Cher’s Plea for Court Conservatorship for Son Elijah Blue Allman Denied


Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica A. Uzcategui dismissed Cher’s urgent plea for a court conservatorship over her adult son, Elijah Blue Allman.

 Cher, the Oscar- and Grammy-winning singer and actor, expressed concerns about the 47-year-old’s mental health and substance abuse issues, pointing to large payments from the trust of his late father, Gregg Allman. 

Despite Cher’s arguments, the judge did not find the situation immediately warranting a conservatorship but left the possibility open for further consideration in a scheduled March hearing.

During the remote hearing, Cher, appearing on a large screen, watched as her plea was declined. 

Elijah Blue Allman, present in the courtroom with his attorneys, received support from the judge, who acknowledged his previous struggles but opted against a temporary conservatorship.

 Cher’s legal team argued that the support Allman receives may not be conducive to his well-being, claiming that he might be misled about the severity of his issues. They cited his bipolar disorder, homelessness, and potential dangers associated with large sums of money.
