Cher has spoken up on criticisms over her relationship with 36-year-old music producer Alexander “AE” Edwards, who is 40 years younger than she is.

The 76-year-old “Believe” singer revealed her new relationship by showing a photo of Edwards, accompanied by his name and a heart emoji, via her Twitter page last Sunday, Nov. 6. Edwards is an artist under rapper Tyga’s independent label Last Kings Records.

When asked by a fan if Edwards is her “new man,” Cher replied with a smiling face with hearts emoji. She also mentioned that he treats her “like a [queen].”

While many fans were supportive of Cher’s relationship with Edwards, some criticized it and were “suspicious” of the music producer’s “intentions” with the pop star.

“As we all know… I wasn’t born yesterday [and] 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,” she replied to a fan on Twitter last Sunday.

Cher also stressed she does not “give a f*ck what anyone thinks” about her relationship.

Cher then stressed in a Twitter post yesterday that she does not intend to “defend” the age difference between herself and her boyfriend.

“I’m not defending us. Haters are gonna hate… [Doesn’t] matter that we’re happy [and] not bothering anyone,” she said.

Cher also responded to a fan who cheered her on for finding love despite the 40-year age gap, as seen in a now-deleted tweet which was reposted by The Shade Room on Instagram yesterday.

“Love doesn’t know math, it sees,” she said.

Cher was previously married to late singer Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975, and to singer-songwriter Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979, as per People. Edwards himself was previously in a relationship with model Amber Rose, with whom he shares a son.  /ra
