    Lisa Marie Presley's custody request has Scientology written all over it.

    Lisa Marie Presley has filed for divorce from Michael Lockwood, and her custody request could mean something terrible was going on.

    Presley wed Lockwood, a musician, in 2006, and the couple has twin girls together. And that is the interesting part of her divorce petition. She asks for no alimony, no child support, really nothing at all — except she wants full custody of the girls and only wants to allow Lockwood to have monitored visits.


    Another possibility could revolve around Scientology. Presley reportedly left the controversial religion several years back, and her defection was reportedly the reason she and Lockwood moved to England. However, it was soon discovered that their country manor was just down the road from Scientology's 59-acre British headquarters. So did Lockwood return to the religion he practiced when he and Presley wed?

    If so, that could be a key part to the mystery of the monitored visitation request. As Leah Remini disclosed upon her escape from Scientology, once you leave you are considered a "Suppressed Person" until and unless you return, and until then, your former Scientology friends and family totally cut you out of their lives. When Katie Holmes left Tom Cruise, she reportedly kept her plans ultra top secret so that the actor couldn't take their daughter Suri and turn her against her mom like he allegedly did with his children from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

  2. OP cut the quote short by 2 important sentences -

    Could Presley be afraid that Lockwood could take off with their kids to a Scientology hideout? Pure speculation of course, but we'll be keeping a close eye on how things play out.

    The thread title probably exaggerates, but let's see how the events unfold.
  3. On topic - It is very common for a divorce to be contentious as most of the time, the couple is fighting and not very happy with the overall situation. And that is for anybody.
    It is also very common for the wife to seek full custody of the children.
    And if she has a large trust or whatever it would not be that unusual for her to not ask for spousal support.

    I swear, you know that you ex-scientologists really never stop with the addiction to gossip and speculation about others. It gets tiresome. scientologists are the most notorious nosy busy bodies.

    ----------OFF TOPIC -
    Tonight on Rachel Maddow's show on MSNBC, in the midst of news coverage of today's terrorist attack at an airport in Turkey, A Scientology commercial ran on the air for CCHR, anti psychiatry.
  4. A request for monitored visitation is anything but standard operating procedure.
  5. She has every right to do what she feels is best for the well being of herself and her children.

    Outside of that, this is a personal matter and unless she makes some sort of announcement to the public

    about it, it is really none of your business. Divorce and breakups are tough.

    She is free to make her own independent choices and I wish her well.

    If you are bored, maybe you can go back and rifle through your own PC folders for something to judge and scrutinize. But then, maybe there is nothing there because you are perfect and always do everything the right way, the very first time.

  6. The speculations wasn't mine. All I did was cross-post a news story. A story, btw, who I'm pretty confident wasn't written by an ex.

    If you are troubled by news about her divorce, I suggest you don't peruse news stories, web articles or tweets that mention Scientology. None of which, by the way, were written by exes.

  8. Tony Ortega wrote about this today -

    Lockwood does have a few Scientology completions from that time, 2004-2007, but they are minor and reflect that he was doing those courses because he wanted to be a part of Lisa Marie’s life.
    Our sources close to Lisa Marie tell us that Lockwood was not a Scientologist when Lisa Marie met him and he is not one now.
    We think it’s presumptuous to assume that the divorce between them, or Lisa Marie’s attempt to get custody over their twin daughters, has anything to do with Scientology.
    If we hear otherwise, we’ll report it. But for now, we think it’s probably not the case.

    ^^ This is untrue.

    Monitored/supervised visitation is common, and becoming increasingly so, especially for the separation and early-divorce stages of a family breakup. Parenting plans, usually court-ordered, especially in contentious divorces where child custody is involved, are now even including supervised visitation as a formal aspect, as well.

    Reasons often include: history of DV in the home, drug abuse/addiction (parent or child), sexual abuse allegations, child neglect, child abuse (including emotional), mental illness (parent or child), adoption, risk of abduction by non-custodial parent, etc.

    Edit: I need to add that this list is not all-inclusive, and not to infer that any abuse is going on within Lisa Marie's household or with her children. Sometimes, it's best for all involved to have an unbiased party present to just help ease tensions, with no nefarious reasons behind the request. Visitation/custody should always be set up with the goal of what's best for the children kept in mind. Of course, that doesn't always happen, but...
