She’s loved-up with a new flame but her family have serious concerns


After a romantic chance meeting in Paris, Cher and her new lover Alexander Edwards have moved extremely fast. Friends say the hitmaker is so smitten with her 36-year-old toyboy that she’s secretly planning a quickie Vegas wedding – and now the family are facing shock reports that she’s considerin­g cutting her disapprovi­ng sons out of her $500 million will.

Those around the iconic 76-year-old singer say she is utterly convinced the music producer is the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with and is seeing red over the fact her sons Chaz Bono, 53, and Elijah Blue Allman, 46, have not supported the relationsh­ip.

“Cher is furious that Chaz and Elijah are against her marriage,” a source exclusivel­y tells Woman’s Day. “She’s blaming them for overshadow­ing her blissful happiness with Alexander. She refuses to understand that they’re worried and actually trying to help.”

Sadly, there seems to be a growing “miscommuni­cation” in the family, with sources saying that sons Elijah and Chaz couldn’t care less about Cher’s money – noting they both have careers of their own – but simply fear their mother is moving way too fast with a man she doesn’t know.


It’s believed some of Cher’s friends have gently warned her to listen to her boys, but she refuses, and the more anyone talks about it, “the less she wants to hear it”. Things have become so tense that sources have told Radar Online Cher is extremely upset with her sons, whom she shared with the late Sonny Bono and Gregg Allman, and is ready to move on with Alexander with or without their approval.

“She’s been hellbent on marrying this guy and is speaking to her lawyers about adjusting her will to make AE [Alex] her sole beneficiar­y,” says an insider.

Cher and AE have been showcasing their affection since revealing their unlikely romance in November. The following month, the Believe songstress was flashing her reported $250,000 engagement ring from Alex on Twitter.

Such public displays are said to be seriously stressing out her two children.

While Cher is said to be avoiding serious conversati­ons about her relationsh­ip or will at the moment, sources insist she knows all too well the importance of family and hope she changes her tune – and fast!
