  • Lisa Marie Presley says she has only $14,000 of Elvis's cash left and sues former manager

    02/23/2018 10:33:10 PM PST · by ameribbean expat · 65 replies
    Elvis’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, inherited his $100m (£71.5m) estate in 1993 at the age of 25. Another 25 years later, she says in a lawsuit obtained by US media that she is down to her last $14,000. Presley blames her former manager Barry Siegel for her precarious finances, and filed a suit last week against him accusing him of “reckless and negligent mismanagement” of her inherited estate. In the suit, first reported by the US website the Blast, she claims that her cash reserves were whittled down because of Seigel’s poor investment decisions. He has countered that Presley is...

    Lisa Marie Presley is about to file a lawsuit against her former financial managers, claiming they squandered more than $100 million over 10 years, but the company says Lisa Marie is broke because she's a spendthrift. TMZ has obtained a copy of the lawsuit which could be filed as early as today. She claims financial guru Barry Siegel sold 85% of her interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE) and then gave the money to Robert F.X. Sillerman as a way of ingratiating himself with the famous investor. She says the investments tanked and left her broke. Among the alleged misdeeds...

    “Ann-Margret does not discuss Elvis and not because she bears him any ill will,” Mankiewicz told Fox News. “Quite to the contrary, she is very eager to protect Elvis’ legacy and she thinks, correctly, that the media and others... sort of pick away at his legacy because we’re so desperate for information on him. And I suspect she thinks his career was mishandled by [manager] Colonel Tom Parker.

    Like Elvis, Donald Trump brings his own style to the stage, an energetic, in-your-face, New York style that drowns out the classic pop tunes of the day Rock & roll (R&R) exploded onto the music scene in the 50s and ignited a cultural revolution. New sounds with irresistible rhythms swept teenagers up in a whirlwind of passion. But parents of those excited teens weren’t so enamored with the new hip. In fact, they went from parental coaxing, to stern warnings, to banning the music altogether. But Rock & Roll was here to stay. Prior to Elvis, kids sorta, kinda listened...
