The stunning singer and fashion icon Cher has two children, but nor many people know both of them.

Chastity Bono, who later became Chaz Bono, was her first child. He was born in 1969 when Cher was married to famous Sonny Bono. After their marriage failed, Cher found a new love. The legendary singer tied the knot with rock musician Gregg Allman. It happened just four days after finalizing her divorce in 1975.

This love story didn't last forever and the second marriage was ended. However, Cher and her husband welcomed one child, son Elijah Blue. The boy was born in 1976.

It seems Cher wrote Elijah off her life after he eloped to marry the girl he loves.


Mother-son relationship: Cher and Elijah Blue Allman

When talking about the relationship with his popular mother, Elijah Blue says he and his mom haven’t spoken in months. Cher didn’t invite her son to spend Christmas together. She also didn’t congratulate him on engagement and didn’t approve of his marriage.

Elijah got married in a romantic ceremony at their home in Beverly Hills. However, Cher wasn’t invited. The son explained his decision not to invite his mom by saying:

I wasn’t going to wait for anyone’s approval and congratulations just like I’ve never waited for any of that my whole life.

The man describes himself as “the black sheep” of his family, noting that some of them were happy to hear the news about his marriage while others didn’t say a word. Elijah’s grandmother, Cher’s mother Georgia Holt did send her congratulations.

Despite the obstacles in their story, Blue still wants to reconnect. The man admires her mom's talent:

You know, she's really talented. She's gorgeous - I mean, she's Cher. What's not to love?

Elijah also spoke about his half-brother, Chastity, saying that they used to be close when they were children but then they grew apart. Chastity was born as a girl but in 2009 he underwent a reassignment surgery and changed his name to Chaz.

Parenting can be challenging even if you are Cher and children's decisions often raise parents' criticism. At the same time, a mother-son bond is so important. Every kid deserves to be accepted and loved. And what do you think? Do you agree?
