If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's 'voicemale' trauma

Cher has pleaded with her son Chaz Bono, who was born female – the only daughter of infamous pop duo Sonny and Cher -to give her a copy of his old female answering machine message after becoming ‘hysterical’ when she reached his new voicemail.

Cher and her late husband Sonny Bono’s progeny, originally named Chastity, began a lengthy and extensive sex change procedure over three years ago. Cher took the news well when Chaz first announced his plans; however as music-news.com reports, the ‘Believe’ singer is finding it difficult to come to terms with the process her transgender son has gone through.

She revealed: 'I was hysterical one day because I was calling Chaz's answering machine and I realized it was her old voice, and then I said, 'Chaz is there a way I can save it because I will never hear that voice again?' But unfortunately for Cher, there wasn’t.

She added, 'That's the most traumatic thing that has happened to me in this whole thing - hearing her voice and knowing I'll never hear it again.’ A new documentary called ‘Becoming Chaz’ deals with Chaz’s process of becoming a man and the complexities involved in more detail.
