LONDON, May 2 (UPI) -- Britain's Daily Mail newspaper has published an apology to Lisa Marie Presley for remarks it made about the U.S. singer's weight.

Presley, who is the daughter of late rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley, said media speculation about her recent weight gain forced her to announce her latest pregnancy before she was ready.

"On March 4, we published a photograph of Lisa Marie Presley while she was dining with friends. We suggested she might have an unhealthy appetite similar to her late father," the newspaper said in a statement. "We now accept that the suggestion is untrue and apologize to Ms. Presley for any distress caused."
