Elijah Blue Allman is the 47-year-old son of Cher and Gregg Allman. The singer's daughter-in-law claims that her husband was kidnapped on November 30, 2022. Now, shocking news has appeared in the media that his own mother may have been involved in the incident.

From the beginning, Cher objected to her son's relationship with Marie Angela King. The man even filed for divorce in 2021. It seemed that the couple might be getting back together. At the end of 2022, they spent romantic moments in one of the hotels in New York. The idyll was interrupted by Allman's kidnapping, about which his desperate wife informed.

Cher suspected of kidnapping son

Elijah Blue Allman and Marie Angela King got married in 2013. However, things did not always go smoothly for them. What's more, the man's mother added fuel to the fire, who once in her son's absence ordered the woman to move out of their own home.

"Vanity Fair" has obtained court documents presented during the divorce proceedings of Marie Angeli King and Elijah Blue Allman. The woman recounted the memorable night of November 30, 2022, when her husband was abducted from the hotel room they were staying in at the time.

The couple was celebrating their wedding anniversary that day. According to King, one of the kidnappers claimed to work for Cher. It turned out that Allman was placed in one of the rehab facilities. It is no secret that the man has been fighting drug addiction for years.

Cher's daughter-in-law appeals to her husband's family

At the time of writing this article, Cher has not commented on the matter that has been occupying media worldwide for several hours. Was she really involved in the kidnapping of a son?

However, the woman admitted that she knew about his addiction. Marie Angela King also testified that she was prohibited from contacting her husband as early as August 2022. Contact was also made difficult because Elijah did not have access to a phone.

"I understand his family's efforts to ensure his health, and I want the best for my husband" - said Cher's daughter-in-law in court.
