Cher says marriage to Sonny Bono drove her to the brink of suicide
London: Cher has admitted that she once considered taking her life because she was unhappy in her 10-year marriage to Sonny Bono.
“I thought about jumping off a hotel balcony,” The Daily Star quoted the Oscar-winning star as saying.
The legendary singer said she struggled to cope with her husband`s womanizing ways, and now accepts they should never have wed.
“Stardom made him a huge womaniser. One woman, or even five, was not enough,” she said.
“I asked him, ‘How did you manage the logistics?’ I was trusting and faithful and, the truth is, I’m not so sure we should have ever been husband and wife,” she added.
Cher also claimed that Sonny, who died in a skiing accident at the age of 62 in 1998, blackmailed her by warning that if she divorced him her career would nosedive.
She said Sonny cheated on her as she went through the heartache of four miscarriages before their daughter Chastity was born in 1969.
