A new report reveals that Priscilla Presley’s wishes to be laid to rest next to her ex-husband, Elvis Presley, has been denied in a new settlement over Lisa Marie Presley’s trust.
According to TMZ, the actor wanted to be buried next to Elvis Presley, but that request was denied in a settlement of a legal dispute over the trust of Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
Presley reached a settlement on Tuesday with granddaughter Riley Keough.
“Although I don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon, it is my family’s and my wish for me to be laid to rest with my daughter and the love of my life when that time comes,” Priscilla told People in a statement from her representative. “We appreciate the love from all the fans.”
“My family has resolved all confusion as it relates to our plea to the court and request for document interpretation after my daughter Lisa Marie’s untimely passing,” Presley told People, adding “there was never any lawsuit filed against my beloved granddaughter.”
Lisa Marie died of cardiac arrest at 54 years old. Priscilla filed a petition questioning the “authenticity and validity” of a 2016 document that amended the trust that removed her as a co-trustee while placing Keough in charge.
Elvis was buried in 1977 at his Graceland property, which has since become a 200,000-square-foot complex featuring museums and restaurants. His parents, Gladys and Vernon, as well as Lisa Marie — and her son, Benjamin Keough — are buried there.
Priscilla married Elvis in 1967 after eight years, per People. Despite separating in 1972 and finalizing their divorce the following year, they shared custody of Lisa Marie until Elvis died. Presley has since repeatedly described him as the love of her life.
Attorneys for both parties are currently planning to file a motion to seal the settlement agreement, according to CNN.
