Lisa Johansen, a Swedish woman, has claimed for over twenty years she is the daughter of the late Elvis Presley.
Now, Johansen has filed a lawsuit against the Presley estate for over $130 million in damages for “defamation” and “infliction of emotional distress.”
In 1998, Johansen published I, Lise Marie: The True Story of Elvis Presley's Real Daughter, a memoir detailing her convictions; however, its popularity fizzled when she refused to take a DNA test in order to prove she was in fact Presley’s “real daughter.” This resulted in her Texas-based publisher suing her for $50 million, claiming she hurt potential sales of the book.
Johansen now claims to have taken a DNA test with London authorities in 2010 to help her with her current case, reported by Rolling Stone.
Meanwhile, Johansen continues to press charges of identity theft against Lisa Marie Presley. She filed a lawsuit in reaction to a letter from the Presley estate that said her “malicious, false claims and offensive, wrongful conduct” would no longer be tolerated, and if the woman did not stop, action would be taken.
