Elton John 'In Shock' To Learn Of His Mother's Death

Such sad news!

Sir Elton John says that he is "in shock" to learn of his mother's passing.

The popular English singer had recently reconciled with his mother, Sheila Farebrother, after not speaking for several years. 

She was 92 year old.

Sir Elton took to social media to share the heartbreaking news.

He writes:

"So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning. I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe Mum. Thank-you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton"

According to reports, Sir Elton and his mother suffered a falling out back in 2008 when the singer asked her to cut ties with two men, and she refused

It wasn't until recently that mother and son would put their feud behind them.

Last year, Sir Elton told the Daily Mirror:

“We are now back in touch.”

“Out of respect for my mother’s privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship.

“However, I can say that we are now back in touch and have been so since my mother’s 90th birthday.”

For Mother's Day this year, Sir Elton spoke of how glad he was to be back in touch.


Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day! So happy we are back in touch. Love, Elton xo
