Priscilla Presley isn't backing down over her claim to Lisa Marie Presley's will, and now she and her eldest granddaughter Riley Keough are no longer on talking terms due to the ongoing legal battle.

Keep reading for the details.

Priscilla Presley's First Move

Priscilla made the very first move of contending the 2016 amendment to her daughter's will, with the late Benjamin and Riley Keough as co-trustees and successors. With the death of Benjamin in 2020, Lisa Marie's entire fortune now belongs to Keough.

According to Priscilla, the document isn't authentic. She was made the trustee of the will until this amendment happened in 2016. She claimed the document had been tampered with and cited that Lisa Marie's name and signature were inconsistent.

Riley And Priscilla Are Not Talking

A source close to the family told news outlets that Priscilla is hell-bent on proving that she has a valid case and will win in court. It added that they've now resorted to communicating through lawyers.

Riley Is Heartbroken

The source continued Keough would prefer to sort out the issue privately and out of court, but Priscilla isn't backing down.

"She is heartbroken that this has turned into a public matter and knows her mother would never want this, the source added, while noting that Priscilla has remained convinced that old documents had been forged."

Lisa And Her Mother Were Not Close

Her exception from the will doesn't surprise most, as sources have revealed that the late Lisa Marie has been estranged from her mother for the last two years.

Priscilla Told Fans To Ignore The Noise

Earlier this month, the 77-year-old encouraged fans to ignore the noise surrounding the ongoing case and reiterated her commitment to ensuring that the family stays together, but that's not looking feasible as it stands.

Riley Is Trying To Keep Her Head Up

Keough is reportedly trying to keep a positive demeanor through it all, although the stress of having to bury two loved ones in the past three years is taking a toll on her.

Missing A Major Event

The ongoing battle is costing Riley everything, as she even had to miss the UK premiere of her latest film Daisy Jones & The Six, on Thursday.

She hopped on Instagram to express her fear of missing out as co-stars Suki Waterhouse, and Camila Morrone carried on without her.
