Lisa Marie was also involved with Scientology for a long time and I am quite certain they took a lot of her money as well. I believe she finally got out of there as did her mother.

She had a tough childhood. Can't imagine what it would be like to be an only child of someone that famous, and on top of that, be stuck between two warring parents.

"As a child, Presley lived two lives: one of discipline around her mother, and one that perhaps echoed the adult undercurrents of loneliness and indulgence at Graceland. 'There was nobody looking after me, and everyone was afraid of my dad, and he was sleeping. So if that was the case, I was a tyrant. . . . If he was sleeping, which he mostly was during the day, I could do whatever until I was ordered to his room if I pushed it too far. I was awful. People would give me cameras to go and take pictures, and I'd take money and I'd say I was going to take a picture of my dad, and then I'd throw the camera somewhere. I was awful. The fans were always in the trees in the woods and getting me to come over to the fence when I'd be in my golf cart, and I would do stuff and throw things. It was weird, because sometimes I'd be playing and I'd hear basically a call to arms -- 'someone jumped the fence' -- and they were always jumping the fence, and I was definitely afraid: whether they were coming after me, or they'd say, 'Hi, I'm Priscilla, and I'm ready to have my dinner', and it was a man. There was all kinds of crazy stuff going on'."

No kidding! It boggles the brain, doesn't it? I don't understand it, either.

I didn't know about the Scientology association. Now I am beginning to see how Lisa Marie Presley and a good deal of her money were parted...

I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for Lisa Marie Presley, either, living under a microscope that way...I feel badly for her.
