Lisa Marie Presley Called Out “Vengeful” Priscilla Movie Before Her Death – JP
“I am worried that my mother isn’t seeing the nuance here or realizing the way in which Elvis will be perceived when this movie comes out,” she explained, according to the outlet. “I feel protective over my mother who has spent her whole life elevating my father’s legacy. I am worried she doesn’t understand the intentions behind this film or the outcome it will have.”
The Tennessee native—who is survived by daughter Riley Keough, 34, and 15-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood—also said she and her loved ones have been “drowning,” over the last few years, following her split from ex Michael Lockwood, whom she filed for divorce from in 2016, and the death of her son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020.
Lisa Marie also compared the movie to Baz Luhrmann‘s 2022 film Elvis, writing that she didn’t understand the “need to attempt to take my father down on the heels of such an incredible film using the excuse that you are trying to tell my mother’s story,” to Sofia, adding, “but from your very dark and jaded reality.”
