Cher's Request for Temporary Conservatorship for Son Elijah Blue Allman Denied
Cher's request for a temporary conservatorship over her son Elijah Blue Allman has been turned down by a judge in the US.
Judge Denies Cher's Request for Conservatorship
Cher filed for a temporary conservatorship over her son Elijah Blue Allman last year, citing his alleged substance abuse and mental health issues.
However, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica A Uzcategui has denied the petition, stating that Allman has shown that he has managed his finances and remained drug-free.
Allman had to undergo several drug tests before the hearing.
A conservatorship is typically granted by a court for individuals who are unable to make their own decisions, such as those with dementia or other mental illnesses.
It can be used to manage a person's financial affairs, personal affairs, or both.
Cher's lawyers expressed concerns about Allman's mental health during the hearing, but the judge concluded that much of their argument was based on hypotheticals and fears.
Future Consideration for Long-Term Conservatorship
Although the temporary conservatorship request was denied, the judge, Ms. Uzcategui, will still consider a larger, long-term conservatorship in a hearing scheduled for March.
Cher's concerns for her son's well-being were acknowledged by the judge, who stated that Allman also understands his mother's concerns.
The outcome of the hearing in March will determine whether a long-term conservatorship will be established.
