Is Cher In A Relationship, Who Has She Dated? Meet Her Current Boyfriend, Husbands, Exes, Dating History

Cher’s relationship history proves she’s got way more than one babe – who is the singer dating currently?

Pop culture icon Cher has enjoyed a memorable career that spans an impressive seven decades. Beyond her immense professional success, the singer and Academy Award winner also boasts an impressive list of past husbands and boyfriends.

From her two marriages to musical royalty, to being coupled up with some of the most famous guys in Hollywood, to relationships with under-the-radar men (one of whom Cher claims is the one who got away), let’s turn back time and review everyone this mega-talent has romanced over the years.

Sonny and Cher seemed to have it all until they didn’t.

In the 1960s and ‘70s, Sonny and Cher were not only a musical group but a couple, according to Smooth Radio. But it turned out that their business partnership lasted longer than their love for one another. In 1972, Sonny Bono confessed in his diary, “The public still thinks we are married [and] that’s the way it has to be.”

Ultimately, Cher and her first husband were together for 13 years, married for six, but actually wanting to be married for just three years, according to History. Their union produced one child, Chaz Bono. They divorced in 1974.

Cher romanced record executive David Geffen, who later came out as gay.

While her divorce from Sonny was being finalized in 1973, Cher got together with David Geffen. In The Operator, a book about the record exec by Tom King, Cher shared, “We were really crazy about each other,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

They split after two years, however.

Cher quickly married Gregg Allman, but it didn’t last.

Just days after her divorce from Sonny was officially finalized, Cher said “I do” again to Allman Brothers founding member Gregg Allman. According to the Mirror, sadly, Gregg’s drug problems led to Cher filing for divorce after just a week and half — but she soon called off calling it off.

From 1975 until 1979, the couple would endure a rocky road, then divorce, but not before having a child, Elijah Blue Allman. Cher never married again but went on to have a string of high-profile romances.

Gene Simmons was head over heels for Cher in the late 1970s.

Kiss rocker Gene Simmons claimed to be “crazy about Cher” and “nuts about her” in 1979, telling People, “She’s my first love.” The duo even talked about getting married, with Cher saying this was “the best relationship I’ve ever had with a human being.”

Those warm and fuzzy feelings ended after he fell for her BFF Diana Ross when the two went Christmas shopping together for a gift for Cher that same year, according to InStyle.

Cher connected with Tom Cruise over their shared challenges.

Talk about a Hollywood meet cute! Believe it or note, Cher met her next beau, Tom Cruise, at Sean Penn and Madonna’s wedding. As she recounted to the Daily Mail, “Then a bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic.”

They dated briefly, with Cher confiding that Tom was one of the “greatest lovers ever.”

Cher moved on to one of the loves of her life.

Although the singer also dated Val Kilmer — “When we kissed I thought my head would shoot right off my body” she told the Daily Mail about their connection — as well as Eric Stoltz in the 1980s. But those A-listers apparently couldn’t hold a candle to Robert Camilletti, per PopSugar.

Nicknamed “Bagel Boy,” he met Cher in the 1980s while she was celebrating her 40th birthday, per Yahoo! He was only 22 years old, and, you guessed it, worked in a bagel shop.

Robert was notably Cher’s date for the 1988 Oscars when she took home the Best Actress statue for her performance in Moonstruck. The two lasted until 1989, when, much like the original coupling of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, media attention around their relationship got to be too much. However, reportedly the ex-lovers are still in one another’s lives as friends.

Cher told The Guardian in 2020 that Robert and Gregg were the loves of her life.

Cher briefly dated Richie Sambora.

Cher and Richie made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 1989 VMAs, per Us Weekly. Their romance was fleeting, however. They split soon after that and he went on to marry Heather Locklear, according to People.

Cher seemed to take a break from dating until meeting a biker.

Cher remained friends with other exes, including Ron Zimmerman.

It seems Cher knows how to be friends with exes. Another example was a film and TV producer she dated after Hell’s Angels biker Tim Medvetz. Sadly, Ron died in July of 2022, per PopCulture, with Cher posting about the tragedy on her Twitter account.

Per WhosDatedWho, Cher has been in relationships with Tim Medvetz (2009 – 2013), Joshua Donen (1984 – 1986), Eric Stoltz (1984 – 1985), Les Dudek (1980 – 1982), and Jeff Verrilli (1961 – 1962).

Singer Cher is currently dating Amber Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Alexander Edwards, and they are rumored to be engaged.

Page Six reports that the 76-year-old was seen getting close with Amber Rose’s ex-boyfriend, music executive Alexander “AE” Edwards, who is only 36. The maybe-couple was holding hands after a Los Angeles dinner with Tyga in early November 2022, per TMZ.

It is confirmed that the 76-year-old singer is currently dating Alexander Edwards. Shortly after, it was rumored that they have been engaged.

“On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous,” Cher admitted on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “But in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous.

PageSix reports that Cher fueled even more rumors that she’s engaged to Alexander “AE” Edwards after the two spent New Year’s Eve together.

Of course, those are Cher’s words, but the two looked much happier than “okay” as they made their way to dinner at Avra in Beverly Hills. Given the paps’ request, they shared a few kisses and got all lovey-dovey. Furthermore, the “Believe” star flashed her diamond ring for all to see. However, may eagle-eyed viewers noticed on social media that she wore it on her middle finger.

Cher first shared the ring around Christmastime last year, captioning a picture of it on Twitter with “THERE R NO WORDS.” As such, many fans speculated on whether it was the real deal, or just some teasing.

Moreover, the couple first sparked rumors of a relationship in November of 2022. When people snapped pictures of them holding hands, the Internet lit up with bewildered or excited reactions. What’s more is that Cher often dismissed criticisms of their relationship’s age gap, and did so quite cheekily on social media.

“This should Send you Haters to The Part in Wizzard of OZ…” she wrote in a New Year’s post. “WHEN DOROTHY THREW WATER ON THE wicked Witch & Melted her.”

“I have had a couple boyfriends that were hovering around my age, but they just didn’t like me for some reason,” she told The Kelly Clarkson Show. “And maybe younger men don’t care if you’re funny or outrageous and want to do stupid things, and you have the strong personality. I’m not giving up my personality for anybody, okay?” Strong words from the Goddess of Pop.

“On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous,” Cher admitted on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “But in real life, we get along great. He’s fabulous.
