Lisa Marie Blogs About Pregnancy, Tabloid Apology
"I'm feeling unusually well and happy," the singer writes
In a new blog post, Lisa Marie Presley, who is expecting a baby, says she’s “feeling unusually well” these days – and also addresses an apology issued Friday by Britain’s Daily Mail.
“I miss you as much as you miss me, I miss being on the road!” writes the singer on her MySpace Celebrity blog. “I’m feeling unusually well and happy being pregnant thank you. (For those who have asked).”
Presley and her husband, MichaelLockwood, will welcome their first child this fall. The singer also has two teenagers, daughter Riley, 18, and son Benjamin, 15, with ex Danny Keough.
As for the apology from the Daily Mail over text claiming that Presley was pursuing a poor diet like her late father, Elvis, she writes, “It never ceases to amaze me how hard it is to get an apology and when you finally do it is never in the same context or magnitude as the original slanderous story. Regardless, I accept their attempt at redemption.”
Presley’s lawyers sued for libel after the newspaper published a photo of Presley, dressed down and without makeup, eating with friends in Los Angeles. As part of the settlement, the newspaper printed this apology: “On March 4 we published a photograph of Lisa Marie Presley while she was dining with friends. We suggested she might have an unhealthy appetite similar to her late father. We now accept that the suggestion is untrue and apologize to Ms. Presley for any distress caused.”
Presley says she’ll donate “anything else that comes from [the lawsuit]” to the Presley Charitable Foundation, which is building the New Presley Place in New Orleans.
She also reveals that she is at work on a third album and is “writing with many different people.”
