John Became A Stranger To His Daughter

John’s daughter Cher was born when his marriage was ended. His former wife took their daughter and went away. 

Because of that, he and his daughter never met each other for 11 years

When his daughter was 11 years old, his former wife Georgia invited him to dinner and asked Cher if she wanted to meet her father. 

Cher never saw John, nor did her mother ever talk about him. So, for her, John was a stranger. 

Cher had no excitement about meeting John, but still, she agreed. 

After 11 years, when John’s daughter saw him, she felt that she looked a lot like John

She found John attractive and wanted to like him but couldn’t. John just became a stranger who was beautiful and looked like her.

Cher Is A Shy Person

In the interview with Jimmy Fallon, Cher opened up about her being a shy woman. 

The interviewer was shocked when he heard Cher say she was shy, so he showed her some pictures of her in a sexy outfit. 

Cher said that it’s not the same and explained about her shyness. She feels awful about her shyness but can’t help it. 

She talked about her Broadway show, where she had put on things that nobody knew about, and because of that, she was embarrassed to watch her play. 

There are things in her Broadway, her ugly moments and the things that happened to BTS, which make her cry. 

She doesn’t feel like watching it, but still, she manages and cries because she can’t resist those parts of her life.

Cher Got Plastic Surgery

Cher is currently 77 years old. However, looking at her appearance, no one could say that she is in her 70s

She still looks young and beautiful, and the reason behind her youthful look is plastic surgery. 

Cher has admitted that she has undergone plastic surgery for her nose and fixing her teeth with braces. 

She went through breast implantation and upliftment to get the desired breast size and shape. 

She also had done a nose job to fix her nose and a lip filler. 

However, there have been rumors of her removing ribs and uplifting her cheek, which she denied. 

She never thought people would make such a big issue about facial changes.
