Singer Cher experienced trauma at a young age. At the age of 18 she had her first miscarriage, two more were to follow.

Singer Cher (76) experienced three miscarriages at a young age. The entertainer has now revealed this via Twitter. At the first she was only 18 years old. “I was alone in our house,” says Cher. Partner Sonny Bono (1935-1998) came home “and I sobbed and rolled on our floor”.

As she drove to the doctor, “I was screaming in pain and couldn’t even stop in the elevator.” The doctor sent her straight to the hospital and into the operating room. At the end of her tweets, she asks, “What would happen to me today?”

Weeks after controversial abortion decision

Cher made her story public weeks after the Supreme Court’s controversial decision. In June, the approximately 50-year-old landmark decision “Roe v. Wade” was overturned, overturning a nationwide abortion law in the United States. The states now decide on the right to abortion and can also severely restrict it. Even if the pregnancy is problematic or the baby would not be viable, terminations could be denied.

Cher has two children in total: Chaz Bono (53), born to her marriage to Sonny Bono, and Elijah Blue Allman (46), with her second husband Gregg Allman (1947-2017).
