Priscilla Presley & Riley Keough Appear Together Following Estate Drama
October 13, 2023
There is no bad blood between Priscilla Presley and her granddaughter Riley Keough!
The pair, who became embroiled in a nasty battle for the Presley Graceland Estate following the death of Lisa Marie Presley, put up a united front in their latest outing.
Priscilla Presley & Riley Keough Put Up United Front During Date Night
Priscilla and Keough recently showed fans that they remain a family despite the past drama after they stepped out for a dinner date at Nobu, Malibu, on Wednesday night. The pair were joined by the “Naked Gun” actress’ other grandchildren, twins Finley and Harper Lockwood.
The foursome enjoyed Sushi at the celebrity restaurant, with the matriarch reportedly footing the bill. Priscilla was all dressed for the outing in an all-black ensemble comprising a black bomber jacket over a polka dot top and matching black pants. She complemented her look with a designer handbag and let her signature red hair add vibrancy.
Keough opted for a similar look. The “Daisy Jones and the Six” actress rocked a long black robe coat and open-toe sandals, looking simple for the outing. However, Finely and Harper — whom Lisa welcomed with Michael Lockwood — brought the color to the affair.
As seen in photos obtained by DailyMail, Harper donned a gorgeous floral minidress paired with Adidas sneakers, while Finley showed up in an olive green dress, high heels, and a navy jacket.
Recall that Keough and Priscilla were at loggerheads over Elvis Presley’s iconic Graceland Estate following Lisa’s death in January. The famous property was left in Lisa’s care by her famous father, but after her passing, it was discovered she left it for her daughter, thanks to an amended will.
The famous grandmother wasn’t having it and filed a petition disputing an amendment to her daughter’s will. However, in June, Keough was appointed the sole trustee of the Graceland Estate and the sub-trusts designed for her 14-year-old twin sisters.
According to the settlement terms, “The Good Doctor” actress decided not to charge fees for her services as the trustee to “save money that would have gone to Priscilla, who was going to charge a trustee fee.” On the other hand, Priscilla was appointed as the trustee for the sub-trust designated for her son, Navarone Garibaldi, who is Lisa Marie’s half-brother.
This sub-trust will entitle Garibaldi to a 1/9 share of the overall Trust. The remaining 8/9 of the Trust will be divided among Lisa Marie’s daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper. The “Elvis and Me” star also received an undisclosed lump sum payment from the Trust.
Keough Assured She & Priscilla Would Be ‘Happy’ Despite Legal Drama
Two months before the surprising public outing, Keough, for the first time, broke her silence on the legal issue with her grandmother in an interview with Vanity Fair. The “Logan Lucky” star debunked rumors of her and Priscilla being enemies, admitting that “there was a lot of chaos in every aspect of our lives” due to Lisa’s death.
“Everyone was in a bit of a panic to understand how we move forward, and it just took a minute to understand the details of the situation because it’s complicated,” she explained. “We are a family, but there’s also a huge business side of our family. So I think that there was clarity that needed to be had.”
Nevertheless, Keough maintained that all is well with her famous grandmother, saying, “Things with Grandma will be happy. They’ve never not been happy. There was a bit of upheaval, but now everything’s going to be how it was. She’s a beautiful woman, and she was a huge part of creating my grandfather’s legacy and Graceland.”
The ex-wife of Elvis shared a similar sentiment in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying the media exaggerated what happened. “Riley is now the executor, which should be right, obviously, being her daughter. Riley and I are on good terms. We were never not on good terms. That was all publicity,” the New Yorker clarified.
Slamming the media for spreading a negative narrative about her relationship with her granddaughter, Priscilla said, “This is private, and this is not something to fool around with and say that we’re not agreeing. In fact, I’m having dinner with (Riley) tonight. We understand what needs to be done. I’m there for her. She knows that. She wants me there for her to help her.”
