This comes days after the Daisy Jones & the Six star petitioned for a temporary restraining order against the defendant, a company called Naussany Investments & Private Lending LLC, who alleged her late mother, Lisa Marie Presley, had never paid off a $3.8 million loan from 2018.

"Lisa Marie Presley never borrowed money from Naussany Investments and never gave a deed of trust to Naussany Investments," Riley's lawsuit stated. "These documents are fraudulent."

As OK! previously reported, Lisa Marie tragically passed away on January 12, 2023, after suffering cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home. She was rushed to the hospital and put into a medically-induced coma, but later suffered a second cardiac arrest that took her life.

"It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us," her mother, Priscilla Presley, said at the time.
