    From our crackpot files: According to Billboard.com, a Swedish woman who has spent two decades trying to convince everyone that she's Elvis Presley's real daughter and that his sole heir Lisa Marie Presley has stolen her identity, has filed a lawsuit against the Presley family. She does not claim to be a love child or the illegitimate product of an affair. She says she is legit and that she is the only Lisa.

    The woman, Lisa Johansen, is requesting a whopping $130 million in damages for defamation and infliction of emotional distress. Yikes.

    Johansen also published a 1998 a memoir I, Lisa Marie: The True Story of Elvis Presley's Real Daughter.

    In her book, she claimed that after Elvis died in 1977, Priscilla Presley left America while fearing for her daughter's safety. Forced to assume a new identity for her own protection, Johansen says she struggled to reclaim her name and heritage. To show she's the rightful heir of the huge Presley estate, Johansen says that evidence such as a skull and face analysis of Lisa Marie Presley prove who she is.

    Ugh. What a headache.

    Team Lisa Johansen or Team Lisa Marie?
