Lisa Marie Presley is divorcing musician husband Michael Lockwood because he was 'abusive' and 'took advantage' of her vast wealth, Daily Mail Online can reveal.
A source close to the star has also revealed Presley is demanding full custody of their seven-year-old twin daughters and has requested that Lockwood only have 'monitored'
visitation, because she fears he is is an 'unsafe father'.
The bombshell claims come after Presley - the only daughter of Elvis Presley - filed for divorce on June 24 at LA Superior Court citing 'irreconcilable differences'.
TMZ confirmed on Tuesday that Elvis' 48-year-old daughter had split from her 55-year-old husband on Tuesday after separating for a few days prior.
According to the source, Lockwood, 55, Lisa Marie's husband of ten-years, has gone into hiding since the couple split on June 13 and is refusing to give his wife's legal team his
Presley, who as the sole heir of Rock and Roll icon Elvis' estate has an estimated net worth of $300million - is, unsurprisingly, not asking for any spousal support or child support.
It has also been reported that the pair has a post nuptial arrangement, which does not detail any division of property.
But the main concern for the mother-of-four - who has daughter Riley, 27, and son Benjamin, 23, with her ex-husband Danny Keough, and twin daughters Finley and Harper with
Lockwood - is getting full custody of her and the musician's children.
A source close to Presley told Daily Mail Online: 'Lisa had had enough of Michael. He was abusive to her but that's just a small part of it - that's not the reason they've split.
'The overriding reason for the divorce is the financial abuse, Michael has taken advantage of his wife's wealth in recent years and it put a strain on their marriage.'
Daily Mail Online has learned that the couple had lived in Tennessee until recently when they both moved to Los Angeles.
But it's believed they were living separately when Presley filed for divorce.
The source added that lawyers for Presley are still trying to locate Lockwood so they can serve him with the divorce papers.
'He hasn't even been served yet, but that should happen in the next few days,' the source said.
'He is hiding his address, he's in Los Angeles but so far he's been refusing to tell Lisa Marie's legal team where he lives.'
Attempts by Daily Mail Online to reach Lockwood for comment have been unsuccessful.
Presley - who has been married four times - wed musical director Lockwood in a lavish $340,000 Japanese ceremony in Kyoto, Japan in 2006.
Her first husband Danny Keogh, was best man at the ceremony.
Presley was previously married to pop icon Michael Jackson for two years in 1994 and briefly to movie star Nicolas Cage in 2002 before wedding Lockwood.
She once admitted the secret behind her fourth marriage was Lockwood's hands on approach.
Speaking previously, she said: 'He takes care of everything. He picks the musicians. He gets them ready to tour.
'That's how we met, so we kind of knew each other that way and fell in love - you know, by just working together.
'I'm just amazed at how much he takes on and how much he deals with and handles.'
