Lisa Marie Presley describes herself as deeply in debt and just out of a treatment facility in court papers that accuse her estranged fourth husband of having hundreds of inappropriate photographs of children on his computer.
Lockwood - who showed up to court with bleached blonde hair down to his chin and a gray suit and tie - sat at the same table with Presley, while his lawyer argued that the 49-year-old singer had declined to acknowledge all of her income.
Lockwood's lawyer, Jeff Sturman, said February 18 his client denied the "highly sensational" and "inaccurate" charges.
She reportedly has "no assets" and receives $104,000 a month from her late father Elvis Presley's estate, which mainly goes to her children and living expenses.

Their 8-year-old twin daughters are under the care of California child protective services, according to documents filed this month with California Superior Court in Los Angeles related to husband Michael Lockwood's request for spousal support.
Lockwood is challenging the validity of an agreement he signed after marrying Presley in 2006 that would govern how much he is entitled to in a divorce. "Therefore, while Mr. Lockwood denies the truth of what Ms. Presley chose to put in the press, he has no further statement at this time".
Lockwood gave up his career and worked for Presley before their breakup, according to court documents.
Presley and Lockwood both appeared in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom for Wednesday's hearing but did not appear to speak to each other. Presley said in court papers that she has lived with her adult daughter and has been in a treatment facility for undisclosed reasons since moving from Tennessee to California past year. They separated in June after 10 years of marriage.

"Her average annual earring is $5.6 million (£4.5m) per year", Sturman said.
The twins are now being cared for by Presley's mother, Priscilla, after officials at California's Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) were called in to investigate the alleged discovery of indecent photos and videos of minors on Lockwood's computer.
Priscilla Presley tried to allay fans' concerns about the legal issues and well-being of the twins in a Facebook post Sunday.
