Cher and Alexander “A.E.” Edwards have been long in love and their relationship stands boldly against social norms and rules, separated by a 40-year age gap. Cher, age 77, and Edwards, age 37, started their journey when they went public in November 2022, and it has been a relationship filled with highs and lows.
October and November 2022
In October 2022 they met during Paris Fashion Week through a common friend. Cher found Edwards “so special” that she was prepared to bend her own rules that said no going out with younger men.
On November 1, Cher tweeted, “One part of my life is SO AMAZING,” and within a day a couple was photographed walking with rapper Tyga hand-in-hand. The same month, Cher also uploaded some images of Edwards and had a chat with her fans, describing the traits of her boyfriend that she would never trade for anything in the world. She described him as gentle, clever, and witty, highlighting how they suited each other.
December 25, 2022: Sparking Engagement Rumors
Cher posted an image of an outstanding pear-shaped diamond ring on Christmas Day, making many wonder whether the couple had gotten engaged during the holiday season.
She didn’t confirm or deny the rumors, but she did say in another tweet that she only posted the photo because Edwards’ nails were so cool.
In her New Year’s Eve post, Cher referred to Edwards as daddy while sporting the supposed engagement ring on her middle finger. Cher also wore the ring while having a candlelit supper with Edwards a couple of days later. The two also had a magical moment at MAC’s event white sporting similar new blonde hair.
Cher admitted they had been working on a music partnership. She was overjoyed with the songs she received from him. This collaboration implied how close they were, not only on a personal level but also in the workplace. But in May, it was reported that the couple separated “a few weeks ago.”
September and October 2023
However, a few months later in September, the couple was photographed hand in hand going out to dinner. This hinted towards a patch-up and sent shock amongst fans.
As October 2023 rolled in, Cher and Edwards celebrated their one-year anniversary. Cher expressed her happiness, highlighting the joy and laughter in their relationship. Despite the odds, they were still going strong.
