Cher and Chaz: A Strained Relationship

Cher, the iconic singer and actress, may not be attending her son Chaz Bono’s upcoming wedding. Reports suggest that a growing feud between the two has strained their relationship over the years.

Most people are familiar with Cher’s son, Chaz Bono. Chaz was born during Cher’s marriage to Sonny Bono and originally named Chastity Bono. Over time, Chaz came out as a lesbian and later underwent a female-to-male gender transition between 2008 and 2010.

At the age of 18, Chaz came out as a lesbian to both of his parents. Reflecting on this realization, Chaz said, “As a child, I always felt there was something different about me.” He found it perplexing that his peers were interested in fashion and boys, while he wasn’t. This led him to discover his true identity and eventually come out as gay.

Cher has always been a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community. However, their journey as mother and son hasn’t been without its challenges. Cher admitted that initially, she struggled with Chaz being gay but eventually accepted it, recalling, “It disappeared like that.”

As Chaz prepares to marry his fiancé Shara Blue Mathes, their strained relationship seems to be worsening. Cher won’t be among the wedding guests. This decision comes after Cher’s recent denial of conservatorship over her other son, Elijah Allman, who has been dealing with addiction issues.

Chaz claims that Cher disapproves of Elijah’s reconciling with his wife, Marieangela King. Cher’s attempts to gain control over Elijah’s assets have been unsuccessful, with the court citing insufficient time to prepare a case against her petition.

Sources close to the situation reveal that the relationship between Chaz and Cher has deteriorated over time. In fact, Chaz and Shara have chosen to remove Cher entirely from the guest list for their wedding. They desire a simple ceremony without the theatrics often associated with Cher.

The strained relationship between Chaz and Cher, coupled with Cher’s issues with Elijah, has led both children to distance themselves from their mother.

So, what do you think? Do you believe Chaz should include his mother at his wedding, or do you agree with his decision to remove her? Let us know in the comments below.
