Chaz Bono’s “Life in Crisis”?
“Chaz Bono Life in Crisis,” reads the headline of a speculative new Star story. According to the tabloid’s so-called “sources,” Bono “is more miserable than ever as his relationships with both his mother and his fiancée crumble.”
Star says mom Cher‘s vocal support for her son – which she demonstrated before, during and after his DWTS run – is all for show. “Chaz’s relationship with Cher is as strained as ever,” insists a tab source. “And it’s obvious when he talks about her – it sounds as if Cher is a business associate, not a mom.”
Meanwhile, claims Star, Bono’s relationship with girlfriend Jennifer Elia is “just as tumultuous.” “Jennifer has been a total nightmare on the set,” explains a DWTS “insider,” adding, “She’s totally insecure and always gives Chaz a hard time about his bond with [his dancing partner] Lacey Schwimmer – even though Lacey is a professional and would never hook up with Chaz.” The mag’s source continues, “It’s a constant stream of verbal abuse, and Chaz just takes it.”
Actually, there’s just been a “constant stream” of bogus tabloid speculation about Bono and his loved ones. Just last month, for instance, Star wrongly claimed that Bono and Elia were planning to have a baby together. It looks like if you don’t have a child when Star magazine wants you to have a child, all of a sudden your relationship is deemed “tumultuous.”
As for Bono’s relationship with his mom, the tabs have been trying to fabricate off-camera drama – and it just isn’t true. A rep for Cher assures Gossip Cop that she’s “proud” of him and “had a great time” when she visited “Dancing with the Stars.”
