Edwards previously dated Kanye West’s ex Amber Rose, 39, with whom he shares three-year-old son Slash Electric Alexander Edwards.
In August 2021, Rose accused the producer of having multiple affairs. She wrote on Instagram Stories, per People: “All 12 of y’all bums (the ones that I know of there’s probably more) can have him.”
Edwards later appeared on Instagram Live with DJ Big Von to discuss the accusations and admitted they were true.
Meanwhile, Cher was married to Sonny Bono between 1964 and 1975 and to the late singer Gregg Allman between 1975 and 1979. She has also been romantically linked to Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, record label boss David Geffen, and Kiss frontman Gene Simmons.
