Cher has filed for a conservatorship over her son, Elijah Blue Allman. The singer/actress filed to be the sole conservator of her son’s estate due to alleged substance abuse issues, with claims that Allman is “substantially unable to manage his financial resources.”
Legal documents obtained by People revealed stated that “Elijah is entitled to regular distributions from the Trust,” and his mother, Cher “is concerned that any funds distributed to Elijah will be immediately spent on drugs, leaving Elijah with no assets to provide for himself and putting Elijah’s life at risk.” The filing added that a conservator is “urgently needed … to protect Elijah’s property from loss or injury, as he is currently unable to manage his assets due to severe mental health and substance abuse issues.” Also mentioned in the filing is Elijah’s estranged wife, Marieangela King, who was said to be ‘unfit’ to be his conservator as “their tumultuous relationship has been marked by a cycle of drug addiction and mental health crises.”
Earlier this year, Cher responded to reports that she hired four men to forcibly remove Elijah from a New York City hotel room in November 2022. The reports stemmed from King’s divorce documents she filed last December, which were made public. Cher later denied the allegations, telling People, “that rumor is not true.”
A hearing for a temporary order is set for January 5th, 2024 and a hearing for a permanent order will take place on March 6th.
