Michael and his family are feeling the pain of Lisa's demise, which he made known in a recent statement to People. The American guitarist revealed he and his twin daughters Harper and Finley were "reeling" from Lisa's sudden death.

On January 12, 2023, first responders were called to Lisa's home in Calabasas, California, after she went into full cardiac arrest. Upon arrival, they performed CPR before rushing the singer to the singer. Unfortunately, Lisa died shortly after.

Who Will Get Custody Of The Girls?

Since Lisa's demise, the topic of child custody has been up for discussion. Recently, Entertainment Lawyer Mitra Ahourian revealed Michael would likely get full custody of Finley and Harper, as he is their biological father.

Mitra also pointed out that Danny Keough, who shared two other kids with Lisa, stood a chance because he was in the same home with the late singer as a stepfather to the twins. However, Mitra believed the court would rule in Michael's favor.

Lawyer Believes The Biological Parent Should Have Full Custody

According to him, there was a high possibility that the court would consider the fact that a biological parent should have 100 percent custody and the ability to make all the important decisions in their children's lives, like where they should school and live.

Meanwhile, until the court decides otherwise, reports reveal Michael has legal and physical custody of his girls. Undoubtedly, the doting father will do whatever it takes to keep it that way.
