It all started on February 9, when Lisa Marie Presley filed papers in their custody battle case, claiming that she found disturbing photos and videos on her husband’s computer. “When I discovered the photos on [Lockwood’s] computer and viewed the videos, I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach”, Presley wrote in her complaint. “I had no idea that [Lockwood] had taken these photos.”
The court papers have been obtained by Daily Mail and published on February 17.
Lockwood, 55 and Presley, 49, parted ways on June 13 of last year. She filed for divorce on June 28, citing irreconcilable differences. Then, in August, she checked into a rehab facility in Los Angeles, to treat her addiction to prescription pills.
Since the divorce filing, Presley has been seeking full custody of their daughters and only monitored visitation from Lockwood.
Michael Lockwood is a musician, best known for performing with Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann and Lisa Marie Presley. He married Presley in January 2006. In response to her divorce filing, he filed a request for spousal support.
Lockwood was Presley’s fourth husband. She was previously married to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage. Aside from the twins, she has two other children: 27-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road actress Riley Keough and 24-year-old son Benjamin Keough.
