AceShowbiz - How Riley Keough feels about Priscilla Presley challenging Lisa Marie Presley's trust has been revealed. According to a source, the eldest daughter of Lisa Marie "is disappointed" that her grandmother goes against "her mom's wishes" by challenging her will.
"Riley wants to keep the family together and keep Lisa Marie's legacy in a positive light, but she feels that her grandmother's actions are pushing the family apart even more," the source tells ET. "It's upsetting to her as she does want to have a relationship with Priscilla, but at this point in time they are not close."
The source further confirms previous report that Lisa Marie was estranged from her mother when the amendment was written. The source says the late singer "did not have a healthy or close relationship" with Priscilla prior to her death, adding that things were "very complicated" between them.
"Lisa Marie was struggling, and it definitely put a strain on her relationship with her mother," the source adds. "Lisa Marie always felt Priscilla was trying to have control over her." For that reason, the source says that Lisa Marie "always meant for her children to inherit her trust."
"Lisa always wanted Riley and Benjamin to be the beneficiaries of the trust and that was no secret," the source explains, adding that the late singer's "children meant the world to her, and she would do anything for them."
Lisa Marie also had twin daughters Harper and Finley with her fourth husband Michael Lookwood. Her son Benjamin Keough, Riley's brother, whom she shared with first husband Danny Keough, died in July 2020 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Priscilla and Lisa Marie's former business manager Barry Siegel were appointed trustees in 2010, but the singer replaced them with her eldest children Riley and Benjamin in 2016 as Lisa Marie "had a major issue" with the ways in which her trust was being handled and even sued the latter in 2018.
Priscilla is contesting the amendment. In her court documents, the 77-year-old questioned the "authenticity and validity" of the amendment to the trust. She recently claimed that she filed to contest because she wants to "protect" her grandchildren. She also insisted that she "loved" Elvis Presley and their daughter Lisa Marie "very much" and told people to "ignore the noise" amid the dispute over her daughter's will.
