These allegations can be found in court documents filed shortly before the death of singer Elvis Presley’s daughter and shown to the Chron.
Michael Lockwook, who had twin daughters with the 54-year-old woman, argues in the documents that she used “fair game” tactics to thwart his claims for child support.
“Legitimate targeting” is a practice whereby it is possible “to lie, deceive, capture or destroy an enemy by any means and without discipline,” according to Lisa Marie Presley’s ex-husband in the Chron viewed documents.
The man adds that he spent $1 million in legal fees in his lawsuit with the woman and is at risk of filing for bankruptcy because of the pressure on his finances.
Lisa Marie Presley died on January 12 at the age of 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
She is a mother to three children, Finley and Harper, 14-year-old twins, and Riley Keough, 33.
She joined the Church of Scientology at the age of 11 but left the movement in 2014.
