Lisa Marie Presley fights to seal child custody records

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle for some time now. In a recent development, Presley asked the court to seal all records in her child custody case. Her estranged husband, music manager Michael Lockwood, opposes that move. Illinois readers may be interested to learn that the court has sided with Presley, at least on a temporary basis, and the records will be sealed until a permanent decision is reached. 

Presley claims that she found disturbing images of children on her husband's computer. That's the basis of the request for privacy. She asserts that details will arise during the course of the child custody case that the media will share with the public, and she wants her daughters to be shielded from access to that information. 

There's no word on why Lockwood opposes the move. It's possible that he believes that Presley's legal team won't focus on those allegations if there's a chance the children will one day read about it. He might also feel that he has done nothing wrong, and that sealing the records makes it appear as though there's something to hide. 

A judge will make a final decision on the matter in the coming weeks. Should the records be sealed, Illinois readers may hear few details concerning the high profile divorce and child custody matter. At the end of the day, that might be best for the children at the center of the case, twin girls who are now just 9 years old.
