DUBAI – Singer Elton John’s mother has died just seven months after the two reconnected following a long rift. She was 90.
Elton, 70, broke the news with fans on Instagram on Monday. He did not say, however, what caused Sheila Farebrother’s death.
“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. Love, Elton,” he wrote.
The singer had shared a picture in May to celebrate reconnecting with Farebrother, saying he was “so happy we are back in touch”.
Elton is due to perform in Dubai on December 8 at Autism Rocks Arena. As of Monday, organisers said the concert will go ahead as planned. GAD/Expat Media
