Elton John and his mother, Sheila Farebrother, had not spoken for nine years due to a family dispute.

After almost a decade apart, John and his mother posed for an Instagram post last May announcing their reconciliation.

Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day! So happy we are back in touch. Love, Elton xo

Unfortunately, today John announced that his mother, 92, passed away.  The pair had been together as recent as last Monday.

Add this to an already tumultuous year for John, who had to cancel all of his performances in April and May due to a “harmful and unusual bacterial infection.”
