Cher - Bono Asked Sponsor For Sex Change Cash, Not Cher
Cher's transgender son Chaz Bono refused to ask his mum for the cash he needed to complete his sex change - because he didn't want to rub his decision "in her face".
Bono admits he fell short of the cash for breast removal surgery by $10,000 (£6,250) and opted to ask his sobriety sponsor for the money instead of his famous mum, because she was uncomfortable with his decision to become a man.
He tells Eonline.com, "I didn't want to go to my mum with it because it was something she was struggling with. It's like why rub her nose in it?"
Bono insists his Burlesque star mum has been supportive of his decision, but he can tell she's still coming to terms with it: "I think that she is moving in the right direction (but) I don't get the impression that she's 100 per cent completely comfortable."
