|LMP ORDERED TO PAY HUSBANDS LEGAL FEE'S FOR DIVORCE
March 15, 2017 - The Hollywood / Elvis Express Radio
Lisa Marie Presley has been ordered to cover her estranged husband Michael Lockwood’s legal fees during their divorce battle.
Elvis Presley’s daughter filed to end her 10-year marriage to the musician in June (16), citing irreconcilable differences, and last month (Feb17), he requested Presley pay
$100,000 (£82,000) towards his legal fees. He was granted $50,000 (£41,000).
She now has to reportedly pay $10,000-a-month (£8,200) beginning this week (ends17Mar17). The payments will continue for the next five months.
At last month’s hearing, Lockwood’s request for $40,000-a-month (£32,800) in spousal support was also denied, but according to TheWrap.com, court officials “retain jurisdiction”
to grant Michael retroactive spousal support if the waiver of support in the 2007 post-nuptial agreement is ruled invalid. The parties are due back in court next month (Apr17) as
their bitter divorce battle rumbles on.
The legal papers did not address the situation with the former couple’s kids. The twins are currently being cared for by Presley’s mother, Priscilla, after officials at California’s
Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) were called in to investigate the alleged discovery of indecent photos and videos of minors on Lockwood’s computer.
Lockwood’s attorney, Jeff Sturman, has blasted the claims, branding them “highly sensational” and “inaccurate”, and earlier this month (Mar17) officials at the Tennessee Bureau of
Investigation confirmed no charges would be filed against the music producer.
The future of the girls will be determined during an upcoming trial, which is set to take place this month (Mar17).
Lisa Marie, who wed Lockwood in 2006, has also previously been married to Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson, and Danny Keough, the father of her two grown-up children.
