Cher and Chaz: A Complex Relationship

The well-known singer and actress Cher is reportedly having a falling out with her first kid, Chaz Bono, which puts her in a difficult situation. Born during Cher’s union with Sonny Bono, Chaz is getting married to Shara Blue Mathes. Cher might not be going to the wedding, though, which would put a lot of strain on their relationship.

Chaz’s path has been one of bravery and self-discovery. Chaz, who was born in 1969 as Chastity Bono, subsequently came out as a lesbian. Chaz wrote about his own experiences and observations in a book called Family Outing: A Guide to the Coming Out Process for Gays, Lesbians, and Their Families. He talked about how he had always felt different from other kids and found it difficult to comprehend why he wasn’t interested in the same things as other kids his age. He finally came to terms with the fact that he was gay at the age of 13.

Cher, who is renowned for her advocacy of the LGBTQ community, first found it challenging to accept Chaz’s sexual orientation. Her misgivings eventually vanished, though, and she turned into a devoted ally. However, over the years, they have encountered difficulties in their relationship.

It seems that Chaz’s relationship with Cher is becoming more strained as he gets ready to tie the knot with Shara. Their relationship has been even more tense as a result of Cher’s recent refusal of conservatorship over her son Elijah Allman, who has been battling addiction. According to Chaz, Elijah’s reunification with his wife Marieangela King is met with resistance from Cher. Cher’s attempt to seize control of Elijah’s assets backfired in January when the court decided in favor of Elijah’s attorneys.

Sources close to the matter claim that Chaz and Shara have agreed to take Cher off the invitation list completely. They decided against Cher’s theatricals in favor of a straightforward ceremony due to their failing relationship. It appears that because of the complex relationships, Chaz and Elijah have both decided to keep their distance from their mother.


This begs the interesting question: Was Chaz right to exclude his mother from the wedding, or should he have included her? Please share your ideas in the comments section.
