|Difficult relationship: Sir Elton John and his mother Sheila Farebrother, pictured in 2002, have been estranged for years|
Sir Elton John, 68, recently got back in touch with his mother on her 90th birthday following years of estrangement. He insisted it's not all happy families with Sheila Farebrother, admitting he 'doesn't want her in my life'.
The pair fell out seven years over his husband David Furnish, 53, and although the singer is happy to financially support his mother, he doesn't want to spend time with her.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: 'It upsets me, but to be honest with you, I don't miss her. 'When she says things in the press, like last year: "I haven't spoken to Elton since he married that f***ing a*shole David Furnish..." That was pretty hard to take.
'I don't hate my mother. I look after her, but I don't want her in my life.' Sir Elton's estrangement from Sheila means she is yet to meet her two grandchildren Zachary, five, and Elijah, three.
