After reports had come out that the pair had spent time together at Cher’s malibu mansion, she took to Twitter to clarify the news.

She posted a picture of Edwards with the caption ‘Alexander’ and a heart emoji.

Then one fan expressed their concern by replying: “I’m not sure how I feel about this.

“I’ve been a fan for so long that I’m immediately suspicious of his intentions towards you.

“WE know you are fabulous and I’m sure your inner circle will continue to have your back. Want you to be happy, but not taken advantage of!!!”

Cher then responded to this person by commenting: “As we All Know …I WASN’T BORN YESTERDAY and What I Know For Sure…There Are No Guarantees.
