Following news that legendary singer Gregg Allman had passed away, his ex-wife Cher took to social media to share several tributes. In a series of tweets, Cher conveyed her love for Allman, and the huge loss she was feeling upon hearing of his death.

The couple initially got married in 1975, following Cher's divorce from Sonny Bono. During her tumultuous relationship with Allman, Cher gave birth to their son, Elijah Blue, in 1976.

Even though the pair ultimately divorced, Cher's posts prove that there was a lot of love between the musicians.

In a heartbreaking interview with People in April 1978, Cher said, "Nobody ever made me feel as happy as Gregory did. God, he's wonderful. I don't understand why he can't see it. He's the kindest, most gentle, loving husband and father." He will be truly missed.
