When you think of Lisa Marie Presley, you, of course, think about the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, but there is a lot more to the rocker than just that. Lisa Marie is a mother-of-four and has been married four times — most recently to Michael Lockwood.
The pair tied the knot in January 2006 in Kyoto, Japan. While it was Lisa Marie’s fourth time down the aisle, it was the first “I do” for the musician. They stayed together until 2016 when Lisa Marie filed for divorce and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split.
“He apparently was in charge of her assets throughout the marriage and didn’t do what he should have done on a fiduciary basis.” the songwriter’s legal rep Ronald Litz told People at the time. “He took advantage of her.”
Although they divorced, Lisa Marie and Michael still manage to have a healthy coparenting relationship for their 11-year-old twin daughters, Finley and Harper. “They came as a blessing in the middle of all this destruction,” the “So Lovely” singer once explained about having children. “Everyone was leaving my life, although that was people exposing themselves for what they were. So there was good light in the tunnel.”
Michael, who graduated from Highland High School in Bakersfield, California, in 1979, used music to make a living. He is a producer, guitarist and has worked with many notable musicians, including Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann, Carly Simon, Ben Taylor and Lisa Marie. When the “Lights Out” singer kicked off her Storm & Grace tour in Australia in 2012, Michael accompanied her as the lead guitarist in the band.
However, that wasn’t his first time rocking out on stage. In 1985, the musician was part of the group Lions & Ghosts, who were later signed to EMI America Records. In 1989, they released their first album, Wild Garden, which sadly didn’t sell very well. By the early ’90s, the group disbanded and Michael embarked on a solo career. Although he was doing well for himself, Michael hasn’t worked with any new artists since he came back home from Lisa Marie’s Storm & Grace tour.
The rocker found new love after his split from Lisa Marie with Stephanie Hobgood. Michael popped the question to Stephanie in December 2018 while they were having dinner in Los Angeles. Since then, the pair have been planning their wedding and focusing on making a life together.
