But the entertainment company reportedly went bankrupt in 2006, losing Presley the big money. Presley said that she was not notified of the Core deal and a loss of $24.5 million as a result of the bankruptcy.
“Siegel never Lisa with the required accounting at any time after the Core deal,” the court documents obtained by US Weekly to read. “Siegel reportedly led Lisa to believe that she was in ‘good shape’ with its finances.”
Although the singer only cited the $24 million lost through bad investment, she has called Siegel for $100 million for financial flickers, she believes, has yet to be processed.
The court documents read that Presley has “damaged in an amount that is not yet fully established, but is believed to be more than $100 million.”

Seigel, who claims that Presley has “uncontrollable spending habits,” has countersued the singer, according to The Blast.
The lawyer of Siegel defended the former manager Core Entertainment deal and said to The Blast, “in 2005, they complain that now cleared more than $20 million in debt Lisa had incurred and netted her more than $40 million in cash and a multi-million dollar revenues, most of which they managed to squander in the subsequent years.”
