If we could turn back time, we would have never spent the time writing our original story about Cher starring in an upcoming Lifetime movie about the Flint, Michigan water crisis.
Today we’ve learned The singer and actress is backing out of the project for family reasons.
Cher was set to represent a Flint resident whose family was impacted by contaminated water.
Her departure is due to a family issue that prevents her from traveling to Toronto, where the project is set to start filming next month.
Speaking to ET, Cher said: “This has been a project so near and dear to my heart and I was truly looking forward to helping tell this story, 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.”
There are unconfirmed reports that the 70-year-old star, herself, is perfectly healthy, but her 90 year old mother, Georgia Holt is in “fragile” health.
No word on who will take Cher’s place in the movie.
She apologized to fans on Twitter for not being around lately. We hope everything is OK in your life, Cher!
