Cher’s Son Elijah Blue Allman Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance

Share

Cher‘s son, Elijah Blue Allman, made a rare public appearance this week, amid an ongoing legal battle with his famous mother. 

Allman, 47, and his wife, Marieangela “Queeny” King, 36, posed for photos at comedian Christine Peake’s birthday comedy show and benefit event at Hotel Ziggy in West Hollywood on Monday.

The rare appearance comes a week after Cher’s bid for a temporary conservatorship over her son was once again denied.

According to The Associated Press, a judge rejected the singer’s bid, saying a conservatorship over Allman was not urgently needed, despite Cher’s claims that her son needs a conservator because large payments from the trust established by his late father, musician Gregg Allman, were pending and that kind of money could put Allman in danger due to past mental health and substance abuse issues. In court documents, Allman has acknowledged his addiction struggles, but he’s now in treatment and, as a result, more than three months sober. 

ET independently confirmed that Cher attended the hearing via Zoom but did not speak during the proceedings. 

During a previous hearing last month, the judge said she was not convinced and ruled a temporary conservatorship was not needed. Cher’s attorneys then made another bid, this time stating Cher did not seek to directly control her son’s finances and that she would be happy to have a court-appointed fiduciary manage her son’s money.

Allman’s attorneys had previously argued that a conservatorship is not necessary, however, Allman stated in court documents that if it was deemed necessary, he would prefer King to serve as his conservator. The pair, who wed in 2013, were recently estranged, but have reconciled, and Allman filed to dismiss his divorce case last month.

“Given that I no longer have an active dissolution case, I believe that my wife would have priority to be appointed conservator, if necessary, but I do not need that either,” Allman said in court documents (via USA Today). “Under no circumstances am I comfortable having my mom as my conservator even if that was necessary.” 

Despite Cher’s second request being denied, the judge has said she will still consider a larger, long-term conservatorship at a hearing slated for March.
