Riley Keough looked stunning when she hit the red carpet Thursday night for the Los Angeles premiere of her highly anticipated new show, “Daisy Jones & the Six.”

Fans of the hit novel by Taylor Jenkins Reed are eagerly awaiting the on-screen version starring Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, which will debut on Amazon Prime on March 3.

Elsewhere, Keough, 33, was on a huge promotional tour, but was still reeling from the sudden death of her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, 54, just six weeks earlier from cardiac arrest. The actress was so overcome at her mother’s funeral that her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, read her eulogy, in which she announced the surprise arrival of their baby girl, Tupelo.

Her appearance at the London premiere of “Daisy” on Feb. 16 was canceled and other press tours were carefully orchestrated, with reporters telling Keough wouldn’t be answering questions about her mother — or her grandmother, Priscilla Presley.

In a shocking move, days after Lisa Marie’s death, Priscilla filed a petition in Los Angeles questioning the “validity and validity” of the 2016 amendment to Lisa Marie’s trust and estate. The amendment named Keogh as the controller of the fund, which includes Graceland, the Memphis tourist glitzy mansion of Lisa Marie’s father, Elvis Presley, and 15% ownership of the legendary late singer’s estate.

Amid a report that Keough found her at odds now, longtime friend Lisa Marie confirmed to Page Six: “Riley and Priscilla don’t talk. Their relationship is changing, it’s true… It’s very sad. This is when Riley will really need her grandmother.”

Elvis fans bombarded her Instagram, imploring her to “take care” of Graceland.

One even wrote, “Don’t let your grandma win. Follow your mom’s wishes,” while another commented: “You’re the rightful owner of Graceland Riley never stop fighting for what’s yours. Your mom and grandpa both want Graceland to be yours.”

“In essence, there shouldn’t be an infighting within the family over the trust that was always supposed to go to Riley and Benjamin,” said Graceland’s source. “Lisa was supposed to outlive her mother.”

As Friends already said on Page Six, Lisa Marie would be “angry” depending on the situation. Joel Weinshanker, managing partner at Elvis Presley Enterprises, told SiriusXM’s Elvis Radio that Lisa Marie was “very certain” that her estate should be left to her children, adding: “[It] It was always Riley and Ben.

“There was never any question in her mind that they would be the judges, that they would look at it the exact same way I did…even though Riley is a movie star.” [and] An award-winning manager, she always had an interest and always knew that one day, she’d be in charge of [things]. “

Graceland’s source told Page Six, “Why does Priscilla feel like she’s best suited to run things? Why does she feel like she should take charge?”

Priscilla, meanwhile, explained that she feels it is necessary, saying, “Please ignore the ‘noise’. Because I’ve always been there for Elvis’ legacy, our family, and the fans, I will continue to forge a path forward with respect, honesty, dignity, integrity, and love.”

Keough spent much of 2022 in the company of her mother and grandmother while promoting the movie “Elvis” alongside actor Austin Butler who plays the King and director Baz Luhrmann.

Lisa Marie’s last major public appearance was at the Golden Globes, just four days before her death, with Priscilla. But, as Page Six previously reported, they didn’t want to sit down together because their relationship was so fraught.

However, with Butler winning the Academy Award for Best Actor on March 12 after winning Golden Globes and BAFTAs, Priscilla is set to appear at the awards show. “Lisa was really looking forward to the Oscars,” the friend said. In fact, Lisa Marie posted online last May: “If he doesn’t get an Oscar for this, I’m going to eat my own feet, haha.”
