Lisa Marie Presley: Why Elvis’ Daughter Is Shunned by Church of Scientology
Lisa Marie Presley has reportedly fallen on hard times after years of drug abuse and custody struggles. It has gotten to the point where mother Priscilla Presley put her mansion up for sale to aid her daughter and stand by her side.
But the daughter of Elvis Presley has had quite the winding path through life to get her to this point. One interesting aspect is her connection to the Church of Scientology, a connection that has caused some trouble for the singer in recent years according to RadarOnline.
Much like former Scientologist Leah Remini, Presley was brought into the church by her mother in 1977. Both mother and daughter were members of the group for decades, taking a charge into a battle for literacy alongside fellow Scientologist Isaac Hayes. The pair of Memphis natives joined forces for the LEAP or Literacy, Education, and Ability Program affiliated with the church.
Throughout the early 2000s, Presley was a vocal member of the church, even testifying in Congress about ADHD medication and her push for literacy. But by 2016, Presley had defected from the church and her mother followed one year later.
“I was slowly starting to self-destruct. They were taking my soul, my money, my everything,’ Lisa Marie Presley said at the time. “I’ve had enough. I’m done.”
Metro adds that leaving Scientology was a family decision and both were “very close” at the time.
The exit from Scientology earned both Lisa Marie and her mother the title of “suppressive person” according to RadarOnline. This means that members, even family members still in the church, cut off all contact from a person.
This seems to be a disputed idea though, because Lisa Marie Presley still has a close relationship with her daughter, Riley Keough, who remains a member of the Church of Scientology alongside her father, Danny Keough.
According to RadarOnline, Riley Keough is trying to get her mother reinstated inside the church and welcome her 10-year-old half-sisters, twins Finley and Harper.- Source
