Cher has said ‘love doesn’t know math’ as she shared a topless photo of her 36-year-old boyfriend.
The 76-year-old singer recently revealed she was dating Alexander Edwards, who is 40 years younger than her, after meeting him two months back.
Sharing a snap of him wearing just his underpants on Twitter, Cher wrote: “A.E.Hanging Ot [sic]” following it up with the words: “We’re Grown ups.”
In another post, she added: “On paper This Looks strange (Even 2 ME) A.E Says [love heart] Doesn’t Know Math”.
Responding to her post, one fan said: “If your [sic] happy with AE, I mean truly happy, then who cares?? One person’s happiness doesn’t depend on what others think or say. Just my opinion."
To which Cher typed back: “BABE,SOME MARCH 2 A DIFFERENT DRUMMER,I Dance 2 One”.
According to reports, the pair met during Paris Fashion Week, which took place in September. And earlier this month, she shared a snap of him on social media alongside his name and a red love heart emoji.
When some fans expressed their concerns about the age-gap, the singer was quick to shut them down.
She wrote: “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.”
Cher also directly addressed the 40-year age gap between the pair.
When one follower tweeted: “Yess, 40-year age difference. Only Cher I love it!", the musician replied, “Love doesn’t know math, it sees [red heart emojis]. Rinpoche told me ‘some ppl [sic] meet, others ‘recognise’.”
And in another post, she said: "I’m Not Defending us. Haters are Gonna Hate…Doesn’t Matter That we’re Happy & Not Bothering Anyone."
Cher certainly needs no introduction, but if you’re wondering who Edwards is, he’s a fairly established name in the music industry.
He previously dated Amber Rose, with whom he shares three-year-old son Slash Electric Alexander Edwards - but the couple went their separate ways in 2021.
Cher has been married twice, firstly to Sonny Bono - with whom she formed pop duo Sonny & Cher - and then to Gregg Allman.
