Just months after the pair reconciled following a near 10-year bitter relationship, Sir Elton John expresses his shock and his sadness that his mother Sheila Farebrother has passed away this week at the age of 92.

Sir Elton, 70, had recently rekindled his relationship with his mother after years apart.

The singer announced the news on Instagram by posting a picture of them together, writing: "So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning". "I'm not a person to be controlled or told what I've got to do", she said.

He added: "Thank you for everything". Earlier this year in May, Elton marked Mother's Day in the U.S. by posting a sweet photo with his mum and sharing a heartfelt message. I will miss you so much. "Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day!" The bust-up came about after Sheila remained in contact with two of Elton's oldest friends, Bob Halley and John Reid, after the singer fell out with them.

"And he then banged the phone down". "And to that I said to him, 'And you think more of that f-king thing you married than your own mother.'" Farebrother also held a grudge against John for not visiting his stepfather before his death in 2010. Mrs. Farebrother had previously been a constant support to her son throughout his mesmerizing career.

His mother even had an Elton John impersonator perform at her 90th birthday party.

Following the milestone, he reached out to his mother for the first time in seven years - sending her white orchids. "He has always been marvellous to me and he lives nearby and keeps an eye on me", she later recalled.
