Lisa Marie Presley asks judge to ‘declare her officially single’ from estranged husband of five years because he ‘refuses’ to divorce

Lisa Marie Presley wants to ‘move forward’ with her life and officially cut ties with her estranged husband Michael Lockwood.

The 53-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley filed new court documents requesting that a judge officially declare her single – a somewhat common practice in long drawn out divorces – despite her ex’s refusal to ‘terminate their marriage.’

In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Lisa Marie lays out a grim future for her relationship telling the court that there is no hope for the couple to reconcile.

According to the documents, Lisa Marie has been wanting to end her marriage since filing for divorce in June of 2016 but Lockwood ‘refuses’.

Presley is now requesting a bifurcation, ‘which means separating marital status from other divorce issues’. If her request is granted she and Michael will both be deemed single in the eyes of the law while they hash out the details of their divorce.

The singer-songwriter said in the documents that she wants the bifurcation ‘so that I can move forward with my life.’

Lockwood and Presley were married for a decade from 2006-2010 and they share 12-year-old twins Finley and Harper.

Back in November, Lisa Marie appeared in court for a hearing as part of her divorce proceedings to decide who gets custody of their daughters. 

In court documents, Lockwood, 59, has accused Presley – who was raised as a Scientologist – of using a Church of Scientology tactic called ‘Fair Gaming’ to drive a wedge between him and his daughters.

And he also attacked Lisa Marie’s lawyers for ‘hyper-aggressive litigation’ in the divorce and custody case, with ‘hearings spurred by baseless salacious allegations’.

After Presley’s 27-year-old son Benjamin Keough committed suicide in July, Lockwood claimed in legal documents that Lisa Marie’s heartbreak over the tragedy could send her back to the drugs and alcohol she claims she’s been free of for three years. 

Presley has been married four times and had four children. She married singer Danny Keough in 1988 and they shared Danielle Riley Keough – movie star Riley Keough – and Benjamin. They divorced in 1994.

That same year, she married Michael Jackson but they divorced two years later. Her third marriage, in 2002 to actor Nicolas Cage, also barely lasted two years. She wed Lockwood in 2006 and they separated, and filed for divorce, in 2016.
