Elton John‘s mother passed away, the legendary singer announced on Monday morning, just months after the two reconciled.

John shared the news on social media, writing, “So sad to say that my mother passed away this morning. I only saw her last Monday and I am in shock. Travel safe Mum. Thank you for everything. I will miss you so much. Love, Elton.”

No further details about her death were released.

John and his mother, Sheila Farebrother, had been estranged for nearly 10 years before they reconciled around Mother’s Day. John posted a photo of her that day, writing, “So happy we are back in touch.”

The estrangement was said to be over Farebrother refusing to cut off ties with two friends of John’s that the singer had stopped talked to.
