Lisa Marie was heavily in debt at the time of her death. RadarOnline.com obtained court records that showed she owed $3-$4 million to various creditors. However, she took out various life insurance policies that paid out $35 million to her trust after her death.

The only beneficiaries to the trust are Riley and her younger twin sisters, Harper and Finley.

In her petition, Priscilla claimed Lisa Marie’s will put her and her late daughter’s ex-biz manager Barry Siegel in charge of the trust. She said an alleged 2016 amendment was floating around that put Riley in charge and kicked her out.

Priscilla said the settlement agreement should be sealed because it contains “private details regarding my daughter’s Trust that is to benefit my two (2) minor granddaughters. If this information were to become public, it could put me and my family’s safety at risk. This would subject me to significant danger, emotional distress, and negatively affect my physical and mental health. It would also subject my son and minor granddaughters to harassment and bullying. We have all been thought enough.”

Despite their attempts to keep the information sealed, the amount paid out was revealed.
