The rumors of Cher dating the musician and Universal Music Group executive were first heard in November 2022.
Cher did not make a solo red carpet entry this Grammy weekend. The Grammy winner and Hall of Fame inductee, 76, walked hand-in-hand with boyfriend Alexander "AE" Edwards, 36 on February 4. They flaunted their casual couple's style during Steven Victor and Tod's Pre-Grammy party celebrating nominees Pusha T and The Dream at Matsuhisa Beverly Hills, as per PEOPLE.
For the occasion, Cher donned a shimmering white Chrome Hearts jacket trimmed in black, layered over a sparkling top. She finished the look with a pair of gray trousers featuring black trim down the sides, black boots, and a matching leather purse.

AE wore a brown Victor Victor letterman jacket over a tan shirt with black slacks; completing the ensemble with thin sunglasses, a flashy necklace and a pair of leather loafers hand-painted with a mountain view.
The rumors of Cher dating the musician and Universal Music Group executive were first heard in November 2022, when they were spotted holding hands in Los Angeles. In November 2022, Cher also spoke up about the public reaction to her relationship. "Haters are gonna hate ... Doesn't matter that we're happy and not bothering anyone," she tweeted.
The Burlesque star later shunned the critics of the couple's age gap. "LOVE DOESN'T KNOW MATH, IT SEES ❤️ ❤️," Cher wrote in a since-deleted tweet. She went on to state a lesson she learned from Sogyal Rinpoche, the late Tibetan Buddhist teacher and best-selling author who died in 2019. "Rinpoche told me, 'Some people meet, others recognize,' " Cher wrote.

Edwards previously dated model and TV personality Amber Rose, and the two share a 3-year-old son Slash. Engagement rumors were sparked in December 2022, when she shared a photo of a diamond ring AE bought her, which she loves to flash. "THERE R NO WORDS," Cher wrote at the time. As for Cher, she has dated younger men in the past including Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and Rob Camilletti, all of whom are over a decade younger. "The truth was if I hadn't gone out with younger men, I would have never had a date," Cher said.
After Cher's mother Georgia Holt's death at the age of 96 in December 2022, a source told PEOPLE that the singer's new relationship with AE "has helped ease the pain of the loss." In another tweet, she wrote that she wished she could have shown her diamond ring to her late mother.
