The Real Lisa Marie Presley Sues Elvis' Estate For $130M


Over the years, Lisa Johansen has popped up from time to time to cause havoc and destruction in the Presley family. It is kind of funny actually and when I think of Priscilla being distressed I am not terribly sad about it. It is only through some bad timing on Elvis' part that Priscilla has anything at all right now. Anyway, Lisa has always claimed that she is the real Lisa Marie Presley and was shipped to Sweden when Elvis died to protect her from kidnappers. She says that Priscilla is her mother and that the Lisa Marie Presley we all know is a fake. Did you know Lisa Marie Presley has two of the shortest celebrity marriages? There was the whole Michael Jackson thing and then I had forgotten she was married to Nicolas cage for something like four months.


Anyway, Lisa J is married and has four kids and once wrote a book discussing her claims that she is the real Lisa Marie, but was sued by her publishers because she never got a DNA test. Back in August, Lisa J visited Graceland during death week and she says she was harassed so she is suing for $130M. Back in 1992, she actually got away with pretending she was the real Lisa Marie Presley while at Graceland and she got let into private areas and walked away with a whole bunch of stuff. Do the people at Graceland not know what Lisa Marie looks like?

Well one has Elvis's face and one doesn't....

The Lisa Marie Presley we know is the spitting image of Elvis. Lisa Johansen's eyes could bare a resemblance to Elvis, but that's about it. She's a kooky bird.

First, I don't know who is writing for Enty today, but A LOT of vitriol against women is coming out.

Had to be said, for I'm much more comfortable with the big-teddy jest & bacon loving Enty.

And honestly, like with the Jackson family, Elvis died not so rich (but not in tremendous debt either), his family made money in his name post-mortem. From what I can remember, it's Priscilla's wit and uncanny financial decisions that made Graceland what it is today, thus ensuring the Presley name lives on forever, and his descendants to live comfortably for generations to come.

kris said...

hmmmm...I not seeing any vitriol against women today...but, in my eyes enty can do no wrong so I am biased.

I had never heard of another Lisa Marie...how crazy.

MISCH said...

Rita....yes Priscilla did all that...

Bnl1016 said...

i haven't noticed any vitriol against women either.

i read earlier today that this chick refused for years to take a DNA test but now has done so. its all so weird.

Rita said...

don't get me wrong, I love Enty. That is why I'm on this site. that and the crazy fun readers!

But the way he talked of Tracey and Priscilla, truly surprised me. In my mind, that kind of vitriol should be reserved to only 2 women: Paris and Kim.

I actually think they both look like Elvis. Maybe the Swedish Lisa is a secret love child :)

pomme said...

of course! of course! (big eyes,roll eyes!)

Seachica said...

Lisa J looks alot like Elvis. I suspect that she is a love child, and was shipped to Sweden to protect the family inheritance. I don't get why they would ship her abroad to protect her from kidnappers BUT keep a fake Lisa around.

When someone dies, lots of scrupulous people randomly show up with dubious claims. Sometimes they are real; sometimes they aren't; but they are trying to take advantage of people grieving.

crila16 said...

I'm not seeing any vitriol against women either. I guess it's just the ladies in the industry are the ones that are making gossip headlines today. Maybe the men will have their turn next week.

Rita said...

Fine, fine. I'm the sensitive one today. Must be PMSsing flowers and rainbows.

I take it back, although I believe Enty can handle it, he's not one to go all "Kill the Dixie Chicks" if faced with criticism.

I think the woman on the left looks a LOT like Elvis Presley.

The one on the right looks a lot like Priscilla Presley. Of course, there's a lot of surgery happening there, too.

I'd be interested to see the results of a DNA test for both of them.

figgy said...

Is this a newer picture of (the real) Lisa Marie? Cuz she looks like she's had a LOT of plastic surgery there. Sads. I'd hope she'd learn from her own mother's disastrous surgeries.

RocketQueen said...

Okay, crazy lady...
DNA test or zip it.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

It wouldn't surprise me if this was a love child, as Seachica suggested. Three little letters sweetie...DNA

Pookie said...

heee. i'm jumping on maja's theory. =O

Maja. With a J. said...

Awesome! No one EVER jumps on my theories! *L*

AKM said...

I see the Elvis eyes on Lisa, but I'm with RocketQueen. If it's true, put up or shut up. Simple.

mngddess said...

Lisa Marie looks like Wynona Judd in that photo!!

And for all the whoring around that Elvis did, I wouldn't be surprised if there were 5 or 6 kids - maybe more. Love to see some DNA results.

Elvis was one creepy guy.

keks said...

Lisa J does bare some resemblance to Elvis, but Lisa Marie is the spitting image of her father, there is no denying she is the King's daughter. If Lisa J is a love child, I don't know, but saying she is the legitimate child EVERYONE watched grow up all these years is absurd. ¬¬

Lori said...

@keks...agreed.

Sherry said...

On the DNA testing train. If you were so sure you would be begging the other party to do it. Loads of crazies thinking they can get some free cash. Sorry sweetie, ain't gonna happen.

Sherry said...

Now that I look at her picture she looks like ScarJo more than Elvis. Maybe she can go pester that family.

Me said...

can anyone just take a DNA test on anyone? i like the love child theory. but how would this girl know the "real" story?

Tom Paine said...

Remember, Elvis had plastic surgery too.

Lelaina Pierce said...

What RocketQueen said!

gracehatter said...

I love my weekend Enty...I'll take it anyway I can but I'm not noticing any vitriol either.

Squeezebox said...

There was a German woman who claimed for decades that she was Paul McCartney's daughter. She and her mom were so persistent about it, the notoriously cheap Macca even ended up paying child support. When DNA testing finally came into being, she and Paul agreed to have their DNA tested. Surprise, surprise - she wasn't McCartney's daughter after all.

For sheer delusion, this self-proclaimed Lisa Marie has got Macca's "daughter" beat. I wouldn't be surprised if she was trespassed from Graceland after the first theft incident, and that was why she ran into trouble when she visited again this past year.

I wouldn't blame the staff there for not recognizing her as a fraud, either - none of the regular staff who work there has had any relationship with the family. And how often would you expect to have frauds show up and insist they're a member of the family?

Danielle said...

I just wanted to put in my 2 cents and agree with the love child thing. Lisa J really resembles Elvis and his mother. Something in the hairline and eyes.
