Lisa Marie Presley’s fourth husband Michael Lockwood paid tribute to his ex-wife the day after her death.
Lockwood, 61, who split from the star in 2016, said his world has been “turned upside down” and that he is dating twins Finley and Harper Vivienne, 14.
In a statement released by his attorney, Joe Yanny, he said: “Michael had hoped for a speedy and full recovery because their children needed it.
“It’s very sad that it didn’t happen that way. Michael’s world has been turned upside down, he is now with his two daughters.’

Yanny added that Lockwood’s prayers are with Priscilla Presley and the rest of the Presley family.
The couple married in 2006 and had two twin daughters together in 2008 – before separating in 2016 and threatening a bitter divorce battle.
Lockwood and Lisa Marie feuded over finances for years and continued the fight until her death on Thursday.
He was demanding $40,000 a month in child support and insisted she had more money than she claimed in court documents.
Amid divorce proceedings with Lockwood, she temporarily lost custody of her twin daughters, who were living with their mother, Priscilla.
In a 2017 statement, a year after their acrimonious split, she admitted to abusing cocaine, opioids, painkillers and alcohol.

Lisa Marie added that she’s had to go to rehab “several times” and admitted to spending between three and five stops at a Mexican treatment facility.
She said she was a “mess” and “couldn’t stop,” with court documents revealing that she “abusively abused cocaine” during the final year of her marriage to Lockwood.
The singer added, “I’ve only been mixing the pills and alcohol for the past two years.”
She says her therapist called her a “miracle,” before adding, “I don’t know why you’re still alive.”
The couple are understood to be splitting custody of their children 50/50, with Lockwood taking care of them with his new wife.
After their breakup, Lisa Marie asked a judge to “officially declare her single” from her estranged husband after a five-year separation from Lockwood – who refused to divorce.
She said there was “no hope” for the couple to reconcile and wanted to “move on” with their lives.
