Are Cher and Her 40-Years-Younger Boyfriend A.E. Edwards Dating Again?

They reportedly split in May, but that's an awful lot of hand-holding and dinner-having for exes.

She just wants to Cher her life with someone.

Musical icon Cher was spotted in Beverly Hills Friday in what was either a double-date-and-then-some, or possibly just a group hang. Either way, the 77-year-old musician was out with former flame Alexander “A.E.” Edwards, 37. According to Page Six, the pair were spotted hanging with singer J. Balvin and his girlfriend Valentina Ferrer, as well as rapper Tyga.

Edwards and Cher were seen holding hands as the group exited the restaurant, months after TMZ’s May reports that the two had split up. The two were first linked romantically in November 2022, and in March 2023, Cher said that she was hard at work on two albums with her beau.

“Some of the songs Alexander gave me, so I'm pretty excited about that,” she said of her studio work at the time. “He's a producer and a writer and he does everything, so I'm happy about that.”

Despite the large diamond ring Cher was sporting around the holidays last year, TMZ reported that the two were never engaged.

Edwards previously dated model Amber Rose, and they share a young son. Edwards publicly admitted to being unfaithful, and Rose, for her part, has said that since her relationship with Edwards, "I wanna be single for the rest of my life. I don't want to share my house or my life with anyone. I don't want anyone around my kids. I don't want to have sex...It's so gross. I don't want it.”

Cher, for her part, called her relationship with Edwards “kind of ridiculous on paper” in an interview last December. She gushed about him, and said, "Maybe younger men don't care if you're funny or outrageous and want to do stupid things and you have a strong personality. I'm not giving up my personality for anybody, ok?”

Cher turned 77 in May, the month of the reported split, and laughed in the face of those who thought her age made her…well…old.

“Ok, Will Someone PLEASE Tell me…..When Will I Feel OLD,” she tweeted. “This is ridiculous. I keep hearing these numbers, but I Honestly can’t understand them. WHATS THE DEAL WITH #’s I’m dyslexic & #’s Are hard 4 me.”

Age: Ain’t nothing but a number.
