The singer called out the trolls who were hating on the 40-year age gap in her relationship, saying, “I’m Not Defending us. Haters are Gonna Hate…Doesn’ Matter That and Not Bothering Anyone.”

Other supposed fans questioned Edwards’s motives in dating a woman more than double his age, and Cher snapped back, “As we All Know …I WASNT 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.”

“LOVE DOESNT KNOW MATH, IT SEES,” Cher told another person who replied to her post. She also added to other commenters that “Everyone in my family has” met her new beau, and that he treats her “like a queen”

The couple met at Paris Fashion Week, the singer confirmed in the replies to her tweet. It’s possible that she was hinting at the new relationship last week when she vagueposted, “One part of my life is SO AMAZING” with a heart eyes emoji.

Cher was famously married to Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975, then singer Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979. She has previously been romantically entangled with big names like Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Gene Simmons, Warren Beatty, and David Geffen.

Edwards, meanwhile, formerly dated model Amber Rose, 39, with whom he had three-year-old son Slash Electric Alexander Edwards. Amber Rose accused Edwards of having a string of affairs in August of 2021, writing in her Instagram Story, “All 12 of y’all bums (the ones that I know of there’s probably more) can have him.” The music exec later confirmed the accusations while on Instagram Live with DJ Big Von.
