This is so sad! Cher appeared to be suffering through one of the hardest days of her life when she attended her ex-husband Gregg Allman’s funeral today, June 3. The ultimate diva arrived at the service in Macon, Georgia fighting back tears so that she could say goodbye to her former love.
Cher, 71, and Gregg Allman may have gotten divorced in 1979, but her love for him remained until his recent death on May 27. The iconic “Believe” singer’s deep feelings for her ex-husband were apparent at his funeral on June 3 in Macon, Georgia. Gregg — who died at the age of 69 from complications due to liver cancer — was honored with a private funeral at a small chapel that was attended by 100 mourners, including his beloved family and dear friends like former President Jimmy Carter. The musician was then laid to rest in the Rose Hill Cemetery, which is also the final resting place of his brother Duane. Click here to see pictures of Gregg.
