The girls are named Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love.
2. Lisa Marie Presley was married to the late Michael Jackson
Many people know that Elvis’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley has had a string of failed relationships and marriages, and one of them includes her short marriage to Michael Jackson. They first met in 1975 when Lisa was just 7 years old and she was in attendance at one of his shows. They eventually began an adult relationship in 1992. With all the child abuse allegations against Jackson, he leaned on Lisa for support. She filed for divorce in 1996, citing irreconcilable differences.
In 2010, Lisa told Oprah Winfrey that she and Jackson continued to have an on-and-off relationship for four years following their divorce.

4. Lisa once belonged to the Church of Scientology
Like many other celebrities, Lisa was once part of the Church of Scientology. What’s even more surprising is that she was indoctrinated into the Church of Scientology in 1977 by her own mother, Priscilla. She even received the Humanitarian Award from the Church of Scientology-supported World Literacy Crusade for efforts in helping children across America learn study skills.
However, in 2016, she defected from the Church, although both her mother and daughter (Riley Keough) remain members of the Church.
5. She had four marriages
Lisa has had four marriages and all of them have ended in separation/divorce. Her first husband was musician Danny Keough in October 1988. They soon had a quick divorce in 1994. Her second marriage was to Michael Jackson, as we know. Her third marriage was the most notable one next to Michael Jackson, and it was to actor Nicolas Cage in 2002. Cage filed for divorce after just 108 days of marriage and it was finalized in 2004.
Her fourth and most recent marriage was to guitarist Michale Lockwood in 2006. What’s shocking about this was that her first husband, Danny Keough, was actually the best man at their wedding. She filed for divorce after ten years of marriage, in 2016.
