American icon Cher has reportedly taken drastic measures to help her son, Elijah Blue Allman, overcome his drug addiction.
Cher sent men to her son's home to take him to rehab, with friends praising her as an "amazing mother" with the best intentions.
Elijah, a talented musician, had previously spoken about his eight-year struggle with drug addiction,
which involved heavy drug use, including heroin and painkillers.
Friends emphasize that despite the challenges of being the child of an icon like Cher,
he's a lovely guy who had been making progress in his journey to recovery.
