Cher worth $360 million wants to make sure she cleans out Sonny Bono for the last million they have probably have left.

Sonny actually made Cher a star with his management of their career and she divorces him and tries to take all the money.

Cher did 50% of the work with her former husband & business partner and remains entitled to her share of the proceeds of that relationship.

Early on she was 100% of the talent and Sonny was 100% of the management and business affairs. After their split, his surviving heirs are only entitled to his 50%.

Looking forward to Cher prevailing over the defendants.

Sonny and Cher had an agreement to split the profits from their act 50-50, which Sonny’s heirs are trying to renege on.

Sonny may have written songs such as I Got You Babe, but he would have got nowhere without Cher, as he must have been aware. So, good luck to her.

...it can be difficult when no one pays attention. Could happen to anyone.

Cher was never a talent and the so-called talent she became to be later was because of Bono, what a loser this woman is, now as she was when she was younger.

Anything this broad does is to say, "Look at me, I'm still alive, look at me."

Sonny apparently launched it all for her but in her career since then her hit songs were written by factory writers and in the meantime she got much of her attention from 'changing hairstyles and changing men' as the National Enquirer used to say in their TV ads.

Yeah yeah yeah, she had a #1 with 'Believe' in 1999, complete with an annoying cymbal-clash repeat loop and that satanic godawful vocal-altering device known as 'auto-tune'. Is that something to be proud of? A predecessor to all this teen poptart crap, her shows set the stage getup props for dinghy broads like Kate Perry and Lady Caca. Style without substance.

Real theatric artists like Alice Cooper and Peter Gabriel work at their art, everything. I know, I've seen them both live and they are true performers doing their own creative work. And real performers like those two and others are notorious for their music which is what they should be recognized for in the first place and not simply for image or who they are seen with.

I guess maybe Cher needs the money to pat all those plastic surgeons. Just a hunch.
