Elton John’s mom, Sheila Farebrother, has died, the singer announced Monday on social media.
“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,” John wrote.
Mother and son were reportedly on the outs for a few years after a disagreement in 2008, but according to John they got back in touch last year.
“Out of respect for my mother’s privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship,” he said at the time. “However, I can say that we are now back in touch and have been so since my mother’s 90th birthday.”
The “Benny and the Jets” singer’s parents divorced when he was 15. Stanley Dwight, who died in December 1991, never saw his son perform.
