The singer wrote that her boyfriend gifted her the rock for Christmas. While it could certainly go on any finger, fans speculated that the duo might have gotten engaged.
“THERE R NO WORDS, ALEXANDER,A.E,” the 76-year-old singer wrote, sharing a photo of the massive sparkler in a ring box.
The tweet sent fans into believing that Cher was announcing her engagement to the 36-year-old music producer.
“OMG did he propose to you!!!?? Mama lovely ,” one fan commented on the post.
“Wait wait wait hold uppp!! Is that a diamond ring or a ring with diamonds???? What does it meeeaaaan?????????” a second person tweeted.
“Congrats Cher! You deserve all the happiness. Let me know when and where,” another wrote.
But Cher did not respond to the engagement rumors.
“I posted this cause his nails are so cool,” Cher wrote in a tweet nearly an hour later. However, despite the explanation, fans continued to ask whether it was an engagement ring or just an over-the-top Christmas present.
“Did he propose or what..??” someone asked.
The singer was first linked to AE when the two were spotted holding hands as they were at Craig’s in West Hollywood in November.
Several people at the time slammed their 40-year age gap. Cher defended their relationship at the time, tweeting, “Love doesn’t know math.”
Days later, she shared a photo of AE with a heart emoji and tweeted: “I’m not defending us. Haters are gonna hate. Doesn’t matter that we’re happy and not bothering anyone.”
“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 added.
