Elton John's mother Sheila dies months after reconciliation

Sir Elton John 'in shock' as mum Sheila suddenly dies

Sir Elton John's mother has passed away, just months after they healed their nine-year rift. Their relationship became further inflamed when she claimed her son never told her she had become a grandmother when boys Elijah and Zachary were born. Elton shared a picture with his mum on Twitter where the two were smiling and in good spirits.

His mother's death is also a few weeks away from the first anniversary of George Michael's death. "I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock", he wrote alongside a photo of the two smiling. Travel safe Mum. Thank-you for everything.

"To be honest with you, I don't miss her", he said. "He has always been marvellous to me and he lives nearby and keeps an eye on me", his mother told the Daily Mail in 2015. After not speaking to her for eight years, John reportedly sent her white orchids on her milestone birthday.

The "Your Song" singer and The Lion King composer's tweet was liked almost 10,000 times and he received thousands of comments of sympathy from celebrities and fans.

Taking to Instagram to announce the news, Elton shared a snap of himself and his mum.

Many fans offered their sympathy and pointed out how wonderful it was that they had reconciled. The last time he saw her was just one week ago.


I am so sorry for your loss Elton. Elton proved that they made up in May with a sweet Mother's day shout-out.

John signed the post, "Love, Elton".

Elton included the following note with the floral bouquet.

Elton blamed his late father Stanley Dwight for not showing him enough affection, claiming it was this lack of love that led him to drink and drugs.

On Monday, John took to social media to reveal his mother Sheila Farebrother's passing.
