Elton John's Mom reveal she last spoke with son 7 years ago

Elton John's mother Sheila has broken her silence on why they've been estranged for years.

The 68-year-old Rocket Man singer-songwriter had a falling out with her nearly a decade ago.

And Sheila reveals the pair stopped talking after they engaged in an argument over his now-husband, David Furnish.

“Yes, it's seven years now in June,” she told UK newspaper The Daily Mail. “But you know, I've got used to it. And it was all so stupid — so petty.”

At the time, Elton fired some of longtime personnel, who had been employed by him for 30 years or so.
