Riley Keough Is Reportedly "Deeply Upset" at Family Legal Drama Over Elvis Estate

Daisy Jones and the Six star Riley Keough and her sisters, Harper and Finley, inherited Graceland when their mother, Lisa Marie Presely, tragically passed away—but there's been some drama when it comes to managing the estate.

Riley's grandmother Priscilla Presley reportedly filed a petition to challenge her late daughter's will—specifically questioning a 2016 amendment that replaced her as a co-trustee with Riley and her late brother Benjamin.

So, how is Riley doing in the wake of all this emotionally charged drama? A source tells Entertainment Tonight that "the family drama is the last thing Riley wants to be dealing with" and that she's "deeply upset at how things are unfolding." I mean, understandable!

The source also adds that Riley "hopes to still be a huge part" of her sister's lives amid their custody proceedings, while a second insider notes that she "is hopeful everything in her family will work out."

TBD on how this shakes out, but back in February 2023, Joel Weinshanker, a Managing Partner at Elvis Presley Enterprises, released a statement saying that Lisa Marie was "quite certain and quite direct" about who she wanted Elvis' legacy left to, adding "That was always Riley and Ben."

"There was never a question in her mind that they would be the stewards, that they would look at it exactly the way she did," he claimed. "Obviously, when Ben passed, it really sat with Riley. Although Riley is a movie star, she's an award-winning director, she had always had an interest and had always known that, one day, she would be in charge of [things]."

Meanwhile, Priscilla shared a statement of her own, saying, "There is an individual that bought their way into the family enterprise that is trying to speak on behalf of our family. This person is not a representative of Elvis or our family. Please allow us the time we need to work together and sort this out. Please ignore 'the noise.' As I have always been there for Elvis' legacy, our family and the fans, I will continue to forge a pathway forward with respect, honesty, dignity, integrity and love."
