Soap2day – Priscilla Presley asked that her family's legacy not be "disrespected." After their daughter Lisa Marie Presley died last month, the 77-year-old actress, who was married to the late music legend Elvis Presley, who died of a heart attack at age 27 in 1977, decided to fight an amendment to the will. During the fight, she insisted that she "loved" the "Hound Dog" rocker "very much" and shut down anyone who might "think differently."
"I loved Elvis a lot, and he loved me a lot, too. Lisa is the result of how much we love each other. If someone else thought differently, it would be a disgrace to the family name and disrespectful to what Elvis left behind ""E! News," she said.
Last month, the daughter of former "Dallas" star Priscilla Presley died of a heart attack at the age of 54. Now, Priscilla is fighting an amendment to Lisa Marie's will that took her and the singer's former business manager Barry Siegel out of charge of her trust and put her eldest children, Riley Keough, 33, and Benjamin, who killed himself in 2020 at the age of 27, in charge instead. Her statement comes just a day after a
Benny Roshan, a probate, trusts, and estates litigation lawyer in Los Angeles, said, "The law basically says to follow whatever is in the document, and the document says this is what you have to do. So if the court is looking at it and those procedures were not followed, Priscilla has a good case to argue that this new document that basically replaces her is not valid."
"That's a good point, even if it's never taken into account. Cases like this depend on whether or not Priscilla's position is shared by other interested parties and family members. If no one says anything against it, it could be done in just a few months. If someone disagrees with her position and takes the opposite side, like saying that the 2016 amendment is legal, the court case could last for years."
