Dismissing reports that Lisa Marie Presley's 8-year-old twin daughters are in the custody of the state of California, grandma Priscilla Presley says the girls are with her. The AP reported over the weekend that Finley and Harper Lockwood, Lisa Marie's children with estranged husband Michael Lockwood, were under the supervision of Child Protective Services as Elvis' daughter, 49, is going through bitter divorce proceedings with Lockwood, who she accuses of child abuse. Among other things, Lisa Marie says Lockwood, 55, had inappropriate child photos on his computer, People reports.

But Priscilla posted a picture on Facebook Sunday, showing the two little girls swimming in a pool and noting all of the "confusion, commotion and concern" that's been swirling around about her daughter and grandchildren. "Let me put this to rest … the girls have not been in foster care and never will be," she writes. "The girls have been with me and will be until all this is sorted out." Meanwhile, Lockwood's attorney tells Us Weekly in a statement that Lisa Marie's claims about Lockwood are "very unfortunate and inappropriate." (Priscilla Presley recently spilled on why she left Elvis.)
