Cher Commits to Helping Virginia Woman, 96, to Return Home

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A judge says a 96-year-old woman whose late-life marriage to a 95-year-old beau was widely publicized should be returned to her longtime northern Virginia home after the musician Cher promised to pay to fix it up.

In a court deposition, Cher said she was inspired last year by a news story about Edith Hill and her newlywed husband, Eddie Harrison.

Their marriage became embroiled in a court dispute over whether Hill had the mental capacity to marry her companion.

Harrison died in December, less than a year after the wedding, but a custody dispute continued over who should care for Hill.

Cher said she will help pay for upgrades to Hill's family home in Alexandria. Earlier this month, a judge said Hill should return there once repairs are complete.
