s will two weeks after her January 22, 2023, memorial service.
According to the petition obtained by Life & Style, Priscilla questioned the “authenticity and validity” of the will.
Two months after Lisa Marie’s death, Priscilla and Riley were reportedly “not seeing eye to eye” about the will, a source told People.
The insider added that Riley hasn’t been on the same page as her grandmother ever since Lisa Marie’s divorce from ex-husband Michael Lockwood. Priscilla sided with her former son-in-law amid his custody battle with Lisa Marie over their twins Finley and Harper Lockwood.
“Riley was always on her mom’s side when it came to Michael,” the insider told the publication. “It bothered her that her grandmother and Michael flew to [Lisa’s] funeral together.”
Nevertheless, Priscilla denied that there was any feud between her and her granddaughter, and the family reached an agreement regarding the trust on May 16, 2023.
“My family has resolved all confusion as it relates to our plea to the court and request for document interpretation after my daughter Lisa Marie’s untimely passing,” Priscilla said in a statement on May 17, 2023, adding, “I want to make clear that there was never any lawsuit filed against my beloved granddaughter.”
Less than one month later, Riley filed to become the sole trustee in her late mother’s estate. She petitioned for the court to approve the settlement agreement between herself, Priscilla and Michael, with the terms noting that Riley would serve as the sole trustee of Lisa Marie’s estate. Priscilla would be the trustee of the sub trust for her son, Navarone Garibaldi, whom she shares with Marco Garibaldi. Marco would receive 1/9 pf the trust while the remaining 8/9 would be split among Lisa Marie’s children, Riley, Harper and Finley.
According to the court documents, Priscilla would also receive an undisclosed amount in a lump sum as a one-time payment. She was also removed from Lisa Marie’s estate on May 11, 2023.
On August 4, Riley was named the sole trustee of the estate, the appointment having been approved by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lynn Healey Scaduto.
