Lisa Marie Presley’s ex-husband Michael Lockwood is seen for the first time since her death


Lisa Marie Presley’s fourth husband Michael Lockwood was seen Friday for the first time since his ex-wife’s death, after it was revealed he is taking care of the couple’s twin daughters. 

Lockwood, 61, who dramatically split from the star in 2016, said his world had been ‘turned on its ear’ and he was with twins Finley and Harper Vivienne, 14. 

He was seen outside the Los Angeles house he shares with his new wife, Beauty Beach Lounge hairstylist Stephanie Hobgood, wearing a pink sleeveless t-shirt, jeans and a fur trapper hat. 

The pair live in an estate estimated to be worth $800,000 in Thousand Oaks, according to Zillow.

Lockwood and Lisa Marie spent years fighting about finances and were still negotiating up until her death on Thursday. 

In the months before she died, Presley, the only daughter of Elvis Presley, owed $1million in back taxes amid a mountain of debt, according to RadarOnline.

The couple married in 2006 and had twin daughters together in 2008 – before splitting up in 2016, which led to a bitter divorce battle with Lockwood demanding child support payments.

They are understood to share custody of their children 50/50, with Lockwood taking care of them with his new wife, and Lisa Marie paying $4,600 in child support to the guitarist a month. 

However, Radar reported that they’d recently reached a settlement where she would pay him $6,000 a month. 

In a recent court filing from December, Michel claimed his ongoing legal battle with Lisa Marie over their split had cost him more than a million dollars in legal fees and that he was considering bankruptcy 

Lockwood was seeking $40,000 a month in child support and insisted she had more money than she claimed in court documents.

Last year, he took Lisa Marie to court claiming she had money coming in from a $1million advance for a book, funds from the Golden Globe-winning Elvis film and a trust he believed Presley controlled. 

He also claimed Presley still had a stake in Graceland, as well as a hotel owned on the property.  

Amid the divorce proceedings with Lockwood, she temporarily lost custody of her twin daughters, who went to live with her mother Priscilla.

In a 2017 deposition, a year after the acrimonious split, she admitted to abusing cocaine, opioids, painkillers and alcohol.

After their split, Lisa Marie begged a judge to ‘declare her officially single’ from her estranged husband after five years of separation from Lockwood – who refused to divorce. 

In a statement by his lawyer Joe Yanny, obtained by Entertainment Tonight, he said: ‘Michael had been hoping for a speedy and complete recovery because her children needed her.  

‘It is very sad it didn’t turn out that way. Michael’s world has been turned on its ear, he is with both of his daughters now.’ 

Yanny added that Lockwood’s prayers are with Priscilla Presley and the rest of the Presley family.

She said that there was ‘no hope’ for the couple to reconcile and wanted to ‘move forward’ with her life. 

Lisa Marie died at the age of 54 on Thursday, hours after suffering a ‘full cardiac arrest’ at her home in Calabasas.

In 2017, shortly after the couple announced their separation, Lisa Marie falsely accused him of being a pedophile. 

She claimed that she had found a trove of indecent images and videos of children on Lockwood’s computer.

The heiress said in a court filing at the time: ‘I was shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach.’

Lisa Marie said in the papers that Beverly Hills Police Department found 80 of Lockwood’s devices during a raid on her home.

She added that the cops still have them and they have not been fully analyzed – though the allegations were investigated and no charges were brought.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation looked into the issue but did not deem the actions criminal. 

The agency’s public information officer said at the time: ‘Barring any new potential evidence or information, we have concluded our involvement in this matter. We have not been able to determine a crime occurred in Tennessee and accordingly do not have an open investigation.’

Lockwood’s lawyer said that Lisa Marie’s statements were ‘inaccurate and one-sided.’ 

Attorney Jeff Sturman went on: ‘Mr Lockwood is not going to publicly disclose very negative information about Ms Presley to retaliate. 

Therefore, while Mr Lockwood denies the truth of what Ms Presley chose to put in the press.’ 

The couple’s legal battles appear to have been settled last October when they came to came to deal on longstanding issues relating to child support payments, according to Radar Online.

Graceland remained with Lisa Marie, who inherited the estate on her 25th birthday, as stipulated in Elvis' will, and it is unclear who it will go to now

As the only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, she was quickly thrust into the limelight as a child and has had her fair share of tragedy

Lockwood had been demanding payments from Lisa Marie. The pair had a prenuptial agreement during their marriage which prevented Lockwood from claiming any financial support from his former wife. 

The guitarist claimed that his ex-wife’s financial situation was better than first reported, thanks for money raised by her father’s estate and through the financial success of the Baz Lurhmann movie, Elvis. 

He went on to portray himself as a starving artist and said that while he was married to Lisa Marie, she forced him to turn to paying music gigs in order to play music with her for free.  

The final settlement was not made public, and days after the October agreement, Lockwood remarried as he tied the knot with Beauty Beach Lounge hairstylist Stephanie Hobgood.  

His twins served as ‘grooms-women’ alongside his ‘best woman’ Jeannia Robinette at the Presidio Chapel inside El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park.
