Lisa Marie Presley’s twins were so close to their mum when she was here, and they do have a striking resemblance to her and their grandad, Elvis Presley. They loved living with their mother and weren’t very excited about staying away from her during the period their parents fought for custody over them. It is understandable how much grief they must be going through. However, that doesn’t say they aren’t close to their father.
The twins served as their father’s grooms women when he wedded his new wife, Stephanie Hobgood, a celebrity hairstylist. They also recently signed a petition permitting their father to stand in for them as a spokesman in court during the ongoing Trust feud dragging between Priscilla Presley, Lisa’s mum, and their eldest sister Riley.

Though Lisa died of cardiac arrest, we can’t say for sure that she was from grief. This is because she stated in honor of National Grief Awareness Day, that she was willing to move on and stay strong for her girls despite her grief.
Feud Over Lisa Marie Presley’s Will
While Lisa Marie Presley’s twins grieve over the loss of their mother, their grandma has made claim over Lisa Marie Presley’s Trust. According to Lisa’s will which has been reported to have been revised by Lisa herself, she excluded her mother.
Priscilla Presley however, claims that the revision is false. However, in March 2023, multiple sources told PEOPLE that Priscilla Presley and Lisa weren’t on talking terms. Hence, Lisa willed her Trust which includes Elvis’ Graceland property and 15% ownership of Elvis’ estate to her children. She also gave her two life insurance policies, one for $25 million and another for $10 million, to her children, Riley, Finley, and Harper Lockwood, who meant the world to her.
