Many of us wish to be related to one famous personality or the other. Still, some people are already living that reality, and one of them is Finley Aaron Love Lockwood. Finley Aaron is one of four children born to Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of the late king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley. It, therefore, means that Finley and her siblings are the only grandchildren of the late Elvis. They have led a luxurious lifestyle not far away from the spotlight, but the family has endured many heartbreaks, including their parents’ divorce and the death of her half-brother.
Finley is Lisa Marie Presley’s Daughter with Her 4th Husband – Michael Lockwood
Finley Aaron Love Lockwood was born on the 7th day of October 2008 in California. This makes her only about 13 years old, but she is already a well-known personality, thanks to her heritage. Finley’s mother is Lisa Marie Presley, the only child that the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, had while he was alive with his wife, Priscilla (Finley’s maternal grandmother). Lisa Marie was only about eight years old when her father died, and she inherited portions of his estate.
She later became his sole heir and inherited an estate worth about $100 million then. Despite having a magnificent inheritance, Finley’s mom was determined to make it on her terms and went on to make a mark as a musician and philanthropist. On the other hand, Finley Aaron’s dad is a music producer and guitarist Michael Lockwood. Lockwood is a native of California and tried his hands at playing with his band before becoming a producer and guitarist for other musicians.
One of those that he worked with was Lisa Marie, and they began dating between 2004 and 2005. They later got married on the 22nd day of January 2006. The couple was married for about two years before they gave birth to fraternal twin girls, namely Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann, in October 2008.
Her Parents Divorced in 2016 After 10 Years of Marriage
Finley Aaron Love and her twin sister, Harper Vivienne Ann, had a blissful childhood in the first few years of birth. They got to live in lavish homes in places such as San Francisco and Sussex, England. The twins were also never in short supply of relatives who lavished love and attention on them. They were raised far from the spotlight but were dragged right into the middle of it following their parents’ divorce in 2016. Finley’s mother first filed for divorce and informed the courts that the marriage had broken down irretrievably. She accused Finley’s father of being a poor parent and taking advantage of her financially and asked for full custody of the girls.
Their divorce brought a high level of attention to Finley Aaron and her twin sister. Things worsened after reports claimed they were taken out of their home and placed in protective custody by the Department of Child and Family Services. That was in February 2017, and their mother alleged that this was because hundreds of photos and videos of child sexual abuse and neglect were discovered on their father’s computer by the Beverly Hills Police Department. Finley’s father vehemently denied these allegations, and her maternal grandmother, Priscilla, came out to say that the girls were with her.
Finley and her sister were eventually returned to the joint custody of their parents. Meanwhile, their parent continued battling their divorce in court, disagreeing over whether spousal support should be paid or not. The former couple also clashed over custody as each wanted to be granted full custody of the kids. Such conflict between the parties had a detrimental effect on Finley and her twin sister, but they hung in there as they had no choice. Their parents’ divorce was later finalized in 2021, and joint custody was given to both parents. Finley and her sister now split their time between their mother’s home and their father’s home.
Finley’s Elder Half-Sister, Danielle Riley, is a Model and Acclaimed Actress
Asides from her twin sister, Finley Aaron Love Lockwood also has two elder half-siblings from her mother’s first marriage to a musician, Danny Keough, in 1988. That marriage lasted for six years and produced two children, namely Danielle Riley Keough (born 19th May 1989) and Benjamin Storm Keough (born 21st October 1992). Danielle is an actress and a model. She has walked the runway at fashion shows by Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior. She has also appeared on the cover of notable magazines such as Vogue.
Danielle has also appeared in movies, such as Mad Max: Fury Road, American Honey, Logan Lucky, It Comes at Night, Magic Mike, Hold The Dark, and The Lodge. She has received several accolades over the course of her career, including a Golden Globe nomination for best performance by an actress in a limited series made for TV in 2010 and the Independent Spirit Award nomination for the best supporting female in 2017. Danielle Riley is married to professional movie stunts man Ben Smith-Petersen. They met during the filming of Mad Max: Fury Road and tied the in February 2015.
Her Elder Brother, Benjamin Keough, Committed Suicide in July 2020
The protracted divorce between Finley’s parents was a tough one for her and her sister, but they experienced tremendous grief when their elder half-brother, Benjamin Keough, passed away amid the whole thing. Born on the 21st day of October 1992, Benjamin bore a striking resemblance to his famous granddad but avoided the spotlight. He only featured in just one short animation and a 2005 documentary honoring his grandfather. He also landed a recording deal worth $5 million but never released any singles.
Benjamin occasionally appeared at public events but kept his personal life private. It seemed that he had some issues, as he took his own life in July 2020. The death devastated Finley and her sister as they were close to their big brother. It also shattered their mom’s heart, and her manager later revealed that she was heartbroken, inconsolable, and beyond devastated. According to the statement, she adored Benjamin as he was the love of her life. However, she had to be strong for the sake of Finley and her sister.
Finley and Her Twin Sister Are Experiencing Life and are Talented in Ballet, Dance, and Opera
It has been a tough couple of months for Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and her twin sister, Harper, but they are moving on. The girls, who are both of school age, live their lives out of the spotlight, but their mother occasionally shares some sweet snaps of them on social media. It is also the same with their elder sister, Danielle, who loves them to bits. Another person showing a lot of love for Finley Aaron and her twin sister is their maternal grandmother, Priscilla. She is quite proud of them and has revealed to the world that they are so smart for their age and understand technology even better than her.
She has also shared that they are talented in ballet, dance, and opera. Finley and her sister are not being forced into doing anything they don’t want. For instance, their grannie has revealed that they are allowed to listen to any genre of music they like, and nobody forces them to listen to their grandfather’s song. Nonetheless, both girls respect their grandfather’s legacy and are in awe of all the people who routinely troop out to honor him at vigils.
