John, 70, who had not spoken to Farebrother for around nine years until May this year, shared the sad news with fans on Instagram on Monday by sharing a photograph of them together, reports

"So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning. I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe Mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton," he wrote.

"So happy we are back in touch. Love, Elton," he wrote back then.
