Legendary singer Cher has publicly supported her boyfriend, Alexander “AE” Edwards, following his recent altercation with rapper Travis Scott at a high-profile Cannes party.

The incident occurred on May 23 during Richie Akiva’s “THE AFTER” party, part of the Cannes Film Festival festivities.

Cher, 78, took to social media on June 1 to express her pride in Edwards, emphasizing that he did not initiate the fight but was compelled to defend himself.

“I’m Proud of Alexander,” Cher wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. “He Didn’t Start The fight against 2 Men,… He finished it, Gotta Love Him.”

The altercation, captured on video by an attendee, showed Edwards, 38, and Scott, 33, engaging in a physical confrontation near the DJ booth, where Scott was performing.

Edwards’ friend, rapper Tyga, 34, was also present on stage during the incident. The exact cause of the fight remains unclear.

The backdrop of the altercation involves a tangled web of past relationships, as both Scott and Tyga have been romantically linked to Kylie Jenner.

Scott shares two children with Jenner, while Tyga dated her from 2014 to 2017. This history may have contributed to underlying tensions leading up to the altercation.

Edwards addressed the incident and Cher’s reaction in a recent interview with TMZ. When asked if Cher was upset by his involvement in the fight, Edwards responded with a resolute “hell nah.”

He reinforced his point by quoting a line from Future and Metro Boomin’s song “GTA,” saying, “Like Future say, ‘Whatever I’m with, my bitch with it, too,’” before clarifying, “My woman, but the lyrics are the lyrics.”

Edwards also dismissed speculation about potential wedding plans, stating, “Aye bro, listen, we happy. We’re a happy family.”

His relationship with Cher, which began in late 2022, has been a subject of public interest and media scrutiny due to their significant age difference and high-profile status.

The couple’s romance began after they met briefly at a 2022 Paris Fashion Week event. A mutual friend later shared Cher’s contact information with Edwards, a move Cher initially found surprising.

“It was really shocking because people just don’t give out my number,” Cher told PEOPLE in an October 2023 interview.

Despite her initial reservations about dating a younger man and the unconventional start to their relationship, Cher found herself captivated by Edwards.

“I had been telling all my friends, ‘We’re too old to go out with really younger men, and I will never fall in love on text.’ So I did what I said not to do!” Cher revealed.

Reflecting on their relationship, Cher described Edwards as a “beautiful” man who brings joy and laughter into her life. “No matter what happens, I love being with him,” she said.

“He makes me laugh, and we have fun. What I learned is that it’s never too late. 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.”

The public’s fascination with Cher and Edwards’ relationship highlights broader themes of love, age, and societal expectations.

Cher’s defiance of conventional norms and her embrace of a younger partner challenge stereotypes and inspire discussions about age and romance.

Their relationship, marked by public displays of affection and mutual admiration, underscores the notion that love can transcend age and societal judgment.

The altercation involving Edwards and Scott adds a layer of complexity to their public narrative. While physical confrontations are typically viewed negatively, Cher’s staunch support for Edwards suggests a deep bond and unwavering loyalty.

Her pride in Edwards’ actions, despite the controversy, illustrates a dynamic where personal connection and support override public opinion.

As Cher and Edwards continue their relationship, their story serves as a testament to the unpredictable and transformative nature of love.

Their journey together, marked by public scrutiny and personal joy, challenges preconceived notions and celebrates the unconventional paths that relationships can take.
