Cher says she’s ‘proud’ of boyfriend Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards’ following his fight with Travis Scott: ‘He didn’t start’ it

Cher is full of love and understanding.

The “Believe” singer, 78, has spoken out after her boyfriend, Alexander “AE” Edwards, was involved in a physical altercation with rapper Travis Scott in Cannes, France during the annual film festival last week.

“He Didn’t Start The fight Against 2 Men,… He finished it, Gotta Love Him,” she wrote on X Saturday.

She also gushed about how “proud” she was of Edwards for the way he handled the situation.

Edwards told TMZ something similar when he was stopped outside of LAX airport and asked about the fight on Wednesday.

When asked how he felt about the altercation, the music executive told the photographer, “Whatever I’m with, my bitch with it too.”

In the next breath, he cleaned up his comment and referred to the singer as “my woman,” telling them that they’re “happy” together.

As Page Six previously reported, Scott and Edwards, 38, got into a fight while attending Richie Akiva’s annual “The After” afterparty in Cannes, France, where they nearly injured a horde of women in the brawl.

“Models were flying everywhere in the melee,” a source said at the time. “Someone got hit with an ice bucket.”

Another source named the “Astroworld” hitmaker as the “aggressor” behind the fight after he was allegedly upset with Akiva for shouting out Edwards and his pal, Tyga, on the mic.

Scott reportedly snatched the microphone away from Akiva, which prompted Edwards to tell the rapper to “let him show love.”

“He and his team were being neurotic, erratic and crazy. He was there looking for a fight with anyone to be honest,” the source said.

While Tyga and Scott have history considering they both dated Kylie Jenner, sources said the “Kardashians” star was not the cause of their drama.

“The history is there [but] it’s not like that’s necessarily what was the cause [of this fight],” the insider shared.

However, they admitted that there is longstanding tension between the two men because of their shared ex.
