Lisa Maria Presley’s Ex-Husband Shared a Statement About How He and Their Twin Daughters Are Doing After Her Death


Many continue to mourn the loss of singer-songwriter Lisa Maria Presley, who died at the age of 54 after a cardiac arrest. Her tragic death was followed by a sea of praise from fans and celebrities. Among those who honored her memory were her ex Nicolas Cage and Rita Wilson. Her last ex-husband, Michael Lockwood, also paid tribute to her in a personal statement in which he spoke about how he and their 14-year-old twin girls are doing after her death.

Michael Lockwood spoke frankly about the death of his ex-wife. The guitarist and music producer shared a statement with People explaining that he and his girls are still “recovering” from the loss. Despite this, he shared optimistic thoughts about the future:

We are all shocked by the sudden passing of Lisa Maria Presley, the mother of my two beautiful twin daughters Harper and Finley. Nothing prepares us for such an unexpected tragedy. It’s incomprehensible. The most important thing for me at this time is to take care of my daughters so that they always feel safe and loved. They both have an incredible spirit, and they will carry the legacy of our family for the rest of their lives. Since their birth, Harper and Finley have given me great joy, and I remain devoted to them. We ask for privacy at this incredibly difficult time.

Lisa Maria Presley and Michael Lockwood tied the knot back in 2006, and the former eventually filed for divorce in 2016. The breakup was eventually completed in 2021, and Presley—Elvis Presley’s only child—was granted custody of the children. After the death of Lisa Maria, it was decided that Lockwood would now have girls on a permanent basis. Sources tell TMZ that Harper and Finley are adamant about being with their father. It is reported that the two live with Lockwood after the death of their mother and are already getting used to the new situation.

This latest tidbit of news about the girls coincides with the information previously reported. It was alleged that both girls refused to return to their mother’s house after her death. Because of this, they reportedly stayed at the home of their maternal grandmother, Priscilla Presley, as they all coped with their grief.

This weekend Lisa Maria Presley will be buried at Graceland, where her father and late son Benjamin are also buried. Speaking of the Presley family complex in Memphis, the estate will now be transferred to Harper and Finley, as well as Presley’s eldest daughter, actress Riley Keough. More recently, Kio lovingly paid tribute to her mother with a cute post that provoked a reaction from people like Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie.

It goes without saying that this is an incredibly difficult time for Presley and their extended family. But the statement by Michael Lockwood and other relatives indicates that the group is striving to maintain a strong united front. We can only wish them all the best, as they strive to navigate this new reality without their beloved mother, daughter and artist.

We here at CinemaBlend continue to express our condolences to the family and loved ones of Lisa Maria Presley at this difficult time.
