Cher is showing off her new boyfriend on Twitter, sharing a thirst trap of the producer to her 4 million followers and is defending her relationship with him.

Taking to Twitter Wednesday, the "Turn Back Time" signer posted a snap of Alexander "A.E." Edwards. The shirtless music exec is seen smiling and showing off his tattoos and painted nails, wearing nothing but his underwear.

"A.E. hanging [out]," Cher tweeted, adding a follow up tweet aimed at haters: "We're grown ups."

The Daily Mail reports the relationship has raised eyebrows due to the age gap — Cher is 40 years older than her new boyfriend as the Oscar winner is 76 and Edwards is 36. In another tweeted posted early Thursday morning, she acknowledged her relationship "looks strange on paper" but said Edwards says love "doesn't know math."

One fan shared support for the icon, writing: "If you're happy with AE, I mean truly happy, then who cares?? One person's happiness doesn't depend on what others think or say Just my opinion." Cher responded: "BABE,SOME MARCH 2 A DIFFERENT DRUMMER,I Dance 2 One."

The pair were first spotted together two months ago, seen holding hands at the famous Hollywood restaurant Craig's before returning to Cher's home, and have been seen going on several dates ever since, the Daily Mail reports.

This isn't the first time Cher has clapped back at haters over her new relationship. Earlier this month, she once again tweeted that "LOVE DOESN'T KNOW MATH, IT SEES LOVE," adding heart emojis. That tweet was soon deleted.

Before dating Cher, Edwards dated model Amber Rose for three years and they have a son together. Their relationship allegedly ended due to cheating rumors involving Edwards. He took to social media to cop to his ways cheating ways and admitted that the way he loves.

When fans made sure Cher caught wind of his cheating past, she set the record straight by saying: "BABE ENGLISH IS MY FIRST LANGUAGE," she told one follower, in a deleted tweet captured by the Shade Room. "I'M IN [love] NOT BLINDED BY IT. KNOW WHAT I KNOW ... SMOKE DOESN'T ALWAYS MEAN [fire]."
