Riley Keough is doing her best to take care of her sisters after their mom, Lisa Marie Presley, died last month.
“Riley has been so good with the twins,” Keough’s uncle, Navarone Garibaldi Garcia, told People of Lisa Marie’s 14-year-old daughters, Finley and Harper.
Garcia, 35, is the only son of Keough’s grandmother, Priscilla Presley. She shared Garcia with Marco Garibaldi. Meanwhile, Lisa Marie was the only child of Priscilla and Elvis Presley.
Lisa Marie shared her twin daughters with ex-husband Michael Lockwood. The two co-parented them following a rocky custody battle.
The “Lights Out” singer shared Riley, 33, and her late son, Benjamin Keough, with her first husband, Danny Keough. Benjamin died by suicide at age 27 in 2020.
As previously reported, Riley and her two sisters will inherit Graceland. The estate was where Lisa Marie grew up and where Elvis died in 1997 at the age of 42. Lisa Marie was just 9 years old when her dad died.
Graceland had been left to Lisa Marie as part of her inheritance in a trust that dissolved on her 25th birthday in 1993. She then became the sole owner of the property. Graceland is also the resting place for Elvis, Lisa Marie and Benjamin.
Riley attended the public memorial service for her mom at Graceland. She had her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, read a heartwarming letter to her mom on her behalf.
“Thank you for being my mother in this life,” her message began. “I’m eternally grateful.”
The letter continued, “I remember how it felt to be loved by the most loving mother I’ve ever known. How safe it felt to be in your arms: I remember that feeling as a child and I remember it two weeks ago on your couch.”
Lisa Marie died on Jan. 12 after suffering cardiac arrest. She was 54.
Riley broke her silence on her mom’s sudden passing a week after her death, posting a throwback photo with her mom to her Instagram with several red heart emojis.
Since Lisa Marie’s passing, Priscilla has contested her daughter’s will, which had eliminated her and her former business manager years ago.
Priscilla, 77, claimed Lisa Marie’s signature on a 2016 amendment appeared “inconsistent” and alleged that her daughter’s name had even been spelled wrong, according to court documents obtained by Page Six. However, a source close to Lisa Marie later called Priscilla’s legal action a “money grab.”
The insider further alleged that the twins’ father did not have a relationship with Lisa Marie and wasn’t personally invited to her memorial, despite his attendance.
Meanwhile, Lisa Marie reportedly took out $35 million in life insurance policies before her passing — but was in more than $4 million in debt. She was also said to have filled out paperwork to receive a lump sum of $2 million, but due to a clerical error, the policy was never cashed in.
Priscilla exclusively told Page Six that she was just trying to protect her family.
“Today would have been Lisa’s 55th birthday,” she said in a statement on Wednesday. “My wish is to protect my three grandchildren and keep our family together.”
