Michael Lockwood fears Lisa Marie Presley may relapse

Michael Lockwood and Lisa Marie Presley — who were were married from 2006 until 2016 — share twin daughters Harper and Finley Lockwood. According to Us Weekly, they've been sharing custody of their daughters since they separated. However, following the death of Presley's eldest son, Benjamin Keough, Lockwood wants full custody. 

In a court filing obtained by The Blast in July 2020, Lockwood cited Presley's past struggles with addiction and her grief as factors in the effort, noting, "With all due sympathy and respect, this creates a new and unaddressed twofold problem: the safety of the children and the greater likelihood of [Presley] to relapse into drug and alcohol dependency." According to People, Lockwood is requesting that Presley no longer have primary custody.

A representative for Presley, Roger Widynowski, spoke about her grief following her son's death, saying that Presley "is entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated" in light of his passing "but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley [Keough]. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life," per Us Weekly.

According to The Blast, the divorce and custody trial is scheduled for Aug. 3, 2020.
