Elvis Presley’s grandchildren have been taken into care after their mother, Lisa Marie Presley, allegedly found indecent photos of children on their father’s computer.
The 49-year-old singer and actress, who is Elvis’ and Priscilla Presley’s only child, has claimed in documents submitted to court that she found inappropriate images of youngsters on Michael Lockwood’s computer.
His devices have reportedly been handed over to the police whilst their twin daughters, Finley and Harper, pictured with the couple below, have reportedly been taken into the custody of California’s Department of Children and Family Services.
According to the legal papers seen by the Daily Mail newspaper, Lisa stated that what she found “shocked and horrified” her.
She said: “I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach. My understanding is that Tennessee law enforcement is also conducting an investigation related to the photos and videos that I discovered. I have no idea what else may be on those devices and fear that there are more and worse images and evidence in these un-analysed devices.”
The 49-year-old singer and actress – who is the only child of Elvis and his ex-wife Priscilla Presley – wed Michael, 55, in 2006 but their relationship hit the rocks when she discovered the guitarist and producer had racked up debts on her credit cards and the couple filed for divorce in June 2016.
Lisa also has two grown up children, a 27-year-old daughter, Riley Keough, and a 24-year-old son, Benjamin Keough with her first husband Danny Keough and in the paper work submitted to court she stated her financial state had forced her to move in with Riley and she now owes 7.3 million dollars in income tax from the period of time that she and Michael lived in Britain
She said: “Approximately a year ago I discovered that he had spent over a million dollars of my separate property funds without my consent. When I confronted him, he acknowledged that he had spent the amount on my credit cards.
“I discontinued his access to my credit card at that time. Soon thereafter, I learned that my former business managers had misused my funds. While I am still investigating, I understand that there was extreme misappropriation.”
A trial will take place in March to determine Finley and Harper’s welfare.
