Elton’s mum has spoken of her heartbreak over her three-year rift with the entertainer, who she alleges has “cut me out of his life.”
Sheila Farebrother was a witness at Sir Elton’s 2005 civil ceremony with David Furnish but her relationship with the musician has since fallen apart and they no longer speak.
According to The Sun, the pair fell out after Farebrother made a comment that insulted Furnish. A source claims he ”went ballistic.”
The 86-year-old has refused to comment on reports she sparked a feud with her son’s partner, telling the publication, “It was something like that, but not exactly.”
She adds, “He has cut me off completely. It happened three years ago this June. He has had nothing to do with me since then.
“I don’t want to go into what caused it. It is a painful subject. My son cut me out of his life for good.”
Farebrother reveals that Elton didn’t inform her when he welcomed a baby boy, Zachary, at Christmas and insists there are no plans for her to meet her grandson: “I have no particular interest really. You will have to ask them about that.”
Despite Sheila having sold a treasure trove of Elton memorabilia for 28,820 pounds when she recently moved house, she also insisted it had “nothing to do” with the troubles between her and her son.
She said, “That has nothing to do with it. I moved into a smaller place and had nowhere to keep all that stuff.”
A spokesperson for Elton responds: “I have never had a conversation with him about whether he talks to his mother. She is a lovely lady, but she is 86 and she is frail and old.”
