Priscilla Presley Reveals She Has Lisa Marie's Kids Amid Child Abuse Allegations

Lisa Marie Presley's twin daughters have been placed in the custody of child protective services in California in the wake of images of children being found on her ex-husband, Michael Lockwood's computer.

Police officers in Beverly Hills have since confirmed they received child abuse allegations involving the family in the summer (16), and they referred the investigation to authorities in Tennessee.

Additionally, Lisa Marie revealed that her eight-year-old twin daughters with Michael, 55, are now in state custody, but did not clarify as to why.

This story first appeared at Womanista.

"Mr. Lockwood and his lawyers believe that it is very unfortunate and inappropriate that Ms. Presley chose to file a one-sided, inaccurate version of the facts in the Family Law Court's publicly accessible files", he tells PEOPLE in a statement.

Presley says she was "shocked and horrified and sick to [her] stomach" when she discovered the photos.

Last June, Priscilla Presley's daughter filed for divorce from her fourth husband after more than 10 years of marriage. The claims will be addressed in a trial in March, according to Presley. In the documents, she asked that the court deny her estranged husband's request for $40,000 per month in spousal support and $100,000 in attorney fees-citing the photos and a prenuptial agreement.

But Presley claims she owes millions of dollars in taxes and on credit cards, after her money was mishandled by a business manager.

At this stage, there is no clarity on why the children have been removed from Presley's custody and it does not appear as if she's going to open up about it.

Presley suffered several miscarriages over two years before welcoming healthy twin daughters Harper and Finley in 2008. "There were a couple of relationships I was a little taken aback by, but I don't think I showed it too much..."

"I can not recall the last time I spent money on clothes and shoes of any value", she told the court. "We both married young and Lisa experienced Michael's fame just as I experienced Elvis's".

The next hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
