Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ms Farebrother said, “I told him: ‘I’m not about to do that and drop them,” then to my utter amazement, he told me he hated me. And he then banged the phone down. Imagine! To me, his mother!”
For her 90th birthday, two years ago, Sir Elton reached out, and the two managed to settle their relationship.
