Transgender in the Promised Land CHAZ BONO tells mom CHER to “Dial H for Hypocrite”!
CHAZ knows his mom has led a colorful life, but he wishes she’d shut up about it already!
During a recent appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” superstar Cher admitted to host Andy Cohen that she’d had a lesbian fling in the past.
“Who hasn’t?” the 67-year-old said coyly.
Chaz was furious about the comment because he remembers how terrible she was to him when he was a teenaged girl named Chastity and came out of the closet as a lesbian, says a source.
“The truth is that Cher rejected Chastity when she came out, and now Chaz sees his mom’s lesbian admission as the height of hypocrisy,” explained the source. “Making matters worse, Chaz believes Cher orchestrated the interview to play to her gay following, primarily because she has a new album coming out.
“He’S VERY UPSET with her.”
The 44-year-old lived life as a gay woman for years before deciding to transition to life as a man.
And in his 1998 book, “Family Outing,” Chaz noted that Cher – who is both a gay icon and an ally to LGBT communities –“went ballistic” when her then-18-year-old daughter revealed she was gay. In fact, in Chaz’s 2011 memoir, “Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man,” he wrote that she even kicked him out of the house.
After Chaz underwent female-to-male gender reassignment surgery in 2009, Cher confessed that she struggled to come to terms with “losing” her daughter.
But now, Cher is singing a different tune, and Chaz suspects his mom’s timing is not only good for her career but also strategic considering that the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled in favor of gay rights in two landmark decisions supporting same-sex marriages.
“Chaz thinks Cher is jumping on the gay and lesbian bandwagon because it’s in the news and fashionable to do so, ” said the source.
Still, this isn’t the first time that Cher has admitted to having sexual flings with women. In a 1995 interview, the “Woman’s World” singer told “The Advocate” that although she’d had same-sex relationships when she was younger, she was “scared” when she found out that Chastity was a lesbian.
“I just didn’t want it to be the truth,” Cher said.
Added the source: “Chaz loves Cher, but he thinks that his mother talks out of both sides of her mouth. He’s really angry right now.”
