After the January 2023 death of Elvis’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley, from a bowel obstruction stemming from bariatric surgery she’d had several years prior, a legal battle broke out between Riley Keough and Priscilla Presley over control of Lisa Marie’s estate, which includes Graceland, per Southern Living. Among the things Priscilla was after was to be buried next to Elvis, which would have required moving either his father Vernon’s grave or the body of Minnie May Presley, Elvis’ paternal grandmother, which was a “non-starter,” per TMZ and People.
In the end, a Los Angeles judge named Riley Keough the “sole trustee” of her mother’s estate, per People. In the settlement, Priscilla Presley, besides receiving $1 million plus $400,000 in legal fees, will also get to be buried in Graceland’s Meditation Garden. When the time comes for the 78-year-old, she’ll join her daughter, Lisa Marie, and her grandson, Benjamin Keough — who died by suicide in 2020 at 27 years old — in being buried at Graceland, per Today.
