Cher Seeks Conservatorship for Son Elijah Blue Allman Amid Substance Abuse Battle
In a recent legal development, iconic singer Cher has filed for temporary conservatorship of her 47-year-old son, Elijah Blue Allman. The petition, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by Billboard, highlights Elijah's ongoing struggle with substance abuse. Cher aims to be the sole conservator of her son's estate, citing severe mental health issues that hinder his ability to manage his assets.
Cher's Legal Move
Cher's legal filing reveals her deep concerns for Elijah Blue Allman's well-being, addressing his ongoing battle with substance abuse. The 'Believe' singer seeks temporary conservatorship, emphasizing that her son is currently incapable of managing his assets due to severe mental health issues.
Elijah Blue Allman, the son of Cher and the late Gregg Allman, co-founder of the Grammy-winning Allman Brothers Band, is the only child born to the former couple. Cher and Gregg Allman were married from 1975 to 1979, and the renowned musician passed away in 2017 after battling liver cancer.
Elijah's Music Career
Following in the footsteps of his famous parents, Elijah Blue Allman carved out a career in the music industry. As the lead singer of the industrial metal band Deadsy, he achieved chart success with albums like 2002’s 'Commencement' (No. 100) and 2006’s 'Phantasmagore' (No. 176) on the Billboard 200.
Cher's legal move comes in response to Elijah Blue's well-documented struggles, and it follows a divorce-related controversy involving claims made by his estranged wife, Marieangela King. The singer clarified last October that rumors of her involvement in a supposed attempt to kidnap Allman were false.
Cher's decision to pursue conservatorship for her son reflects her commitment to addressing mental health and substance abuse issues, mirroring her public support for the end of Britney Spears' conservatorship two years ago.
The court documents reveal that a hearing for Cher's conservatorship petition has been scheduled for March 6, 2024. This legal development unfolds against the backdrop of a broader conversation around conservatorship and mental health issues in the entertainment industry.
