Sir Elton John in shock as mother passes away

Two years ago, Sheila opened up on their estrangement, telling DailyMail.com, "I told him: 'I'm not about to do that and drop them".

The singer explained on his Instagram he was in shock as he 'only saw her last Monday'. Thank-you for everything. "It upsets me, but to be honest with you, I don't miss her".

He told the Daily Mirror at the time: "Out of respect for my mother's privacy, I have always shied away from speaking publicly about our relationship".

Elton confirmed earlier this year that the pair were very much back in touch.

"Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day!".

Sheila then added insult to injury by hiring an Elton John tribute act to perform at her 90th birthday party.

Their full reconciliation is believed to have come shortly after John spent time in intensive care with a bacterial infection in April after falling "violently ill" on a flight to the United Kingdom from Chile.

England's Stokes dismissed for two in Canterbury debut
Stokes, who batted at number four, was bowled seventh ball in Canterbury's 221-9 in 50 overs against Otago Volts. Asked on Monday if he would say no to the vice-captaincy, Anderson said: "Of course not, I wouldn't".

Ms Farebrother was aged 92.

Sir Elton, 70, had fallen out with Mrs Farebrother in 2008 after telling her to cut relations with two long-time friends, which she refused to do.

He told the newspaper: "She's keeping in touch, which is very nice. He told me I thought more of Bob Halley than I did of my own son", Farebrother said. It's so hard to say. "We do talk about him".

"And I have to say, they have remained unused", he added, just as an FYI.

John and his mother, Sheila Farebrother, had a strained relationship over the past decade, the BBC reports.

The infection was described by experts as "rare" and "potentially deadly", and all concerts from his Million Dollar Piano tour during April and May were cancelled.
