Cher Files for Conservatorship Over Son Elijah

Cher has expressed in the documents that Elijah's current mental and physical health issues prevent him from forming or expressing preferences regarding the appointment of a conservator for his estate.

Cher, the iconic 77-year-old music legend, has filed for a conservatorship over her 47-year-old son Elijah Blue Allman’s estate. Legal documents obtained by various sources reveal that Cher is seeking to be the sole conservator due to concerns about Elijah’s ability to care for himself and manage his financial resources, primarily stemming from alleged struggles with drug abuse.

Cher has expressed in the documents that Elijah’s current mental and physical health issues prevent him from forming or expressing preferences regarding the appointment of a conservator for his estate. She contends that any funds distributed to Elijah might be immediately spent on drugs, putting his life at risk and leaving him with no assets.

Elijah Blue Allman, who reportedly makes $120,000 a year and is entitled to regular distributions from a trust established by his late father, musician Gregg Allman, has an estimated $0 value in personal property, according to Cher’s court filing. The conservatorship hearing is scheduled for March 6, 2024, where the court will address Cher’s concerns about Elijah’s financial management.

Cher’s filing comes on the heels of a report claiming she hired men to “kidnap” Elijah in 2022 to address his drug addiction. Cher has vehemently denied these allegations, emphasizing her dedication to helping her son through his struggles. A temporary order hearing is set for January 5, providing an interim evaluation of the situation.

Elijah, who has openly discussed his past struggles with drug abuse, has been at the center of a tumultuous relationship with his estranged wife, Marieangela King. The court documents reveal concerns about King’s fitness to be Elijah’s conservator, citing a history marked by drug addiction and mental health crises.

Despite the challenges, Cher has reportedly worked tirelessly to get Elijah into treatment and secure the help he needs. The court documents stress Cher’s immense love for her son and her continuous efforts to act in his best interests. The legal proceedings shed light on the complex intersection of familial responsibility and legal intervention in the face of mental health and substance abuse issues.

Cher’s decision to file for conservatorship for Elijah Blue Allman places the spotlight on the broader context of conservatorships, which gained significant public attention with Britney Spears’ case. The hearing for a temporary order on January 5 and a permanent order on March 6 will determine the course of Elijah’s conservatorship. Cher’s actions highlight the challenges families face when dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues, prompting legal measures to ensure the well-being of loved ones.
