But of all the tweets, his ex-wife Cher's tweet was almost unbearable to read. In the tweet, she couldn't even write how she felt...Oh!...poor soul.

Gregg Allman Previous Marriages
Gregg is one of those rare people who despite getting married numerous times never found the right and special one that'll stick with him.
He married six different women in this lifetime. First marriage to Shelley Jefts, from 1971 to 1972, second to Janice Mulkey, from 1973 to 1974, third to Cher, from 1975 to 1979, fourth to Julie Bindas, from 1979 to 1984, fifth to Danielle Galliano, from 1989 to 1994, and last marriage to Stacey Fountain, which lasted from 2001 to 2008.
With his six wives, he shares five children, Devon Allman, Elijah Blue Allman, Delilah Island Allman, Michael Sean Allman, and Layla Brooklyn Allman.
His relationship with his third wife Cher is quite different from the rest. They tied the knot on June 31, 1975, and after only 9-days, she filed for divorce.
Flash forward one month and the pair got back together, only to get separated in 1977.
But after her ex-husband's death, Cher is still in a state of shock. From the bottom of our hearts, we wish that may the Allman family get all the strength they need in this tough situation.
May Gregg's soul rest in peace.
