Cher requests guardianship of her son due to “health problems”

Cher has filed for guardianship of her son Elijah Blue Allman, 47, due to his recent health problems. As People has learned, the singer is seeking to be the sole caretaker of her son’s estate, claiming that he is “substantially incapable of managing her financial resources.”

The information has been gathered thanks to documents presented in the Los Angeles Superior Court. These documents also state that Elijah “urgently needs a close person to protect his property from loss or injury,” since he is “currently unable to manage his assets due to serious mental health and substance abuse issues.” Additionally, he claims that his ex-wife Marieangela King is unsuitable because “their tumultuous relationship with her has been marked by a cycle of drug addiction and mental health crises.”

The report states that the singer “has worked tirelessly to get Elijah the treatment and help he needs”: “Cher loves Elijah immensely and has always acted with his best interests in mind.” However, the artist has not been able to communicate effectively with her son on the subject “due to her physical and mental health problems.”

Cher, who has just released her Christmas album ‘Christmas’, has not yet spoken publicly about it, neither responding to the media nor through social networks, where she is usually quite active. On January 5, the hearing will take place that will give a temporary verdict on the situation of the artist and her son; However, the judge’s final decision will not be known until at least March.
