The unlikely duo struck up their mother-son relationship when the “You’re Beautiful” singer needed a place to stay while recording his debut album in Los Angeles, and Carrie offered her home as a spot to crash.

Of the experience, James said he “lived in a madhouse with her,” which ultimately inspired the name of his album, Back to Bedlam.

While staying in her home, James said Carrie predicted her own death. “She put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room, with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead,” he said. “I’m trying to remember what the date was, because it was around now—and I remember thinking it was too soon.”

Despite the oddities of his stay, James and Carrie formed a strong bond, and the singer asked her to be the godfather of his only child. “The saddest thing is that my son will never get to know someone I thought was the most special person,” he said.
