“I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock."

Elton John is in mourning today after the loss of his mother.

The 70-year-old singer shared the news via social media revealing he is "in shock".

His mother, Sheila Farebrother, died at 92 and it comes just months after the pair ended their nine-year feud.

On Mother's Day this year, John shared an Instagram of the pair saying how happy he is they are back in touch. 

 

 

Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day! So happy we are back in touch. Love, Elton xo

The pair's feud started in 2008 over a disagreement regarding maintaining friendships with his former staff members. Reports say the pair had not even seen each other since that day.

The feud was fuelled by John failing to attend his stepfathers funeral in 2010 and Farebrother added more the fire by hiring an Elton John tribute act for her 90th birthday party.

However, John sent Farebrother white orchids for the milestone birthday. The argument has been reported to be reconciled after John spent time in intensive care in April.
