Did Cher organize the kidnapping of her own son?
Did singer Cher organize the kidnapping of her 47-year-old son, Elijah Blue Allman, while he was with his wife, Marie Angela King, in a New York hotel on the evening of their wedding anniversary?


That’s the story reported by Variety, a case alleged by Marie Angela King herself and revealed via documents obtained on the heels of her divorce from Cher’s son, at the center of this kidnapping story.

According to Variety, the couple had marital problems and spent several days in a New York hotel in 2021, working on their relationship. According to King’s testimony, which can be read in the legal documents, the stay was abruptly interrupted by four men who forced Cher’s son out of the hotel room, while one of them claimed they were acting under instructions from… Cher herself!

King even claims she hasn’t seen the man she married in 2013 since the events:

“I am currently unaware of my husband’s wellbeing or whereabouts.”

“I am very concerned and worried about him,” King continued in her statement.

Also according to Variety, Allman, who has been battling a drug addiction for many years, was allegedly taken to a forcible treatment center under the direction of his mother, something King seems to corroborate in the documents in question:

“Since August 2022, I have been told that I am not allowed to see or speak to [Allman] who is currently in lockdown at a treatment facility that is undisclosed to me. I am also told [Allman] has no access to his phone.”

Few details of the divorce resolution are available at the time of writing, and the singer has yet to comment on the allegations made by her son’s wife.
