Taking care of her twin granddaughters, Finley and Harper Lockwood, has only made Priscilla Presley more fond of them! When asked about what it’s like having the 9-year-old sisters in the house, Priscilla told Us Weekly, “It’s great, it’s absolutely great. I love it, I love it. Having twins is quite an experience, I have to say.”
Despite being the same age and looking alike, Elvis’ ex-wife said that the girls are definitely individuals. “Both of them are very different,” she explained, revealing that they have very “different personalities.” However, they are both “wonderful kids, wonderful children.” Now that’s a proud grandma!
Although we love hearing Priscilla gush over her grandkids, the circumstances that brought them there is very sad and disturbing. Her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, accused her ex-husband and the twins’ father, Michael Lockwood, of child abuse in her divorce documents, saying that she discovered “disturbing” photos of kids on his computer. Shortly thereafter, Priscilla confirmed on Facebook that she had the girls with her, saying “there is lots of confusion, commotion, and concern from all the talk circulating. Let me put this to rest… the girls have not been in foster care and never will be. The girls have been with me and will be until all this is sorted out. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your positive support.”
The girls are very lucky to have Priscilla to look after them while their mom deals with multiple personal issues. On top of the divorce, she’s struggling financially after she was “betrayed by her former Trustee, Barry Siegel and Provident Financial Management — Hollywood money managers to stars like Al Pacino and Rob Thomas,” her lawyer told TMZ. In the meantime, Priscilla has stepped in to do mom stuff, such as taking the girls shopping or to the salon. Clearly, she doesn’t mind the responsibility one bit!
