Elton John Mourning Death of 92 Year Old Mother
ELTON JOHN TELLS FANS HIS 92-YEAR-OLD MOTHER DIED AFTER ENDING AN EIGHT YEAR ESTRANGEMENT FROM HER LAST YEAR
(CNN) – Elton John’s mother has passed away.
The eight-time Grammy award winning singer shared the news on Twitter on Monday.
Elton John ended an eight year estrangement with her last year.
It allegedly began when John requested that his mother, Sheila Farebrother, cut contact with two family friends.
She refused and blamed his husband for inspiring the singer to sever ties with the friends.
The rift between John and his mother was fueled further by comments each made about the other to the press.
The legendary performer did not reveal the circumstances surrounding his 92-year-old mother’s death.
He tweeted, “I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton.”
