Cher used the Los Angeles Superior Court to manage the drug use of her son Elijah Blue Allman. Cher has made the decision to take significant action to manage her son Elijah Blue Allman’s drug addiction.
PEOPLE was able to get paperwork that show the 77-year-old singer filed for a conservatorship in Los Angeles Superior Court.
With the argument that he is “substantially unable to manage his financial resources,” Cher is attempting to establish herself as the exclusive guardian of her son’s assets.
The singer stated that she “needs to protect his property from loss or injury” immediately, even though Elijah was supposed to receive assets from his trust before the end of 2023.
Because “their tumultuous relationship has been marked by a cycle of drug addiction and mental health crisis,” the Believe hitmaker also disregarded Marieangela King, his estranged wife, as a possible conservator.
“Elijah is entitled to regular distributions from the Trust, but Cher is concerned that any funds distributed to Elijah will be immediately spent on drugs given his ongoing mental health and substance abuse issues,” the document adds.
“Cher loves Elijah immensely and has always acted with his best interests in mind,” the statement says, claiming that she has been working nonstop to assist her son receive the therapy he needs.
