After moving from Tennessee to California, Elvis Presley's troubled daughter was rushed to the ER "due to medical problems related to substance abuse," according to explosive court documents obtained by Radar.
As readers know, a tortured Lisa Marie herself admitted in a 2017 deposition she was “abusing cocaine terribly” in 2015 as well as being a heavy user of opioids, painkillers and alcohol. She also admitted she had been so whacked out she couldn’t even remember how many times she had been to rehab, saying it was three, four or five times.
The shocking report obtained exclusively by Radar reveal the drug confessions Lisa Marie made in interviews as part of a child services investigation during her divorce from ex husband Michael Lockwood.
While she denied ever doing drugs in front of their twin girls, Harper and Finley, Lisa Marie admitted she “had a serious substance abuse problem that started around 2012,” documents reveal.
The report notes Lisa Marie said that from October 2015 until June 2016 she was “using a significant amount of drugs and staying in bed a lot.”
She also confessed “she started using cocaine to counteract the effect of the pills,” and as a result, she admitted she would “go for days without sleeping.”
After her secret 2016 hospitalization, she entered a rehab treatment facility and her mother, Priscilla Presley, took temporary custody of the children, documents obtained by Radar reveal.
A source who shared time at the facility with the pill-popping beauty said Lisa Marie confessed the failure of her marriage drove her into despair and into treatment, which also offered psychological and behavioral counseling to beat her addictions.
Lisa Marie now claims she’s been sober for two years, and in July 2017 she “expressed regret that her drug use interfered with her being a good mother … because she was in bed a lot and not fully functioning,” according to records of her testimony.
But sources fear Lisa Marie will always be at risk of relapsing because she’s surrounded by enablers and has gone to great lengths to hide her drug abuse from perhaps the only person who could save her — her mother.
