Cher has denied allegations that she hired four men to kidnap her son Elijah Blue Allman from a New York City hotel room.
People says Cher denied the allegations, saying, “That rumor is not true” and declined to comment further.
Cher’s response follows a report that surfaced last month that she allegedly hired four men to kidnap her son, 47, from a New York City hotel room in an apparent intervention in November 2022. The allegation was made by Elijah’s estranged wife, Marieangela King, in the divorce documents she filed last December.
King claimed one of the four men who took Allman told her that the Grammy winner hired them.
Cher confirmed that the private family matter is related to her son’s addiction issues.
“I’m not suffering from any problem that millions of people in the United States aren’t,” Cher said about her son’s struggles with substance abuse. “I’m a mother. This is my job – one way or another, to try to help my children.”
“You do anything for your children,” she added. “Whenever you can help them, you just do it because that’s what being a mother is. But it’s joy, even with heartache – mostly, when you think of your children, you just smile and you love them, and you try to be there for them.”
