"At first he looked like he was dead, but he had in fact passed out," a witness said of Allman. "The staff picked him up and took him inside."

In the past, Allman has spoken about his battle with substance abuse and admitted to using illicit substances as early as age 11. His battle with heroin has additionally been largely documented.

"I understand his family's efforts to make sure he is well, and I want what is best for my husband," King noted in the declaration on Cher's alleged drastic measure to get her son help.

Hotel staff present for Allman's extended stay commented on his concerning state, noting how he could frequently be seen "smoking" cigarettes that "always looked like it was dipped in something."

"He would come out with a full cigarette and by the time he had finished it, he would be passed out," one insider connected to the hotel claimed. Another chimed in, "He looked strung-out and messy, like he was a homeless person living on the streets."

Cher appeared to be aware of her son's state — and allegedly hired a caretaker to keep a close eye on his situation.

"The caretaker would sit out in the entrance area of the hotel just waiting to see where and what Elijah was up to," a source said.
