Lisa Marie Presley’s ex-husband Michael Lockwood is reportedly getting full custody of the couple’s twins.
The 61-year-old father of Finley and Harper, 14, who were left motherless when Lisa Marie Presley died of cardiac arrest at age 54 on Jan. 12, had been married to the singer for ten years after she tied the knot in 2006.
Despite rumors of a possible custody battle between Lockwood and Presley’s other ex-husband, Danny Keough, TMZ reports that the twins will be living with their father full-time.
Sources close to the family told the outlet that Finley and Harper have been living with their father since the tragic news about their mother came to light, and that they are “comfortable” with the living situation.
Presley had 60 percent custody of the twins at the time of her death. Under California law, Lockwood would normally receive full custody unless a judge determines he is not an eligible parent.
TMZ previously reported that Keough, the father of Presley’s first two children, was likely to make a bid for custody after living with Presley and the twins at the time of her death.
The outlet reported that Keough saw himself as the girls’ stepfather.
The exhaust added fuel to the fire, adding that Keough and Lockwood don’t get along — in part because of all the bad blood fueled during Lockwood and Presley’s nasty five-year divorce battle.
However, the outlet is now reporting that since Lockwood has reportedly been found fit to have full custody, Keough cannot make an attempt to get custody.
It was recently revealed that Graceland, the iconic sprawling estate that once belonged to rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, is going to Riley, Harper and Finley.
The Graceland mansion has always been meaningful to Lisa Marie Presley and her family. It was her childhood home, and – more precisely – it was where her father died at the age of 42.
Last week, the Presley family announced that a public memorial for Lisa Marie Presley will be held at the property on January 22.
