A judge has declined Cher‘s request to immediately put her son into the legal conservatorship that she is seeking. However, the court will take up the issue again later this month.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica Uzcategui ruled that Cher’s attorneys had not given Elijah Blue Allman and his lawyers the necessary documents to give them sufficient time to make their case. Another hearing has been scheduled for January 29.
Last month, Cher reportedly filed for a conservatorship of her youngest son, Elijah Blue Allman, due to alleged substance abuse issues.
The singer requested to be the sole conservator of her 47-year-old son’s estate, claiming he is “substantially unable to manage his financial resources.”
The filing states that a conservator is “urgently needed. to protect Elijah’s property from loss or injury,” because he is “currently unable to manage his assets due to severe mental health and substance abuse issues.”
It adds that Allman’s estranged wife, Marie Angela King, cannot be his conservator because “their tumultuous relationship has been marked by a cycle of drug addiction and mental health crises.”
Allman receives money from a trust left by his late father, musician Gregg Allman. Cher’s attorney Gabrielle Vidal said at the hearing that a payment from the trust is pending, and the immediate establishment of a conservatorship is “a life-and-death proposition.”
But Uzcategui said, “I am not persuaded.”
