The “Turn Back Time” singer is Georgia’s daughter with her first husband, John Sarkisian, who died in 1985. The two split when the pop star, born Cherilyn Sarkisian, was a toddler. Georgia would go on to marry six more times, including to John again in the ’60s, but each marriage did not last.
Georgia met her partner Craig at a quilt-and-bed boutique she opened in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood, and he moved into her home a month later, the magazine said. The two were in a relationship from 1976 until her death.
Cher has offered glimpses of her life with Georgia on Twitter. “I love my Mom, but Ours Wasnt Always a Marriage Made in heaven,” she tweeted in September. “I Was Stubborn, a Strong, Willed little Child, I Was a Pony Who Couldn’t Be Broken, & It scared Her. I Hoped a Freight car when I Was 9. Read The Book.”
This past April, Cher tweeted, “SO SORRY,WAS AT MOMS & JUST CAME HOME. NO SERVICE AT MOMS,BUT SHE WAS SO HAPPY I STAYED WITH HER.SHE’S A YOUNGTER OF 96 & [loves] 2 TALK ABOUT OLD DAYS,& OLD MOVIES WITH ME. SHE TELLS ME ALL THE TIME”BABE,GETTING OLD ISNT FOR SISSIES”.I SEE & RESPECT HER ALL THE MORE.SHES A TUFF [cookie].”
