Elton John's shock snub in mother's will

Elton John's shock snub in mother's will

Sir Elton John’s shock snub in his mother’s will has been revealed, with reports suggesting the musician’s mother left a chunk of her fortune to her former personal assistant who is believed to have sparked the feud between the two.

The Sun reports the 70-year-old superstar was left with two ceramic urns in the will of Sheila Farebrother, while her former PA Bob Halley received £534,000 ($950,312).

The 92-year-old passed away in December after seemingly healing a nine-year rift with John, and notably also snubber the singer’s sons and husband in the will.

Sir Elton John reportedly knew nothing about the bequest.

“It’s a surprise to me. I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he told reporters from his West Sussex Home.

A source told The Sun: “Sir Elton is worth £300 million ($534 million), but it’s not the money that matters.

“It very much looks like Sheila was determined to make one final point to her son in her will.”

In 2015 she said of their row: “He told me I thought more of Bob Halley than I did of my own son. I said to him, ‘And you think more of that f***ing thing you married than your own mother’.”

What are your thoguhts?
