Lisa Maria Presley will be paying her ex-husband’s legal fees.

According to E! News, Presley recently filed legal documents against her ex opposing his request to have her pay spousal support and legal fees following their 2016 divorce proceedings.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered Presley to pay $50,000 to cover his legal fees over a course of five months until the trial that will determine the validity of their post-nuptial agreement, which details divorce terms.

It has not yet been determined if she will have to pay his requested spousal support — Lockwood has asked for $40,000 a month.

Presley recently made claims that she found “hundreds of inappropriate photos of children”in Lockwood’s possession, and he is facing allegations of sexual abuse and neglect. He has not been charged with a crime and has denied the allegations in her filing.

The couple’s twins are “temporarily under the care of DCFS [Department of Child and Family Services]” according to Presley’s documents, and a separate hearing will be held in March in reference to the allegations.

During the court appearance, Presley’s attorney claimed that she has no income and cannot afford to pay spousal support or legal fees. 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.

Presley’s attorney also suggested that Lockwood, a guitarist, could look for work and get a job at a “Guitar Center” or teach music for a living.
