The legendary Cher has revealed that she is in a relationship with music producer Alexander Edwards, 40 years her junior, saying that "love knows no math". The singer, 76, confirmed her romance with 36-year-old Edwards, sending a series of messages about the producer treating her "like a queen".
Speaking about their age difference, she said: “love doesn’t know math!”. The singer - who has previously dated Tom Cruise, Kiss star Gene Simmons, and Warren Beaty and was married to Sonny Bono for 10 years - confirmed romance speculation after the pair were seen holding hands at a Hollywood restaurant last week at Craig's.
A fan asked her to confirm the rumors, and the delighted star responded with a love emoji and said on another social network that Edwards treats her like a queen.
A number of fans have expressed their concerns
Another follower expressed their concern regarding Edwards’ “intentions”.
“We know you are fabulous and I'm sure your inner circle will continue to have your back. Want you to be happy, but not taken advantage of!!!,” they wrote. Cher stated: “As we All Know …I WASN’T BORN YESTERDAY, & 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”. In response to those criticising the couple’s 40-year age-gap, she simply tweeted: “ 'I’m Not Defending us.
Haters are Gonna Hate…Doesn’t Matter That we’re Happy & Not Bothering Anyone”. Alexander previously dated Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose and admitted he cheated on her during their relationship, but Cher quelled fans' fears about him by saying: "I'm in love, I'm not blinded by it." In August, Amber took to Instagram to air her grievances: "I'm tired of getting cheated on and being embarrassed behind the scenes.
All 12 of y'all bums (the ones that I know of there's probably more) can have him' she continued. 'Y'all very much knew he was in a relationship with a baby and y'all decided to f**k him anyway. I saw all the texts and DM's. Y'all were well aware but y'all don't owe me any loyalty so it's whatever." Last week, the pair were snapped having dinner with Kylie Jenner's ex-boyfriend, Tyga, where they held hands.
