AceShowbiz - Sir Elton John is glad his late mother never met his children because he knows she would have been critical of them.
The "Rocket Man" hitmaker was estranged from Sheila Farebrother for nearly nine years, but reconciled with her in 2017, months before her death. However, John did not introduce his young sons to their grandmother because he was sure the meeting would not have gone well.
"She never liked (my husband) David (Furnish)," he told CBS' "Sunday Morning". "She never liked anybody. She never asked to see the children. But I'm glad they didn't meet her, because she would have criticised them, like she criticised me. She couldn't help herself. She's a sociopath.''
John also revealed when he last saw his mum she had not changed.
''The only thing that changed was I didn't lose my temper," he added. ''I knew what was coming, and I let her get on with it. And I just said, 'I love you, Mum,' and she said, 'I love you, too. I don't like you, but I love you. But I don't like you'.''
