imageLisa Marie Presley[1]'s estranged husband just conceded she runs circles around him when it comes to income, and that's why he's asking the judge to forcibly open her purse.

Michael Lockwood[2] just filed legal docs asking the judge in the couple's ongoing divorce to make Lisa Marie foot the $450,000 bill for his lawyers' fees. To justify that ... he submitted income declarations that show he makes a tiny fraction of what she pulls in.

According to the docs, Michael earns between $20 and $25 an hour at 2 different music stores, doing things like cleaning guitars and running errands for the owner.

Lisa Marie, on the other hand, rakes in just shy of $350,000 per month with an annual income of $4.2 mil.
