Following Lisa Marie Presley’s death in January 2023, her family was quick to get involved in a lawsuit over inheritance, after mourning her demise. The late singer’s daughter Riley Keough became the trust controller of Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion and was given 15% ownership of the singer’s estate. This led Priscilla Presley to challenge her inheritance with a lawsuit and drag the reputed family into a headline-making drama.
