Lisa Marie Presley is slamming a new story in the National Enquirer claiming she vehemently disapproves of Alex Pettyfer, the hunky British actor now engaged to her daughter, Riley Keogh.
"There is no truth to the latest National Enquirer completely made up story that Lisa doesn't like Alex Pettyfer, quite the contrary," Presley's rep tells Us Weekly in a statement.
In fact, both Keogh, 22, and her Magic Mike costar Pettyfer, 21, were in attendance at Wednesday's listening party for Presley's album, Storm and Grace, at the Village Recording Studio in Los Angeles.
The 44-year-old singer (whose father was the late Elvis Presley) and Pettyfer even posed for a jokey photo at the event, in which she pretended to strangle her daughter's beau.
A source confirmed earlier this month to Us that Keough and Pettyfer got engaged after just six months of dating; Keough was photographed flashing a huge engagement ring while lunching with her beau in L.A. two weeks ago.
