Priscilla Presley Vows to “Protect” Her Grandchildren After Lisa Marie Presley’s Death – E! Online
Priscilla Presley has family on her mind.
Nearly three weeks after Lisa Marie Presley‘s death, the actress honored her late daughter in a tribute while expressing her desire to “protect” the singer’s surviving children: daughter Riley Keough and twin girls Finley and Harper Lockwood. (Lisa Marie shared Riley, 33, with first husband Danny Keough and her twins, 14, with fourth husband Michael Lockwood.)
“Today would have been Lisa’s 55th birthday,” the 77-year-old began in a statement to E! News. “My wish is to protect my three grandchildren and keep our family together.”
Priscilla—who is also mom to musician Navarone Garibaldi from her relationship with Marco Garibaldi—continued, “From the first moment I held Lisa in my arms, I’ve protected, loved and guided her, as I have my son. Our hearts are broken, and I am having to learn to live without my only daughter.”
Showing her appreciation for the outpour of public support since Lisa Marie’s passing, the matriarch added, “We truly love all of you, and we feel your prayers. Thank you so much for caring so deeply for our family.”
