Edwards is 37 years old and Cher is 77, but the Grammy winner isn't fazed by the decades between the two. "LOVE DOESN'T KNOW MATH, IT SEES ❤️ ❤️," Cher wrote in a since-deleted tweet captured by The Shade Room.

Cher has a history of dating men her junior, including Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise and Rob Camilletti in the 1980s.

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

In October 2023, Cher spoke to PEOPLE about finding love in her seventies.

"What I learned is that it’s never too late," she said. "If you wrote out all the statistics, you would go, ‘Well, this is doomed.’ But we’ve been together a year, and if it was just a year, it would’ve been worth it. I’ve had the best time."

Cher continued, "He’s special. No matter what happens, I love being with him. He makes me laugh, and we have fun."

"I left to go to Switzerland, and he texted me. He said, 'Where are you going?' I said, 'I'm going to Switzerland, I'm a little tired.' And then he wrote me, 'Well, get some rest babyyy.' And I went, he doesn't know me well enough to put three y's on baby," the "Believe" singer said. "I was kind of pissed off. And then he just started texting me."

She continued, "I told my friends, don't fall in love with a younger man, we're too old, and don't ever fall in love by text. There goes that theory."
