Lisa Marie Presley is pleading with a judge to shut down her ex-manager’s attempt to see her bank records, relating to her Elvis Presley inheritance.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Presley rushed back to court to argue why her ex-business manager, Barry Siegel, should not see the statements.
Presley and Siegel are in the middle of a nasty legal battle. She accuses him of squandering her $100 million Elvis fortune. He denies the allegations and accuses her of excessive spending. He then counter-sued Presley for $800,000.
Recently, the two have been fighting over subpoenas fired off by Siegel. Deutsche Bank, seeking Presley’s bank records. She says he is seeking, “the production of confidential financial records and/or the financial records of the Promenade Trust.” The Promenade Trust was created to hold the money Presley receives from Elvis’ estate.
In newly filed court docs, Presley says her concerns, “are especially pronounced since she terminated Respondents because of their gross mismanagement of her affairs, and Respondents true purpose for seeking all of Ms. Presley’s post-termination financial records through today is to embarrass her.”
She believes Siegel wants “to use this grossly overbroad subpoena as a tool to further embarrass and harass Mr. Presley.”
Presley wants the court to step in. A judge has yet to rule.
