News about Cher Denied Conservatorship
A Los Angeles judge rejected Cher’s request for temporary conservatorship over her son, Elijah Blue Allman, citing concerns about his mental health and substance abuse issues. Cher’s lawyer revealed Elijah’s battles with addiction and schizoaffective disorder, leading to periods of psychosis. The court learned that Elijah has been placed on involuntary hospital holds multiple times, and Cher fears for his life, especially regarding an upcoming trust payment from his late father’s estate.
Cher’s lawyer emphasized an urgency to protect Elijah stating that denying the conservatorship could lead to potential risks, as he is surrounded by people who downplay his mental health challenges. The judge acknowledged Cher’s concerns but did not find sufficient evidence to prove Elijah’s current incapacity to manage his affairs. The decision prompted a follow-up hearing for a possible permanent conservatorship on March 6.
This development followed Cher’s December 27 petition, expressing ongoing worries about Elijah’s mental health and substance abuse. Despite Cher’s genuine concerns the judge emphasized the need for more concrete evidence to justify conservatorship.
Elijah, 47, appeared in court but did not speak. The judge recommended mediation before the March hearing. Elijah’s lawyer, Steven Brumer, expressed Elijah’s gratitude for the court’s decision and willingness to explore mediation stating that Elijah is doing well.
