Divorce can be extremely difficult when children are involved. If you’re a public figure, it’s even worse. Lisa Marie Presley’s estranged husband, Michael Lockwood, made things difficult when it came to participating in Elvis’ big birthday celebration. He forbade his 11-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, from traveling to the big event. Based on the custody agreement he has with Lisa Marie, both parents need to sign off on travel like this.
Lisa Marie, rightfully, wasn’t very happy about this turn of events. The day before the celebration was set to happen, her legal team at Brot, Gross, Fishbein tried to put together emergency documents that would allow the kids to attend. But since the situation wasn’t necessarily an “emergency,” the judge dismissed the case.
Lisa Marie is the only child of Elvis and actress Priscilla Presley. That means her children are Elvis’ only grandchildren. Aside from the twins, she also has a son and daughter with ex Danny Keough. Both are adults.
The move may seem cold, but it’s important to figure out why Michael wouldn’t want the kids there.
