Cher has commented on her ex-husband Gregg Allman’s passing. In a statement posted on her Twitter page, the singer said, “IVE TRIED… WORDS ARE IMPOSSIBLE GUI GUI FOREVER, CHOOCH ” Her message was accompanied by a series of archival images.

Allman and Cher were married from 1975 to 1979 and had one son together, Elijah Blue. The musical couple also released an album together, the ill-fated 1977 record Allman and Woman, and played a handful of shows during their rocky relationship. Cher also used Allman’s late 1980s hit “I’m No Angel” as the opening number during her 1989-1990 Heart of Stone Tour.
