While making an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Cher discussed her relationship with the 36-year-old artist. “On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous,” she admitted. “But in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous. And I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve.”
“He is very kind, very smart, he’s very talented, and he’s really funny,” Cher added, “And I think he’s quite handsome.”
Cher’s children are not in support of the relationship
Although the Moonstruck star has gathered the support of her friends and colleagues, her two sons from her previous marriages, Chaz Bono and Elijah Blue Allman are not happy about the relationship between their mom and the young singer.
An insider revealed that the 76-year-old’s children have accused Edwards of being a gold-digger and alleged that the 37-year-old is only playing around and intends to hop on the popularity and influence of their mom in the music industry for his personal gains.
However, on Cher’s part, she believes that her sons should put her happiness first instead of linking Edwards’ love for her to financial gains.

I’ve been a fan for so long that I’m immediately suspicious of his intentions towards you,” a fan commented, while another one added, “We know you are fabulous and I’m sure your inner circle will continue to have your back. Want you to be happy, but not taken advantage of!!!”
Responding to the trolls, the 76-year-old fired back at those who mentioned their age difference. “I’m Not Defending us,” she tweeted. “Haters are Gonna Hate…Doesn’ Matter That and Not Bothering Anyone.”
To her fans who inquired about Edwards’ thoughts towards the icon, she wrote, “As we All Know …I WASN’T BORN YESTERDAY,& What I Know For Sure…There Are No Guarantees,” the singer shed more light on her love life. “Anytime you make a Choice You Take a Chance. I’ve Always Taken Chances… It’s WHO I Am.” “LOVE DOESNT KNOW MATH, IT SEES,” Cher also replied in another tweet.
