Michael Lookwood under investigation

Lisa Marie Presley’s separated husband, Michael Lockwood, is being investigated at the moment for unproven child abuse. The Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed this on Friday, February 17th.

According to a announcement that Beverly Hills Police Sergeant Max Subin released Friday, the division “was notified of alleged child abuse involving the Presley family” back in June 2016. “It was then quickly determined the allegations stemmed from activity originating in the state of Tennessee,” the statement continues. “The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI) was notified and immediately responded to California to initiate their own investigation.”

The Beverly Hills Police Department was only tangled with the situation because the Presley family was staying in the city at the time the accusations were received. Upon receiving the claims, it issued a search authorization for a home that “led to the seizure of several items pursuant to the warrant.”

The duo’s 8-year-old twin daughters have allegedly been put in protective care after Presley demanded in court papers linked to the couple’s divorce that she had found “disturbing” pictures of children on a computer owned by Lockwood.

The documents also claim that police has more than 80 devices in custody from her husband.

“It is believed there is no criminal activity related to these allegations in the City of Beverly Hills,” Sergeant Subin’s statement continues. “We are currently working with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations to evaluate the evidence. Based on the fact this is an open investigation, the Beverly Hills Police Department has no further information to provide.”

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations is currently researching, and said to Fox 13 Memphis in a declaration that, “as with any matter potentially involving the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, our Agents first work in the spirit of due diligence, to determine whether a crime occurred and whether it occurred in Tennessee. At this point, in this matter, we’ve yet to determine that to be the case. The work, however, to review potential evidence that might suggest otherwise continues. At this point, the TBI has not opened an official case in connection to this matter.”

In court documents from February 7th, Elvis Presley’s only daughter said she was “shocked and horrified and sick to my stomach” when she found the pictures on the computer from her fourth husband.

Lockwood’s lawyer is Jeff Sturman and he denied Presley’s claims in a statement, saying the singer’s filing is “very unfortunate and inappropriate.”

“Ms. Presley and her lawyers undoubtedly knew that their highly sensational, inaccurate and unproven claims would be of great interest to the media, which would disseminate Ms. Presley’s inaccurate story as a result. To make matters worse, Ms. Presley failed to disclose very important information in the papers she filed in the Family Law Court and the things she failed to disclose are directly related to her inflammatory claims against Mr. Lockwood. Mr. Lockwood is not going to publicly disclose very negative information about Ms. Presley to retaliate,” he continued. “Mr. Lockwood and his lawyers did not choose to litigate these personal matters in the press. Therefore, while Mr. Lockwood denies the truth of what Ms. Presley chose to put in the press, he has no further statement at this time.”
