Lisa Marie Pres­ley’s Psych Ward Drama!

Star has the dirty de­tails on the depths of her rock bot­tom.

LISA Marie Pres­ley is in free fall, again. Two years af­ter the singer filed for di­vorce from gui­tarist Michael Lock­wood and checked into re­hab for a pill ad­dic­tion, Star has ac­quired ex­clu­sive court doc­u­ments that show Elvis’ 50-year-old daugh­ter spi­ral­ing into a dark hole of ad­dic­tion, para­noia and fi­nan­cial woes. De­spite win­ning cus­tody of her 10-yearold twins, Harper and Fin­ley, for now, sources say she’s suf­fer­ing from drug-in­duced hal­lu­ci­na­tions and shock­ing delu­sions of sex­ual abuse. “Lisa ur­gently needs a men­tal health assess­ment, but it’s un­likely she’ll co­op­er­ate with any­one,” an in­sider says. “She refuses to be drug tested and doesn’t even turn up to court for ap­pear­ances un­less she has to. Lisa needs to get help.”


That much is clear from the court doc­u­ments ob­tained by Star, in which Michael al­leges that in 2015 Lisa Marie would take up to 80 opi­ate pills a day, along with co­caine and al­co­hol, and stay awake with­out sleep­ing for 11 days at a time! The drug combo ap­par­ently made her “para­noid and hal­lu­ci­na­tory, see­ing co­caine fly­ing through the air and bugs crawl­ing all over her body,” the pa­pers de­tail. In a 2017 court de­po­si­tion, Lisa Marie her­self ad­mit­ted that “in the last year of our marriage, I was abus­ing co­caine ter­ri­bly.” When asked whether her drug use was sub­stan­tial in the last few year of their

union, she an­swered, It was bad, yeah.” Then, as if of­fer­ing some tepid con­so­la­tion, she added, “I didn’t mix the pills and al­co­hol un­til, like, the last two years.” But her drug use seems to have taken a toll on her brain. Last Oc­to­ber, when a judge ques­tioned her on some­thing as ba­sic as her wed­ding an­niver­sary, she couldn’t re­mem­ber the date, or even the year, guess­ing she and Michael had tied the knot in 2007, when they ac­tu­ally wed in 2006. As the messi­ness of the di­vorce bat­tle mounted, Lisa Marie — al­ready re­port­edly $16 mil­lion in debt — ac­cused Michael, a jour­ney­man gui­tarist, of run­ning up “po­ten­tially mil­lions” on her credit cards, which she rea­soned gave her the right to sell off his gui­tars and record­ing equip­ment. “Miss Pres­ley sold the mu­si­cal equip­ment Michael uses to make a liv­ing,” his at­tor­ney ar­gued to a judge. “She turned him into a pariah in the mu­sic busi­ness.”


Lisa Marie’s frag­ile men­tal state be­came dras­ti­cally worse when they sep­a­rated; she al­legedly found naked pic­tures Michael had taken of the twins dur­ing bath­time, and her al­tered frame of mind led her to be­come ob­sessed with the idea that Michael was plan­ning to sex­u­ally abuse their daugh­ters. In court doc­u­ments filed in Fe­bru­ary 2017, Lisa Marie said the pho­tos made her “shocked and hor­ri­fied and sick to my stom­ach.” Michael vig­or­ously de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tions, call­ing them a “dis­taste­ful” at­tempt to smear his name, with his lawyer adding that his
