Priscilla Presley Confirms She’s Caring for Daughter Lisa Marie’s 8-Year-Old Twin Girls Amid Divorce Battle

Lisa Marie Presley‘s mother, Priscilla, has confirmed she is caring for the star’s young children as the kids’ father faces explosive allegations of child abuse.

The 71-year-old recently took to Facebook to share sweet photos of Presley’s 8-year-old twin girls, Finley and Harper Lockwood — and to make it clear that the children are in her custody.

“There is Lots of confusion, commotion and concern from all the talk circulating,” Priscilla wrote in one post. “Let me put this to rest … the girls have not been in foster care and never will be. The girls have been with me and will be until all this is sorted out.”

The announcement comes as the twins’ father — and Presley’s estranged husband — Michael Lockwood, 55, faces accusations of child abuse and neglect.

Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, made the abuse accusations in court papers filed earlier this month in which she claimed that Lockwood is the subject of criminal investigations involving hundreds of inappropriate photos of children that authorities found on his electronic devices.
