Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

El­ton John’s mother Sheila tried to ruin his civil cer­e­mony to david Fur­nish by act­ing like a “rav­ing so­ciopath.”

The 72-year-old mu­si­cian and Fur­nish were among the first cou­ples to form a civil part­ner­ship in the u.k. when the union was le­gal­ized in 2005, but the star has re­called his late mother’s dis­rup­tive be­hav­iour at the cer­e­mony in his new mem­oir Me: El­ton John, claim­ing she spoke loudly dur­ing the vows, snubbed the pri­vate lunch and was rude to guests at the party. In ex­cerpts ob­tained by bri­tain’s Daily Mail news­pa­per, he wrote of the big day: “I was as happy as I could ever re­mem­ber be­ing. and that was the mo­ment my mother turned up, in char­ac­ter as a rav­ing so­ciopath.”

The rocket Man star added that sheila was so “vile” to the guests, re­call­ing: “at one point, sharon Os­bourne si­dled up to me. ‘I know she’s your mother,’ she mut­tered, ‘but I want to kill her.’ ”
