Cher has said she ran away from home when she was 11 because she was so ‘strong-headed’.

Cher ran away from home when she was 11.

The 66-year-old singer said she was "really strong-headed" when she was a youngster which often caused problems with her mother, Georgia Holt, whom she’s paid tribute to in new documentary Dear Mom, Love Cher.

She told People magazine: "We were always close but we fought a lot when I was young. I was really strong-headed even then.

"I did a couple of things like running away when I was 11. I hopped a train with my friends. I was adventurous but never disrespectful. She wouldn't have put up with that."

Cher also revealed her mother wasn't entirely supportive of her relationship with the late Sonny Bono ? the father of her child, Chaz ? at first.

She said: "I had a little problem with her over Sonny but that didn't take long to get over. She listened first before making a judgment so I could always talk to her about my romances. She stressed the importance of being sure that person you are with is the person you love."
