Cher avoided 'new son' Celebrities Entertainment Toronto Sun
Cher spent months avoiding her transgender son Chaz Bono as he went through the process to become a man - because she was terrified she wouldn’t recognize him as her child.
Bono was born Chastity - Cher and ex-husband Sonny Bono’s only daughter - and she broke her mother’s heart when she came out as a lesbian. Chaz feared more heartbreak was to come when he revealed his plans to undergo a lengthy and extensive sex change procedure, but Cher took the news well.
However, once the process started, the pop superstar kept her distance.
