Sad News: Cher Announces the Passing of Her Mother, Georgia Holt, at Age 96


Sad to report, Cher has announced the passing of her mother, Georgia Holt, at age 96. Late tonight the singer tweeted: “Mom’s gone.”

Georgia Holt was married and divorced six times. She gave Cher a half sister in Georganne LaPiere. Show business was in this family’s blood. Holt has a career as a country singer and model. Georgeanne has also acted.

The closeness of mother and daughters was always emphasized since Cher became famous with Sonny Bono in the mid 1960s.

Rest in peace. Condolences to the family.
