London | Veteran musician Elton John has reconnected with his mother Sheila, following an eight-year feud. The 68-year-old singer has been at loggerheads with his mother for the best part of a decade, but has revealed they recently reconnected and are now back on good terms, reported Female First.
Out of respect for my mother’s privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship. However, I can say that we are now back in touch and have been so since my mother’s 90th birthday, he said.
Until a few weeks ago, the duo had not spoken since 2008 and there appeared to be minimal chance of a reconciliation when Sheila booked a Elton tribute act for her 90th birthday bash. A source close to the pair admitted Sheila’s landmark celebration has proven to be a turning point in their relationship.
