We thought Cher and Chaz Bono had a great relationship, especially after she publicly gave him her blessing at the GLAAD Awards last year!
But according to a source close to Chaz, the mother and son are far from close. The source says:
"Chaz and Cher barely speak anymore and they’re both OK with that.
Cher loves Chaz to death, but she stopped talking to him because they just don’t see eye to eye on the very public way he’s continued to deal with his transformation. She’s really at peace with the transgendered aspect it’s just that she still sees Chaz as her little girl and the dramatic physical changes are really hard on her.
Chaz understands completely so they both agreed to take a little family sabbatical — from each other. Cher even joked that Chaz reminded her too much of his dad Sonny and you know how well that turned out."
Oh no! We understand how seeing someone change after knowing them so long can be jarring, but we really thought this family was past that!
We hope they can find a way to reconcile any issues they have and start speaking again.
Because there are few better ways to show your love than with a heart-to-heart.
