Lisa Marie Presley's twin daughters have been placed in the custody of child protective services in California in the wake of images of children being found on her ex-husband, Michael Lockwood's computer.
According to court documents obtained by People, Presley was "shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach" at the apparent discovery which has turned her life upside down.
According to the report, “Respondent [Lockwood] 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 [Presley]… Accordingly, Respondent’s request for spousal support must be denied by reason of his conduct alone.”
Lockwood's lawyer, Jeff Sturman seems to think the claims are dumbfounded and thinks Presley is not giving up all of the details.
“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 tells PEOPLE in a statement.
“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.”
“Mr. Lockwood is not going to publicly disclose very negative information about Ms. Presley to retaliate. Mr. Lockwood and his lawyers did not choose to litigate these personal matters in the press. Therefore, while Mr. Lockwood denies the truth of what Ms. Presley chose to put in the press, he has no further statement at this time.”
Presley says in the documents that there is a trial in March about the “the hundreds of inappropriate photos that I discovered that Respondent had taken as well as disturbing video footage and behavior. When I discovered the photos on Respondent’s computer, and viewed the videos, I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach. I had no idea that Respondent had taken these photos.”
At this stage, there is no clarity on why the children have been removed from Presley's custody and it does not appear as if she's going to open up about it.
It must be a really difficult time for her. The 49-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley had been staying in a treatment facility until the date of the filing.
Presley originally married Lockwood in 2006, but Presley called everything off last June after claiming Lockwood was using her for her finances.
