lisa marie presley, the only child of rock and roll legend elvis presley, is finding herself embroiled in a heartbreaking family battle. Court documents reveal hundreds of indecent photos of children were discovered on a computer belonging to Michael Lockwood, Presley’s estranged husband. Lockwood, who is a musician, is also the father of Presley’s 8-year-old twins Harper and Finley. Unfortunately, the shocking evidence was enough for California authorities to make the decision to remove the girls from the home and place them in protective custody.

According to papers filed in the California Superior Court, Lockwood is facing charges of sexual abuse and neglect. He has not yet been convicted of any crime related to possessing the photos, but the mere fact of having such material is documented evidence of conduct, which has destroyed the emotional calm of Presley. Accordingly, Lockwood’s request for spousal support from Presley must be denied based on reason of his conduct.

Bitter divorce and courtroom drama

Presley, who was once also married to late pop star Michael Jackson, said she was shocked and horrified by the discovery. Lockwood’s attorney, Jeff Sturman, rejects the claims, calling them inaccurate and unproven. Sturman told People magazine that his client will not elaborate or publicly disclose any negative information regarding his estranged wife as an act of retaliation.

In the documents, Presley added that she believes Tennessee law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation and that she lived in treatment some time between June and the filing date.
