Elton John Mourns The Death Of His Mother

Elton John Mourns The Death Of His Mother

"When she says things in the press, like a year ago, 'I haven't spoken to Elton since he married that f-king a-hole David Furnish.' That was pretty hard to take", he said.

Elton John's mum, Sheila Farebrother, has passed away.

Last year, Elton and his mum healed a nine year rift, reconciling shortly before her 90th birthday. Thank you for everything.

"I got this package from Eminem and shows you how homophobic he isn't", Sir Elton told The Graham Norton Show during his recent guest spot.

Ms Farebrother revealed in a March 2015 interview that, following a heated argument, her son asked her to cut two men out of her life but she refused.

And earlier this year, the singer posted a sweet tribute to Sheila on Mother's Day.

This past Mother's Day, he tweeted a photo posing with her that was captioned, "Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day!".

"We are now back in touch", he confirmed last December.

The pair hadn't spoken for over eight years before rekindling their relationship in 2016. "Love, Elton (sic)" Elton and Sheila had patched up their relationship in May after nearly nine years of not speaking to each other.

Sir Elton took to social media to share the heartbreaking news.

Cause of death was not immediately disclosed.

"I don't know [if watching me reminds her of her son]". I will miss you so much. "It was [manager] Stuart who mischievously sent her a video".

His mother's death is also a few weeks away from the first anniversary of George Michael's death. He canceled several upcoming performances to recover from the illness.
