The daughter of the late King of Rock And Roll, Elvis Presley, is not having a good year so far.
Lisa Marie Presley’s 8-year old twin daughters were taken and put into the custody of child protective services after new court documents filed by Presley’s legal team revealed shocking allegations against her estranged husband.
According to the documents, musician Michael Lockwood, allegedly had indecent photos of children on his computer. The couple have been involved in an ongoing divorce.
Presley said she was “shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach” at the alleged discovery.
According to the filing, “Respondent was discovered to have hundreds of inappropriate photos of children and is facing allegation of sexual abuse and neglect. While Respondent has yet to be convicted of crimes related to his possession of these photos, that he possessed them is documented evidence of conduct that has destroyed the mental or emotional calm of Petitioner … Accordingly, Respondent’s request for spousal support must be denied by reason of his conduct alone.”
Lockwood’s lawyer, Jeff Sturman, rejects the claims and told PEOPLE, “Mr. Lockwood and his lawyers believe that it is very unfortunate and inappropriate that Ms. Presley chose to file a one-sided, inaccurate version of the facts in the Family Law Court’s publicly accessible files.”
He went on to say, “Ms. Presley and her lawyers undoubtedly knew that their highly sensational, inaccurate and unproven claims would be of great interest to the media, which would disseminate Ms. Presley’s inaccurate story as a result. To make matters worse, Ms. Presley failed to disclose very important information in the papers she filed in the Family Law Court and the things she failed to disclose are directly related to her inflammatory claims against Mr. Lockwood.”
