Cher & Gregg Allman
The ink was still wet on the divorce papers that finalized her separation from Sonny Bono when, just three days later, a 29-year-old Cher decided to hop on a Learjet to Las Vegas and marry Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers. The diva shocked the music industry with her impulsive decision, which didn’t work out for the best. A mere nine days after they became man and wife, Cher filed for divorce on July 9, 1975. But between Allman’s heroin and alcohol addiction, he reportedly was too high to understand their marriage was over. Things remained tumultuous through the next year when Allman filed for divorce, but reneged when he found out Cher was pregnant with their son, Elijah Blue. After their duet album
Two the Hard Way, recorded under the moniker, “Allman and Woman,” failed to an embarrassing extent, Cher finally cut ties from Allman in 1977, finding solace in the loving arms of Kiss’ Gene Simmons.
