Veteran singer Elton John's mother Sheila Farebrother has died aged 90.
John said he is "in shock" at the death of his mother, just months after the pair rekindled their relationship having not spoken to each other for almost nine years.
The 70-year-old singer posted a picture of the pair on Instagram writing: "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."
Before they got back in touch with each other, John had not spoken to his mother since June 2008.
