Lisa Marie Presley sues over libel

Singer Lisa Marie Presley is taking legal action against the Daily Mail over alleged libel.

The case centres on a story published by the newspaper which said she was overweight. The 40-year-old claims that the wide reporting of the article forced her to confirm she is expecting a baby.

She went on state that press material has turned what should have been a time of happiness into a situation in which she had to defend herself.

Commenting on the case, Presley said: "I have had to show my cards and announce under the gun and under vicious personal attack that I am in fact pregnant."

She also stated that the press had been "like a pack of coyotes" circling around her recently, adding that publications in London, New York and Chicago wrote "false, defamatory [and] degrading stories" concerning the cause of her weight gain.

Born in 1968, Presley is the only child of Elvis from the late rock star's marriage to Priscilla Presley.
