Cher has spoken out about the large age gap between her and her new boyfriend as she argues ‘love doesn’t know math.’

The Believe singer, 76, is in a relationship with music producer Alexander Edwards, 36, and has dismissed the 40-year-age gap between them on several occasions.

With the couple having been spotted holding hands on dates night and sharing snaps of one another to social media, Cher and Alexander seem totally loved up.

Now the If I Could Turn Back Time icon has defended the age gap once again, telling those who are concerned: ‘We’re grown ups.’

The star took to Twitter on Thursday where she shared a snap of a topless Alexander grinning at the camera, wearing only a pair of black shorts, and captioned it: ‘A.E. (Alexander Edwards) hanging out.’

While the comment section was filled mainly with fans lending words of support or generally fangirling, some asked about the age gap.
