So, check this out – Riley Keough and Priscilla Presley did a total 180 on their family drama and rolled up together at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards. Riley, who got nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series for “Daisy Jones & the Six,” didn’t snag the win, but she brought some serious star power to the event.
Family Feud Turned Friendly
Let’s rewind a bit. Last year, Riley and Priscilla were in the middle of some serious family legal battles over Lisa Marie Presley’s estate. When Lisa Marie passed in 2023, Riley and her twin sisters, Harper and Finley Lockwood, inherited the legendary Graceland estate and more. But drama alert – Priscilla not vibing with a 2016 amendment in Lisa Marie’s will that replaced her as co-trustee with Riley and her late brother, Benjamin Keough.
Legal Mess to Chill Vibes
Fast forward to April this year, and things were pretty tense. Riley reportedly upset, and the family vibe more drama than chill. But by May, a settlement happened, and a source spilled the tea to Us Weekly, saying Riley and Priscilla found common ground that made them both happy. Priscilla also clarified there no lawsuit against Riley, and the family just trying to sort things out after Lisa Marie’s passing.
Riley Takes the Estate Lead
By October, the deal sealed. Riley became the sole trustee of the estate and the owner of Graceland. Priscilla stepped down but not empty-handed – she snagged a cool $1 million in the process. So, family drama sorted, right?
Emmys Glam with Chanel Vibes
Fast forward again to the Emmys, and Riley and Priscilla were strolling down the red (or silver) carpet in matching Chanel black dresses. Riley, now a house ambassador for Chanel since October, spilled the tea to Entertainment Tonight. She said it “very special” having Priscilla by her side at the Emmys. With a big smile, she added, “I’m here with my grandmother and my husband [Ben Smith-Petersen], and I feel lucky to have my family here to support me.”
In a nutshell, from legal battles to glam Emmys appearances, Riley and Priscilla flipped the script on their family drama. And who can resist a matching Chanel moment on the red carpet?
