Lisa Marie Presley‘s divorce battle with future-ex-husband Michael Lockwood is really heating up.
The former couple is set to appear in court next month to battle it out over their postnuptial agreement, which they signed in 2007, one year into their marriage. According to documents obtained by The Blast, Presley claims Lockwood’s assertions that he doesn’t remember signing or agreeing to the document is nonsense.
Presley claims Lockwood was “completely aware” of their deal, “was completely represented by counsel” and “had the full and complete opportunity to negotiate the Agreement,” the publication reported. Presley also claims she “did not gain an unfair advantage or use undue influence to force the execution of the Postnuptial Agreement.”
The agreement states there will be no community property created during the marriage, meaning everything she brought into the marriage or obtained after the marriage would remain hers entirely. It also states that neither Presley nor Lockwood would have the right to spousal support.
“So,” Presley’s attorney asks in the documents, “does this Court believe the word of [Lockwood] who clearly has much to gain economically by feigning amnesia or ignorance, or does this Court follow the language in the certification executed by an attorney who had been practicing family law since 1956?”
Presley is the sole trustee and beneficiary of the Promenade Trust, which owns a 15 percent interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises, and was worth more than $62 million when the couple signed the postnup. Lockwood reportedly had a negative net worth due to debts.
