LISA MARIE PRESLEY‘s daughter RILEY KEOUGH is taking Hollywood by storm — but now the two are at war over the racy roles she’s been choosing.
The 22-year-old model-turned-actress starred as a lesbian werewolf in one film and is about to play a stripper in another. Lisa is said to be furious with Riley and told her it would be ELVIS‘ “worst nightmare” to see his granddaughter in such tawdry movies.
“Lisa is desperately trying to keep control of her daughter, but Riley has decided it’s time to break away from her mother — and, if necessary, the Presley name,” said a family friend.
The battle began when Riley signed on to star as a lesbian werewolf in Jack and Diane.
She assured Lisa Marie, 43, that “it was a small movie and no one would see it.”
But now she’s agreed to play a stripper in a major movie, Magic Mike, which stars MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY, CHANNING TATUM and JOE MANGANIELLO of True Blood.
Lisa Marie exploded when she heard Riley had accepted the job — and Presley matriarch PRISCILLA has now gotten involved in the fray.
“Priscilla told Riley that they’ve worked hard to protect the Presley name, and she could easily spoil it,” said the friend.
But Riley struck back, reminding Priscilla and Lisa Marie that they were both rebellious youngsters.
“Riley had the last word,” noted the friend. “She insisted she was going to play a stripper because it was a great part — and there was nothing they could do about it!”
