Elton John says he grieves for his mother and will always remember her. Elton and Sheila had been estranged for eight years.

"For my marriage-when David and I did our civil partnership-I got this package from Eminem that shows you how homophobic he isn't", Elton John begins. According to the Daily Mail, the once-close knit pair had not spoken for almost nine years until they reconnected in May of this year. And he then banged the phone down. "Imagine. To me, his mother", she told the outlet of the "petty" argument over her decision not to cut ties with two old friends, Bob Halley and John Reid.

The iconic musician shared in the spring that he and his mother were "back in touch" after a falling out in 2008.

"Dear Mum, Happy Mother's Day!"
