Michael Lockwood has filed a new petition to become the guardian ad litem of his and Lisa Marie Presley’s twin daughters amid the Presley family’s will battle, Us Weekly can confirm.
According to court documents obtained by Us, Lockwood, 61, filed a motion in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 9. In his petition, the composer asked to represent his 14-year-old daughters’ interests in the ongoing estate case.
“The minor is a beneficiary of a trust at issue before the probate court,” Lockwood, who welcomed Harper and Finley with Presley in October 2008, said in the court docs of his reasoning for filing. “The minor requires the appointment of a guardian ad litem to represent her interests in the proceeding. There is no conflict regarding the appointment because the proposed guardian is not a beneficiary of the trust instrument at issue.”
