Cher, 76, has been showered with condolences on social media after the singer apparently publicized her mother's death. The 76-year-old, who is usually very active on social media, had not contacted her followers for two days. Now she posted a sad emoji: "Mom is gone."
Cher did not provide any further details. Her mother, Georgia Holt, was 96 years old. As early as September, the singer shared on social media that her mother had health problems.
Georgia Holt used to be a singer herself, she is said to have been on stages as a child, and TV appearances followed later. In 2013, Cher produced the Lifetime documentary, Dear Mom, Love Cher, about her family history. Holt is said to have been married six times.
