Lisa Marie Presley admits that she was “slowly starting to self-destruct.”

The 44-year-old songwriter and daughter of legendary musician Elvis Presley discovered a few years back that she was being taken advantage of by her closest confidants.

Lisa Marie couldn’t believe all of the false friends she uncovered in her life.

“I was slowly starting to self-destruct, and I didn't know where that was coming from,” she told USA Today. “I started to uncover the main person who was really close to me for years, and then it was a domino effect. I was devastated. I got bad advice. I was insulated with no grip on reality. They were taking my soul, my money, my everything.”

Lisa Marie will be releasing her new album Storm and Grace this week. The musician confesses that she poured her soul into the tunes.

“On this record, I was starting from zero,” she explained. “But I soon realised I was going to be OK. I found a proper bed for my voice and songwriting to lie in. I don't mention this to whine, but just to explain where this music came from.”
