Lisa Marie Presley‘s daughter Riley Keough seems to be getting close to the finish line in her winding journey to take over her mother’s trust … she just needs a stamp of approval from the court.
According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Riley wants the court to approve the settlement confirming she’s the sole trustee of Lisa’s trust … which holds the proceeds of a life insurance policy.
As we previously reported, Riley and her grandmother, Priscilla Presley, recently settled their dispute over who would control Lisa’s trust … agreeing to a settlement where Riley got control and Priscilla got a seven-figure payday.
Riley wants the court to approve the settlement the family agreed to … which also confirms Lisa’s ex-husband, Michael Lockwood, as the guardian ad litem regarding these estate matters for their 14-year-old twin girls.
Remember … when Elvis Presley‘s only child died back in January, there was a lot of behind-the-scenes family drama … with Priscilla and Michael squaring off against Riley.
In the end, everyone agreed to let Riley take the reins on the trust … and all that’s left is the court’s approval.
