Granddaughter of The King
At first glance, the name ‘Finley Aaron Love Lockwood’ might not shout ‘rock n’ roll lineage’. However, her middle name, ‘Aaron’, gives a slight nod to it. And when you see her, those expressive eyes undeniably mirror her legendary grandfather, the iconic King of Rock N’ Roll, Elvis Aaron Presley. The weight of such a legacy is undoubtedly heavy, even more so when shared with a twin.
A Birth Amidst Stars
Born in Thousand Oaks, California on October 7, 2008, Finley and her fraternal twin Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood made their debut via Caesarean section. Intriguingly, based on various publications, Harper is always mentioned before Finley, perhaps suggesting she’s the elder twin.
Their father, Michael Lockwood, isn’t just any regular dad either. A renowned record producer and guitarist, he even strummed strings in Lisa Marie Presley’s band. However, life threw a curveball, and Lisa Marie, after a decade-long union, sought a divorce in 2016, which reached its legal conclusion in 2021.
An English Interlude
In 2010, yearning for a change from the Californian ambiance and seeking solace from the “self-absorbed Californians”, Lisa Marie made a significant decision. With kids and husband in tow, she relocated to Rotherfield, East Sussex. Here, they became the proud owners of a staggering $13 million mansion, a stone’s throw from the erstwhile home of Scientology’s L. Ron Hubbard. While in England, Lisa Marie even took a quaint job at a local fish and chips van, with owner Kim Scales recounting her time there fondly. However, this English chapter lasted only six years before the allure of California beckoned them back.
In the Shadow of Talent
Following in her father’s footsteps, Lisa Marie Presley carved her own path as an accomplished singer/songwriter. Her journey was punctuated by hits, with her albums consistently climbing the Billboard charts. But Finley’s connection to fame doesn’t end with her mother. Her elder half-sister, Danielle Riley Keough, widely recognized as Riley Keough, boasts an impressive filmography. From Magic Mike to The Devil All the Time, Riley’s talents are undeniable. This familial bond was delightfully displayed when Lisa Marie, Finley, and Harper collaborated for a heartwarming rendition of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” for Riley.
Tackling Life’s Tougher Tunes
However, every family has its shadows. Tragically, in 2020, Finley’s older brother, Benjamin Keough, succumbed to the grim clutches of suicide, casting a pall over the family.
Finley’s life has also been interspersed with the highs and lows of her mother’s marital odyssey. From a short-lived marriage with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, to a controversial union with actor Nicolas Cage, Lisa Marie’s romantic life has seen it all. The most challenging was perhaps her divorce from Michael Lockwood, which plunged the family into a whirlwind of legal and personal battles.
Life in Pixels
While Finley, still in her early teens, is not on social media, she is no stranger to the digital world. Lisa Marie’s Instagram often gives a peek into Finley’s life, with heartwarming pictures that echo the bond between mother and daughters. Furthermore, Riley, the protective older sister, frequently showcases her love for her younger siblings on her own Instagram.
In the end, while the weight of legacy can be burdensome, Finley Aaron Love Lockwood’s life, filled with love, challenges, and change, showcases a story that is uniquely her own, even as it intersects with the luminous legacies of her family.
