Grieving Lisa Marie Presley arrives at court for divorce trial with Michael ...

Lisa Marie Presley’s divorce trial has started today, four years after she split from her fourth husband Michael Lockwood and just three weeks after the tragic death of her son Benjamin Keough.

The grieving mother - now 52 - showed up at the courthouse in downtown LA on Monday looking somber and wearing a black pantsuit, black mask and dark glasses.

Alongside her was a tall, burly bodyguard, also dressed in black, and her lawyer Gary Fishbein.

The trial, which is expected to last through the end of August, will finally end the couple’s 10-year marriage and decide who gets custody of their twin 11-year-old daughters Harper and Finley. 

Lockwood, 59, argued last week in court papers that he should be awarded primary custody of his daughters because he feared Presley could relapse back into drugs and booze due to her grief over 27-year-old Benjamin’s suicide last month. 

The musician was seen arriving at the Stanley Mosk courthouse in a blue suit, black pork-pie hat and also wearing a mask.

Before the start of Monday’s proceedings in front of LA Superior Court Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman, the press and public were ordered to leave, with the court clerk declaring: ‘This is a closed hearing.’

Hearings involving child custody are often sealed from public view.

Lisa Marie - Elvis’ only child - has admitted in the past to battling opioid and other painkiller addictions but claims to have been sober for the past three years.

Yet Lockwood - who also expressed concerns in court documents about guns at Presley’s $1.8 million home in Calabasas - alleged in legal documents that ‘heartbroken’ Presley's anguish over Benjamin's death could send her back to drugs and alcohol.

'Lisa Marie Presley's son shot and killed himself in her home (Although she was not there at the time),’ he said. ‘With all due sympathy and respect, this creates a new and unaddressed twofold problem: the safety of the children and the greater likelihood of [Presley] to relapse into drug and alcohol dependency,' he wrote. 

'The children told (him) that (LMP) walked around the house with a gun in her hand in 2017. There was at least one gun on the premises of her home at the time of her son’s suicide and it is unclear where the gun was kept or whether Finley and/or Harper might have access to this gun or others.

'Thus, there is a significantly higher risk to the safety of the children which would ordinarily justify 100 percent physical custody (to me) at this time in such circumstances.’

In addition, Lockwood said he’s worried his twins will be exposed to conversations about suicide.

The two wed in 2006 and separated and filed for divorce in 2016. The trial, which is expected to last through the end of August, will finally end the couple’s 10-year marriage and decide who gets custody of their twin 11-year-old daughters Harper and Finley

'There is a greater possibility that the children might think about suicide or attempt it, in light of their half brother’s suicide.
