“She knows her documented history as a drug addict has left her extremely vulnerable in court, and she’s praying this will help her case!” said a source close to Elvis Presley’s pill-popping daughter.
Insiders told Radar Lisa Marie has been in outpatient treatment for at least two months, and she’s turned down invitations to star-studded parties to focus on her sobriety.
The news comes just one day after Radar revealed a judge ruled that LMP’s twin daughters will see a mental health expert amid new allegations of abuse as she continues her fight against her estranged husband over custody of their children.
Both Lisa Marie, 50, and the girls’ father, Michael Lockwood, 57, faced serious allegations of abuse concerning their daughters, which were previously litigated in the Juvenile Dependency Court.
On Monday, December 10 Judge Thomas Trent Lewis ordered a custody evaluation on Harper and Finley, who would be seen by a mental health expert, which usually would be a psychologist. The expert would then provide a report and recommendation to the court on who will get custody of the children and how custody should be divided.
As Radar readers know, Lisa Marie was forced to admit to being a cocaine addict n her divorce with her soon-to-be-ex-husband and has been through a revolving door of treatment facilities!
“The last year of our marriage, I was abusing cocaine terribly,” she revealed in a 2017 court deposition.
She scored a victory in August when a judge ruled she didn’t have to pay child support to Michael for their ten-year-old twins.
A source close to the singer insisted she’s been sober for two years, but Lisa Marie was a no-show at a Washington, D.C., event honoring her late father.
Meanwhile, in a shocking development, Lisa Marie’s claims her ex-business manager burned through her $100 million inheritance and left her broke were found to be false!
Her troubled past has even forced her 73-year-old mom, Priscilla Presley, to shut her out!
“Priscilla’s resorted to tough love to set her straight,” snitched a spy.
“Lisa’s convinced sobriety will prove to everyone she’s serious about being a responsible mom,” said the source.
Presley and her ex have been embroiled in a nasty divorce since May 2016. On Monday, the judge set a January hearing date concerning Presley’s request for order on the custody issue, which could take up 10 days.
