76-Years Old Singer Cher Defends Dating Alexander, 40 Years Her Junior

Celebrated singer Cher is standing by her new man now that she has found love in his arms.

Days after she was spotted holding hands with 36-year-old music executive Alexander “AE” Edwards, the legendary singer over the weekend sent out a series of tweets about her new relationship, implying to one follower that she wasn’t bothered by the 40-year age gap between the two.

“LOVE DOESN’T KNOW MATH, IT SEES ❤️ ❤️,” Cher, 76, said in a since-deleted tweet captured by The Shade Room.

She went on to refer to a lesson she learned from Sogyal Rinpoche, the late Tibetan Buddhist teacher and best-selling author who died in 2019.

“Rinpoche told me, ‘Some people meet, others recognize,’ ” Cher wrote.

The “Believe” songstress also shared a photo of Edwards, simply writing “Alexander ❤️.” When asked if it was her new man, she responded with a “🥰” emoji.

Edwards has been treating Cher like a “queen,” she told a fan, noting to another that “everyone in my family has” met him.

The two met during Paris Fashion Week back in September, she said. He’s an artist on rapper Tyga’s independent label Last Kings Records and was last linked to model Amber Rose, with whom he shares a 3-year-old son, Slash.

That relationship ended in August 2021 after three years together, with Rose appearing to accuse Edwards of cheating on her with at least 12 different people (the SlutWalk founder wrote on her Instagram Story she was “tired of getting cheated on and being embarrassed behind the scenes”).

He later admitted his infidelity, saying in an Instagram Live that he “got caught” stepping out on Rose. “At the end, I don’t think anybody can be happy or successful if you’re not truly yourself, whether other people understand it or blame you … ” he said at the time. “It’s just who I am, and it’s not how [Rose] wants to be loved.”

With that in mind, many of Cher’s fans tweeted her over the weekend, warning the music icon of his past history of cheating. But Cher made it clear she wasn’t going into this with her eyes closed.

“BABE ENGLISH IS MY FIRST LANGUAGE,” she told one follower, in a deleted tweet captured by the Shade Room. “I’M IN ❤️ NOT BLINDED BY IT. KNOW WHAT I KNOW … SMOKE DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN 🔥.”

“As we all know … I WASN’T BORN YESTERDAY,” Cher wrote to another fan who said they were suspicious of Edwards’s intentions. “What I know for sure, there are no guarantees. Anytime you make a choice, you take a chance. I’ve always taken chances … it’s who I am.”

“I’m not defending us,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Haters are gonna hate … Doesn’t matter that we’re happy and not bothering anyone.”

Cher was previously married to Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975, and to Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979.

In the 1980s, she dated several men that were decades her junior, including Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise and Rob Camilletti.
