Elijah Blue Allman has encountered serious issues with substance abuse.
World-renowned American singer and actress Cher has filed for conservatorship over her son Elijah Blue Allman due to his recent and predictable substance abuse problems. According to documents filed with the Los Angeles Supreme Court and obtained by People magazine, the 77-year-old Oscar and Grammy winner seeks to become the sole guardian of her son’s estate, claiming that he is «virtually incapable of managing his financial resources.»
The document states that although Elijah is set to receive assets from the trust by the end of the year, Cher «urgently needs to protect Elijah’s property from loss or damage» as he «currently cannot manage his assets due to serious mental health issues.» The artist also claims that her former daughter-in-law Mariangela King cannot be a guardian since «their tumultuous relationship is marked by cycles of drug addiction and mental health crises.»
The document asserts that Elijah is entitled to regular payments from the Fund, but given his ongoing mental health and substance abuse issues, Cher is concerned that any funds transferred to Elijah will be immediately spent on drugs, leaving him with no assets to support himself.
The statement concludes by claiming that Cher has «relentlessly worked to get Elijah into treatment and provide him with the necessary help.» Allegedly, she couldn’t discuss his preferences regarding the appointment of a temporary guardian due to his «current mental and physical condition.»
The hearing for the temporary order is scheduled for January 5, 2024, and the permanent order hearing will take place on March 6, 2024.
