Cher’s request for guardianship over her son’s money is rejected

A Los Angeles judge denied Cher’s request for a conservatorship to control the finances of her son, Elijah Blue Allman.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica A. Uzcategui ruled that the singer’s lawyers had not given Allman and his lawyers the necessary documents to give them enough time to present their case. Uzcategui scheduled another hearing for Jan. 29, according to the Associated Press.

The Grammy-winning artist filed last week out of concern for Allman, 47, alleging that he is “substantially incapable of managing his own financial resources due to serious mental health and substance abuse issues,” according to reports . He added that he was concerned that his son would spend his trust fund money on drugs that would put her “life at risk.”

Allman, son of “Believe” singer and famous rocker Gregg Allman, is currently entitled to regular financial distributions from a trust created by his father, who died in 2017.

In court Friday, Uzcategui said she was not convinced by Cher’s argument.

Uzcategui cited the unwillingness of Cher’s lawyers to share material with Allman’s lawyers when contacted Thursday, the AP reported. Cher’s lawyers said they had concerns about confidentiality and instead shared the documents with Allman’s court-appointed attorney.
