Cher has dropped out of Lifetime’s upcoming movie about the Flint water crisis due to a “serious family issue.”
70-year-old actress is fine, but her concerns lie with her 90-year-old mother, Georgia Holt, who reportedly is in a ‘fragile’ state.
“Cher’s worried about her mother’s health. She’s in her 90’s now and does not want to be far from her,” the source says. “Her mother is not deathly ill, but is somewhat fragile. “
“Cher’s health is fine,” the source added.
In statement to ET on Friday, Cher announced that she dropped out of the Lifetime movie, which was based on the 2016 water crisis in Flint, Michigan, because she was “unable to leave Los Angeles.”
“This has been a project so near and dear to my heart and I was truly looking forward to helping tell this story,” she shared. “Unfortunately, I will be unable to leave Los Angeles during the scheduled filming as I am dealing with a serious family issue that prevents me from going on location for the April filming.”
We wonder who they’ll get to fill Cher’s shoes…
