From serenading fans' ears with her sensational music since the 1960s to appearing on several Broadway shows, iconic singer, Cher, seems to have found a new calling! 

The songstress, often referred to by the media as the "Goddess of Pop," gained recognition after she and songwriter Salvatore [Sonny] Bono, whom she married in 1964, released their first big pop hit ''I Got You Babe'' in 1965.  

Going on to win an Academy Award and getting immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Cher certainly knows her onions. However, the singer recently branched out into the world of desserts!

Cher's decision to focus on making and selling Gelato comes as a delight to fans after it was reported that she and her music producer boyfriend, Alexander 'A.E.' Edwards, decided to end their romantic relationship.

An insider close to the pair confirmed that the once-in-love couple parted ways after more than six months of dating. Although the anonymous source did not state the reason for their separation, they, however, clarified that the engagement rumors about the former lovers were untrue.

According to the source, Edwards and Cher were never engaged to be married, despite the singer receiving a massive diamond wedding ring last Christmas. They nevertheless decided to go with the speculation that it was an engagement ring.

Based on the ''After All" singer's habit of showing off her man on the internet, her failure to do so since March 2023 — when she last flaunted him — affirmed the possible confirmation that the duo was no longer an item.

In the Instagram post she shared four months ago, the pair attended a fashion event, sitting side by side. On her part, Cher looked breathtaking, dressed in a blue ensemble, while the music producer wore a black outfit.
