Elijah Blue Allman Files To Dismiss Divorce Case Against Wife Amid Mom Cher's Conservatorship Filing

Elijah Blue Allman and and wife Marieangela 'Queeny' King filed a motion on Tuesday to dismiss their divorce action from 2021.

On Tuesday, Allman — who filed for divorce from King in 2021 — filed for a dismissal "without prejudice," according to documents obtained by PEOPLE. The move comes days before he is expected to appear in court for a conservatorship hearing brought by mom Cher.

King and an attorney for Allman did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

In court documents surfaced in September of last year, King accused the Moonstruck actress, 77, of hiring four men to kidnap her estranged husband in late 2022.

In October, King alleged that she had not seen Allman, 47, since late April, shortly after they agreed to “work on [their] marriage” amid their divorce. King — who is known professionally as Queenie — alleged that Cher had continued to “interfere” with her son’s “health management as well as his location and accessibility" during that time.

King claimed in the declaration that after agreeing on April 21 to keep their divorce proceedings in a “six-month stay in discovery and litigation,” Elijah — who was living with her at the time — “disappeared” and she had “not seen him in person since the end of April.”

“It seems as though he has wasted my time, and this Courts time,” the frontwoman of the band King stated.

King also stated that because of Allman's “lack of effort into working out [their] marriage,” she was requesting he pay her legal fees and continued spousal support, in addition to the $40,000 in spousal support that she alleged he still owed her.

Cher spoke to PEOPLE in early October about the allegations involving her second and youngest son, whom she welcomed on July 10, 1976 with the late Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band. 

Cher said “that rumor is not true” and declined to comment further, but confirmed that the private family matter is related to her son’s addiction issues.

“I’m not suffering from any problem that millions of people in the United States aren’t,” she said of watching her son’s yearslong struggles with substance abuse. “I’m a mother. This is my job — one way or another, to try to help my children. You do anything for your children. Whenever you can help them, you just do it because that’s what being a mother is. But it’s joy, even with heartache — mostly, when you think of your children, you just smile and you love them, and you try to be there for them.”

Meanwhile in December, Cher filed for a conservatorship of her son, claiming that he is "substantially unable to manage his financial resources." In the filing, Cher also claimed that King is not fit to be his conservator because "their tumultuous relationship has been marked by a cycle of drug addiction and mental health crises."

A hearing for a temporary order is currently set for Friday, with the hearing on a permanent order scheduled for March 6.
