A furious Lisa Marie Presley exploded in rage after her late father Elvis’ purported secret “love child” daringly moved into his beloved Graceland to lay claim to the $550 million Presley family fortune!
In a bombshell world exclusive, only The National ENQUIRER was on hand to snap the first photos of the woman – Lisa Johansen – taking over Lisa Marie’s famed former home.
“This is Lisa Marie’s worst nightmare come true! She’s absolutely sick of this woman claiming to be Elvis’ real daughter,” a Presley family source told The ENQUIRER. “The fact that Lisa Johansen had the guts to show up at Graceland – the mansion where Lisa Marie spent her childhood and lived through her father’s tragic death – is sickening to Lisa Marie!
“She snapped to a friend, ‘How dare she!’” the source revealed. “Lisa Marie doesn’t want this woman anywhere near Graceland – or have her further attempt to destroy her memories of her father!”
The ENQUIRER revealed in a blockbuster special report last year that Johansen – a married mother of four with a law degree living in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – was bidding to oust Lisa Marie from the King’s estate.
In an outrageous claim that infuriated both Lisa Marie and her mother, Priscilla Presley, Johansen claimed she had proof she is Elvis’ real daughter – and that the woman known around the world as Lisa Marie was, in fact, an imposter!
Johansen’s legal battle began in 2011, when she named Priscilla as a defendant in a $130 million civil lawsuit, claiming the woman now known as Lisa Marie replaced her in a complex, bizarre and secretive child-swap at age 9.
While the case was dismissed, Johansen is considering an appeal.
Johansen said the hidden switch was made for security reasons after Elvis’ death on Aug. 16, 1977, when she was spirited away from his gated, 13-acre estate in Memphis, Tenn., to Scandinavia.
While in Sweden, she was replaced by an imposter, Johansen claimed.
That young lady – now known by the name Lisa Marie – grew up in the public eye, maturing into a rebellious teen who went on to marry Michael Jackson, as well as three other men.
While lisa marie’s lawyers have blasted Johansen as “delusional” and making “malicious claims,” The ENQUIRER has exclusively reviewed some of the “proof” of her true identity: a set of candid photos that appear to depict an ongoing relationship between Johansen and her family and members of the Presley clan.
One photo shows Johansen with Priscilla’s late brother, Tom Beaulieu, while another shows Johansen’s children with Priscilla and her mother, Ann Beaulieu.
A third photo shows another Johansen child with Benjamin Keough, 22 – the son of Lisa Marie, 47, and her first husband, Danny Keough.
As The ENQUIRER reported, Johansen said she was born Feb. 1, 1968, to “Priscilla Ann Beaulieu and Elvis Aaron Presley,” and described her childhood at Graceland as a “fairy tale with my father as the king and myself as the pampered princess.”
After Elvis died, she described placing a baseball glove in her father’s casket.
But she said she remembered little after the funeral until Priscilla spirited her off to Europe.
While in Sweden, Johansen claimed that Priscilla told her she was going to live with a foster family, and warned her not to tell anyone her true identity for her own safety.
“You will be called Sari – Sari Rosenquist,” she claimed Priscilla told her.
At first, Johansen said Priscilla would call to check on her, but as the years passed the contact became less frequent.
Now, in a stunning new development that has rocked Lisa Marie to her core, Johansen made a secret pilgrimage to Graceland on Aug. 14, walking through the mansion, and laying flowers on the King’s grave in honor of the 38th anniversary of his sudden death.
“It was highly emotional for Johansen as she went through the house,” an eyewitness told The ENQUIRER. “She became overwhelmed – as if she had ‘moved into’ Graceland.”
Johansen later told The ENQUIRER: “Being there, so many memories came rushing back to me in a flood of emotions. I could barely hold back my tears.
“My father’s estate has been hijacked, and his last will is being violated. I will never go away or stop telling the truth. My father taught me better than that,” she added, angrily.
“I am absolutely confident that I will right this wrong. Every single Elvis fan is the victim of a scam because I have not rightfully been declared as his child.”
Explained the family insider: “When spies later told Lisa Marie that Lisa Johansen went to Graceland, it made her blood boil.
“She’s sick of this woman claiming to be her – and now going to Graceland.”
