Lisa Marie Presley and Mom Priscilla Presley’s Ups and Downs Through the Years: Scientology, Drug Addiction and More

Thick as thieves. Lisa Marie Presley had a close relationship with her mother, Priscilla Presley, before her death in January 2023 — but the twosome faced their fair share of ups and downs.

“My mom was really, really strict with me,” Lisa Marie said during a 2013 appearance on The Talk. “Constrictive. I realized that is not going to work very well because it made us not get close for a very long time. We are now very close, but when I was younger, it was, like, difficult to have a relationship with somebody that’s got you … around the neck all the time.”

Priscilla and Lisa Marie’s father, Elvis Presley, tied the knot in May 1967 and welcomed their daughter less than a year later. After the twosome called it quits in 1973, they took turns sharing custody of their only child.

While Lisa Marie often called her father, who died in 1977 at the age of 42, “very adoring” and “sweet,” she explained that her mother was “level-headed” and would often have “to undo whatever was done if I went to Graceland and spent two weeks being a tyrant.”

After the Tennessee native began abusing drugs at the age of 13 following her father’s death, Priscilla checked Lisa Marie into The Castle, a Scientology center in Hollywood. Although the two continued to butt heads throughout the “Now What” singer’s teens and early ’20s, their dynamic took a turn when Lisa Marie filed for divorce from fourth husband Michael Lockwood in 2016.

Following their split, the pair, who tied the knot in 2006, entered a messy custody battle after a report surfaced that the exes’ twin daughters, Finley and Harper, were in protective care after “disturbing” photos of children were allegedly found on the guitarist’s computer.

Lisa Marie, for her part, claimed in court documents obtained in February 2017 that she was “shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach” when she discovered the images. Lockwood’s lawyer denied the allegations in a statement to Us Weekly at the time, calling her claims “highly sensational, inaccurate and unproven.”
