The rumor mill definitely began turning after last week’s news that Lisa Marie Presley discovered inappropriate images of children on electronic devices belong to her ex-husband, Michael Lockwood. Especially after it was revealed that the California Department of Children and Family Services had stepped in and removed Lisa Marie’s twin daughters, Finley and Harper Lockwood, from the family home.
However, according to a post on Priscilla Presley’s Facebook page, the little girls are safe and comfortable in their grandmother’s home until “all this is sorted out.” She writes, “The girls have not been in foster care and never will be. They have been with me.”
There is Lots of confusion, commotion and concern from all the talk circulating. Let me put this to rest… the girls…
She also shared a second post with a photo of her granddaughters thanking everyone for their support.
According to People magazine, Michael Lockwood is facing charges of child abuse and neglect after hundreds of photos of children were found on various devices in the family’s home. They also report that police in Beverly Hills confirmed that there were child abuse allegations involving Lisa Marie and Michael last summer. Lisa Marie filed for divorce from Michael last June and it is reported that she requested full custody of their daughters.
Those charges are now being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations; however, no official case has been opened.
Lisa Marie’s charges of child abuse were filed last month as part of their ongoing divorce proceedings.
“People” has been unable to confirm claims that Lockwood is under investigation and no explanation has been provided regarding why the children were removed from the custody of both parents.
