Lisa Marie Presley

From Academic Kids

Lisa Marie Presley (born February 1, 1968) is an American singer, daughter of the singer Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla.

A close friend of her father's ex-girfriend Linda Thompson, in 2003, after advice from Thompson's record producer husband David Foster, she launched a career as a singer. Her debut album is called To Whom It May Concern, reaching #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. To promote this, she has performed in a concert in the UK — something her father never did. She released her second album in 2005, called Now What. It reached #9 on the Billboard 200.

Marriages & divorces

She married her first husband, Danny Keough, on October 3, 1988. Together, they have two children, Danielle Riley (born May 19, 1989) and Benjamin Storm (born October 21, 1992). Presley divorced Keough on May 6, 1994.

Two weeks later she shocked the world by marrying Michael Jackson on May 18, 1994. The marriage lasted 18 months. Lisa has since said she felt Jackson used her to try to head off accusations of child sexual abuse. There's speculation that Jackson, who owns The Beatles catalog, wanted to buy Elvis's catalog. The two divorced on January 18, 1996.

On August 10 2002, she married Nicolas Cage, someone well-known for his Elvis-obsession. They were together for just 3 months. They divorced in 2002, and Cage has since remarried.

Lisa is currently dating her guitarist, Michael Lockwood.
