Cher’s son Chaz Bono has asked a judge in Los Angeles to formally change his name and gender following the sex change surgery he had last year.
The 41-year-old, who was born Chastity Sun Bono, now wants to be known as Chaz Salvatore, according to a petition filed earlier this week.
He revealed last June he had undergone the surgery calling it “the best decision I’ve ever made”.
At the time, Cher promised to support her child on his “difficult journey”.
