Cher poked fun at the yawning 40-year age gap between her and her new boyfriend, music executive Alexander Edwards. 

The 76-year-old singer held forth about her 36-year-old toyboy during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week.

She hailed Alexander as ‘very kind’ and added: ‘He’s very smart, he’s very talented and he’s really funny so – and I think he’s quite handsome.’ 

Cher noted: ‘If I hadn’t met younger men in my life, I would have never had a date, because older men just didn’t like me all that much, do you know what I mean?’

The If I Could Turn Back Time singer had ‘a couple boyfriends’ who were ‘hovering around my age’ but she felt that ‘they just didn’t like me for some reason.’

Cher shot to fame in the 1960s alongside her mentor and first husband Sonny Bono, whom she met when he was 28 and she was just 16.

On the town: After a storm of rumors that they were an item, Cher finally confirmed on Instagram last month that she is dating Alexander

By the mid-1970s their romance crumbled into a rancorous divorce, which she filed for on grounds of ‘involuntary servitude.’

On Kelly’s show she said: ‘Younger men don’t care if you’re, you know, funny or outrageous and wanna do stupid things and, you know, and you have a strong personality, you know? I mean I’m not giving up my personality for anybody, okay?’ 

After a storm of rumors that they were an item, Cher finally confirmed on Instagram last month that she is dating Alexander.

When another fan on Twitter brought up the massive age gap, she retorted: ‘LOVE DOESNT KNOW MATH, IT SEES [hearts].’

Cher has a longtime fondness for sensationally younger men, such as Rob Camilletti, whom she took up with in the 1980s when she was 40 and he 22.

Rob, who became known as the ‘Bagel Boy’ because he worked in a bagel shop, was Cher’s Oscar date when she won best actress for Moonstruck in 1988.

Amber and Alexander began dating in 2018 only for their relationship to go down in flames over the summer of 2021 as she slammed him for his serial infidelity.

‘All 12 of y’all bums (the ones that I know of there’s probably more) can have him,’ she seethed on social media. ‘Y’all very much knew he was in a relationship with a baby and y’all decided to f**k him anyway. I saw all the texts and DM’s. Y’all were well aware but y’all don’t owe me any loyalty so it’s whatever.’ 

Alexander then publicly admitted on Instagram Live that he had cheated on Amber, describing unfaithfulness as his ‘true nature.’

Warm words: Cher has now hailed Alexander as ‘very kind’ and added: ‘He’s very smart, he’s very talented and he’s really funny so – and I think he’s quite handsome’ 

When he started running around with Cher, her fans began warning her on Twitter about his history of infidelity to the point she issued a response.

‘BABE, ENGLISH IS MY FIRST LANGUAGE, I’M IN [HEART] NOT BLINDED BY IT,’ she wrote. ‘KNOW WHAT I KNOW…SMOKE DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN [FIRE].’

Another fan fretted in her replies about the possibility that she might get ‘taken advantage of,’ to which she replied: ‘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.’
