Cher Files Federal Lawsuit Against Sonny Bono’s Widow Over Sonny & Cher Royalties

Cher has filed a federal lawsuit against her late husband’s widow after she was served paperwork stating she would no longer receive royalties from the music she created while performing in Sonny and Cher. 


Sonny and Cher were married from 1967 to 1975 and in their divorce, it was agreed that they would have “an equal division of their community property.”


Songs like “I Got You Babe,” “The Beat Goes On,” “Baby Don’t Go,” “Little Man,” and “Bang Bang” would be subject to royalties which Cher would collect on. Cher received a “notice of termination” and filed her own suit claiming she suffered “damages, and will continue to sustain damages, in an amount not presently known but believed to exceed $1,000,000.”


Mary Bono has yet to comment on the lawsuit or what Cher is entitled to. Sonny Bono died in 1998 after a skiing accident.
