Priscilla Presley has confirmed she is stepping in to take care of her daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s children while their father faces child abuse allegations.
The 71-year-old took to Facebook to share photos of 8-year-old-twins Finley and Harper Lockwood, to confirm that they are currently in her custody.
“There is Lots of confusion, commotion and concern from all the talk circulating,” Priscilla wrote in one post of the pair playing in a swimming pool. “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.”
In a second post showing the adorable girls hugging she thanked her fans for their “positive support.”
This comes after reports that Presley is taking her estranged husband Michael Lockwood to court after allegedly finding inappropriate images of the children while they were in his possession.
In documents filed in a California Superior Court as a part of the couple’s ongoing divorce, the 49-year-old - who is the daughter of Elvis Presley – said she was “shocked and horrified and sick to her stomach” at the discovery of the material.
Police in Beverly Hills have confirmed they have seized “several items” in relation to the matter, but have since told PEOPLE that they have “not opened an official case.”
Lockwood, 55, has since rejected the allegations, with his lawyer suggesting the claims are “highly sensational, inaccurate and unproven.”
