(Radio.com) Elton John revealed that his mother passed away on Monday morning (December 4). She was 92. The singer broke the sad news to fans with a posting on social media.
"So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning," he wrote. "I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe Mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much."
John's relationship with his mother had been strained. "I don't hate my mother," the singer told Rolling Stone in 2016. "I look after her, but I don't want her in my life." However, the BBC reports that John and his mother had reconciled earlier this year after he recovered from a bacterial infection. See the post here.
