NASHVILLE, Tennessee: A Swedish woman claiming to be Elvis Presley's long-lost daughter has filed a $130 million lawsuit against his estate and relatives for defamation and emotional distress.
Lisa Johansen, who is 43 years old, claims to be the true daughter of Elvis Presley.
She filed a lawsuit in US District Court in Memphis, Tennessee on November 21. The suit stemmed from a visit Johansen made to Graceland in August 1992, with her husband and four children to commemorate the anniversary of Presley's death.
Within days of the family's visit, Presley’s attorney Martin Singer sent a letter to Johansen's legal representative, stating that she had engaged in “outlandish, bizarre and fraudulent conduct,” by boasting to Graceland staff about her close relationship with the Presley family.
Singer dismissed her claims, saying “Lisa Johansen's strange obsession with my client's family and her outlandish claims to be the 'real' Lisa Marie Presley completely eviscerate Lisa Johansen's credibility.”
