Angry CHAZ BONO raged at mom CHER: “Leave me out of your f#@$%&* circus!” – demanding that the superstar omit any story lines about him in the upcoming Broadway musical based on her life!

Said an insider: “The script now has many references to Chaz, ranging from Cher’s acceptance of her daughter coming out as a lesbian, and her shocking gender transformation.

"While Cher doesn’t want to put their rocky relationship at risk, she’s explained to Chaz that there’s just no way she can do a show about her life if he’s left out completely.”

Chaz refused to even sit down and talk the script over at first, but Cher finally persuaded him to take a meeting on the project, said the source – after promising he’ll have full input and approval on story lines about his life. Stay tuned.
