Cher continued, “He started pushing me down the alleyway, and he said, ‘If you make a sound, I’ll kill you,’ then two fans, who later became friends, saw something was wrong, and they started screaming and ran towards me, and he ran away.”

She also spoke of her dislike of the modern mobile phone culture, “Everybody’s got a camera and it’s not safe. People rush you, and you don’t know if they’re going to kill you or take your picture. Either way, I don’t like it.”
