London, April 19 (ANI): American pop singer Cher’s son arrived at the GLAAD media awards with his new girlfriend Jennifer Elia.
Chastity Bono, the son of 63-year-old singer walked the red carpet with girlfriend Jennifer Elia.
“I didn’t have a clue he used to be Cher’s daughter – they look nothing alike. I didn’t know who he was,” an onlooker promoting lesbians, gays and bisexuals working for arts said.
Chaz began to change his gender in March 2009, starting with the surgical process. After the sex change, Chaz banished Chastity’s feminine blonde hair and flowery dresses, reports The Daily Express.
The 41-year-old activist had earlier said that it was the “best decision of his life.”
“I’ve struggled a lot getting here. If by being public other people can see this and not have to struggle as much as I did, then I’m happy to do that,” Chaz added.
Chaz also revealed that his father Sonny Bono accepted Chaz’s decision without any tantrums but mother Cher ‘went ballistic.’
Two years ago, Cher had thrown Chastity out of her house when her daughter revealed that she was in love with Jennifer. But they later patched up. (ANI)
