  • Elton John announces mother's death, months after longtime feud ended

John's heartbreaking loss came mere months after the "Tiny Dancer" singer reconciled with his estranged mother, Sheila Farebrother. "I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock", John wrote.

He added: "Thank you for everything".

In May, John, 70, shared how happy he was to be back in communication with her again. "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. After this, Sir Elton sent her white orchids and they got back in touch for the first time in seven years. Stanley Dwight, who died in December 1991, never saw his son perform.

Those totals give him 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns, both second-most in the nation, with just five interceptions on the year. Milton is second nationally in passing efficiency and is the spitfire-engine of the country's highest-scoring offense.

The pair hadn't spoken for over eight years before rekindling their relationship in 2016.

Ms Farebrother explained in a 2015 interview with Daily Mail, their fight started from an argument in 2008, when Elton had a falling out with two long-time members of his team - Bob Halley and John Reid. Bob is like a son to me. "Out of respect for my mother's privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship". And he then banged the phone down.

John then failed to show up to his stepdad's funeral in 2010 and Farebrother furthered the feud by hiring an Elton John tribute act for her 90th birthday party. Even if I was destitute I wouldn't be controlled by anybody.
