Lisa Marie Presley filed for divorce from her ex, Michael Lockwood, back in 2016, but she's still married. She's now asking the court to give her single status.
According to TMZ, Elvis' daughter says Michael, her fourth husband, refuses to sign off on the dissolvent of marriage, so she's filed legal documents to request bifurcation, meaning she wants a judge to declare her single while the rest of the divorce issues are worked out.
Lisa Marie, 53, argues that the marriage is done and steadfastly says there's no chance of a reconciliation. In her request, she says she simply wants to "move forward" with her life.
The drawn-out divorce has been rather nasty. Back in 2018, Michael and his legal team accused Lisa of hiding her assets and her worth. At the time, a judge ordered Lisa to pay her estranged husband $100,000 for his attorney's fees. Lisa, however, argued at the time that she's broke. The same year, Lisa scored a win against her ex when a judge pointed to an "ironclad" post-nuptial agreement they signed in 2007 which stated that she didn't have to pay Michael spousal support.
At the time of the ruling, Michael testified that he didn't even read the postnuptial agreement before signing it. However, the court felt that his argument didn't hold up because he was getting advice from a lawyer, meaning he understood what was happening.
