(Newser) – This should certainly help Lisa Marie Presley's financial woes. A source tells Page Six that the daughter of the King of Rock and Roll has inked a book deal that will see her paid $3 million to $4 million to dish on her famous father and two-year marriage to the King of Pop. The bombshell tome from Gallery Books "promises shocking revelations about Michael Jackson and a completely new understanding of Elvis," the source says.

Presley and Jackson were married from 1994 to 1996, as he faced allegations of inappropriate conduct with children. She noted in 2003, per Perth Now, "I believed he didn't do anything wrong," but "I wanted to save him." In 2010, she said he chose drugs and sycophants over her. She also drew a link between Jackson and her father. "They had the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create," she said, per Page Six. No word yet on a release date.
