Lisa Marie Presley is doing everything she can to win back her children – even if that means going to rehab to prove she is a fit mom.
Presley is in a heated custody battle with her estranged husband, Michael Lockwood. Given her history with substance abuse, Presley is hoping a trip to rehab will convince a judge that she should have primary custody of her twin daughters.
“She knows her documented history as a drug addict has left her extremely vulnerable in court, and she’s praying this will help her case!” an insider revealed.

A source told Radar Online that Presley has been in a treatment program for the past two months. She has even skipped out on Hollywood parties so that she can focus on getting her life back on track.
Presley’s trip to rehab comes after a judge ordered a mental health expert to evaluate Presley’s daughters. The exam was ordered following rumors of child abuse.
Lockwood and Presley have both been accused of abusing their daughters. The judge hopes that the mental health evaluation will shed some light on what is really going on and determine where the kids should be placed.
Presley has a history of abusing cocaine. She came clean about her drug use in the divorce last year and has been working to remain sober ever since.
Presley won a small victory a few months ago after a judge determined that she does not owe any child support to her estranged husband.

The custody battle isn’t the only thing Presley is dealing with at the moment. She also claims that a former business manage spent $100 million of her fortune, though those allegations have since been proven false.
Lockwood and Presley have been fighting over the custody of their 10-year-old girls since the spring of 2016. This week, a judge scheduled a custody hearing in January to resolve the issue.
