Bono`s parents are Sony and Cher, major TV and music stars of the ’60s and ’70s, who shepparded him throughout his entire childhood. As of an early age, well before the sex change, he was featured in his parents show “Sony And Cher Comedy Hour”. In 1975, his parents divorced and he needed to divide his time between being at his mother`s and his father`s homes, until he moved to New York in order to attend the High School For Performing Arts.
Following graduation, he enrolled at New York University; however he soon gave up on his studies and decided to pursue a career in music. He formed a group called Ceremony, which consisted of musicians such as Heidi Shink, Pete McRae, Louis Ruiz, Bryan Mathieu and Steve Bauman. The band released its debut album in 1993 entitled “Hang Out Your Poetry”, which actually turned out to be their only album, but started the growth of Chaz’s net worth.
In 1998, Chaz published his first book, entitled “Family Outing”, which deals with his sexuality on the whole, including of course coming out as a lesbian. He has released three more books which have also added to his net worth. In 2002, he released the book entitled “The End Of Innocence: A Memoir”. In 2011, his third book was released, “Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man” and it was followed by the release of “Transition: Becoming Who I Was Always Meant to Be” in 2012.
When it comes to his TV appearances, he was featured in the 13th season of the TV show “Dancing With Stars”, partnering professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer.
In his less-than-private personal life, Chaz says that he always felt uncomfortable in the dresses he wore, even in his childhood days, stating that he wanted to look more like his father. Eventually, he began with his sex change in 2008, and the whole process was finished in 2010, when he legally changed his name to Chaz Salvatore Bono. He has described the change in his books, and a documentary was filmed, entitled “Becoming Chaz” (2011). He has been recognized as a fearsome fighter for LGBT rights, being a member of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation organization, and has been a spokesman for the Human Rights Activist Campaign.
Chaz Bono was engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jennifer Elia, but they broke up in 2011. One can imagine the difficulties on both sides of such a relationship.
