Lisa Marie Presley Sues Over Suicide Story

By Associated Press

Lisa Marie Presley sued the National Enquirer on Monday for defamation and invasion of privacy, claiming an article titled “Lisa Marie Suicide Drama” was filled with lies.

The June 17 article reported that Presley allegedly attempted to commit suicide in a bathroom and mutilated herself, drawing blood from her body and scrawling, “Nobody loves me” and “I’m ugly” on her arms.

“It was completely false. The article was completely fabricated,” said Presley’s lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli.

Petrocelli represented Fred Goldman in his wrongful death lawsuit against O.J. Simpson, and even used National Enquirer photographs of Simpson wearing incriminating shoes during the trial.

The lawsuit filed in Superior Court seeks unspecified damages for claims including libel and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
