Cher is speaking out about kidnapping allegations and her relationship with her son Elijah Blue Allman.
Last month, a report claimed that the 77-year-old icon allegedly hired four men to kidnap her 47-year-old man from a New York City hotel room in an apparent intervention attempt in November 2022. The wife Estranged from Elijah, Marieangela King, made the claim in divorce papers she filed last December and which recently came to light.
Cher is now speaking out, telling People that “that rumor is not true.”
He also confirms that the private family matter is related to his son’s addiction problems.
“I don’t suffer from any problem that millions of people in the United States don’t suffer from,” he said.
“I’m a mother. This is my job: in one way or another, to try to help my children. You do anything for your children. Whenever you can help them, do it because that is being a mother. But it is joy, even with pain; Above all, when you think about your children, you just smile, love them and try to be there for them.”
“I could fill a… I don’t even know, something gigantic with which I don’t know [about parenting]. I keep trying,” she continued.
