Pop music legend, Cher, recently refuted claims alleging she was behind her son's mysterious disappearance from a New York hotel. The "Believe" songstress directly addressed the matter, saying, “That rumor is not true," after a shocking revelation was made public in a Rolling Stone article which linked her to these serious allegations.

The magazine cited court documents from Elijah Blue Allman’s recent divorce proceedings. The controversy sparked in late September when Elijah Blue Allman's soon-to-be ex-wife, Marieangela King, stated in a declaration signed on December 4, 2022, that her husband had been forcibly taken by four unidentified men from their shared hotel room on November 30, 2021.

King further claimed that one of the men disclosed that Cher had orchestrated the kidnapping. “I was informed by one of the kidnappers that they were commissioned by Cher," King recounted. Adding to the intrigue and concern, King mentioned she’s been “kept in the dark regarding Allman's wellbeing and current location” since August 2022.

Elijah's Notable Musical Legacy

Elijah, the accomplished musician and lead of the band Deadsy, is Cher’s son with late rock legend Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band. His contributions to the music scene include the renowned music video for “If I Could Turn Back Time." While Cher remained tight-lipped regarding further details, she hinted at the situation being intertwined with Allman’s past struggles with substance abuse.

Emotionally, she conveyed the sentiments of countless mothers, "Just like millions of other parents in the US, I too face challenges. My primary role is being a mother, which means doing everything within my power to support my children." Cher continued, “Parenting brings its fair share of pains, but mostly, when you ponder on your children, it’s pure love and joy that overwhelms you.

In times of crisis, you stand by them, offering unwavering support”. As the story continues to develop, fans around the globe hope for a positive resolution and express their support for both Cher and Elijah during these trying times
