Weinshanker added that Lisa had also talked about Riley carrying on the legacy. He continued that anyone who was going against that was not looking out for Riley, Lisa, and Elvis. After Weinshanker's comments, Priscilla urged fans to 'ignore the noise' from outsiders concerning the dispute.
She relayed that her daughter was the product of the love she shared with Elvis, and anyone who opposed that was making a mockery.

About The Ongoing Feud Of Lisa's Inheritance
The family feud has been going on for a month after Lisa's memorial service at Graceland. On January 27, 2010, Lisa named her mother, Priscilla, and her former business manager Barry Siegel as trustees. The trust includes the family's Tennessee property Graceland.
A Change Was Effected
However, in 2016, Lisa made a change and removed Priscilla and Siegel as trustees. Instead, she named her children, Benjamin and Riley Keough as her new trustees. Benjamin died by suicide in 2020 which leaves Riley as the sole heir of Graceland.
Priscilla Challenges The Authenticity Of Lisa's Trustee Amendment
Since the contents of Lisa's will were released, Priscilla has adamantly questioned the authenticity of the amendment. She claimed that the signature on the 2016 amendment will be inconsistent with Lisa's. The Naked Gun actress added that the amendment was not delivered to her when Lisa was alive. Another of the 77-year-old suspicions over the amendment was that her name was misspelled.
