Cher isn’t being coy regarding her relationship with Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards.

The 76-year-old pop icon discussed her new relationship with her 36-year-old boyfriend on the Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday.

“On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous,” Cher said. “But in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous. And I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve.”

In October 2019, Edwards and Amber Rose had a child. Slash Electric Alexander Edwards is a very musical name that the parents made sure to give their child before divorcing in 2021 due to repeated affairs.

“Slash a rockstar,” Edwards wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.

Cher is known for dating men younger than her – Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and Rob Camilletti.

Cher admitted to PEOPLE in 2021, “The truth was if I hadn’t gone out with younger men, I would have never had a date. Younger men weren’t intimidated by older women. But older men in my age category, they weren’t having it.”
