62 year-old Cher’s 38 year-old boyfriend, a biker who climbed Everest

The National Enquirer has a new cover story this week which reads “Cher’s Secret Wedding!” It’s technically accurate according to the information they claim to have, but is misleading because Cher is just said to be planning a wedding with this biker dude who happens to be 24 years younger than her, and hasn’t actually married him yet. So a more accurate title would be “Cher Plans Secret Wedding!” But that’s ok, because the details are juicy enough to make up for the inaccurate title.

Cher met 38 year-old Tim Medvetz through her friend Richard Stark, the designer of Chrome Hearts Jewelery. Medvetz is a 6’5″ tough biker dude with long black hair and one of those half goatee mustache combos. He customizes high end motorcycles and was injured so badly in a motorcycle accident in 2001 that he had to have his back fused together and metal plates put in his skull. The guy was in a wheelchair for 6 months, but he decided to set a goal for himself to climb Mount Everest, and he made it on his second try in 2007. He’s said to drink a lot of whiskey and love fried chicken, but he lifts weight to work it off. Cher’s boyfriend’s story is pretty interesting, and he’s a determined guy but that doesn’t make him marriage material.

Medvetz and Cher have been spotted out together and have traveled together. The Enquirer’s information that they’re planning to get married seems sketchy, though, and could be based on a quote Cher gave that “I could see myself getting married again.” Cher has been married twice and has two children.

The May-December couple spent a night nuzzling at the Foxtail lounge in L.A. on June 13, accompanied by Cher’s close pal, actor Dean Winters, along with Richard Stark and wife Laurie, according to the source.

“Tim was so protective of Cher that everyone assumed he was her bodyguard.”

Their love burst spectacularly in the open when they recently traveled with the Starks to Nashville to see country music legend Merle Haggard.

Cher rented a private jet for the flight and took Tim and her posse to The Bluebird Cafe on June 24.

Next, it was on to Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a famous watering hole.

The couple spent the night together in a beautiful suite at The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, according to a local insider.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, July 21, 2008]

As for Cher and Medvetz’s plans to marry, the Enquirer says they plan to marry “in a quickie Las Vegas ceremony by the end of the year,” and that Cher is asking him to sign a prenup first to protect her assets. There’s not much detail about either statement and the article focuses more on Medvetz’s background and their courtship.

Cher dated a 22 year-old guy who worked at a bagel shop, Rob Camilletti, for several years in the 80s starting when she was 40. I thought she was married to that guy, but after consulting Wikipedia I see they were just living together. At least the guys are getting older with her. I don’t see her marrying this one, but we’ll have to see.

    She looks amazing, not too overdone and she has admitted to lots of procedures. She’s always done her own thing so I like that about her.

  2. Ha! Demi isn’t the only one who likes to pick the young tea buds!

    I say Go Cher!

  3. geronimo says:

    Excuse me? Why is he not marriage material? Anyone that goes through what he’s been through and comes out on top of Everest sounds like a damn fine bet to me, and perfect for her. Ultimate rock chick, you go, Cher!

    And yes, I do like me a bit of tattooed biker dude. 8)

  4. Celebitchy says:

    geronimo I didn’t say he wasn’t marriage material, I just said that doesn’t make him marriage material, like being so self-determined isn’t a real attribute you bring to a marriage. Maybe I’m wrong but I’ve dated guys like that and they’re kind of into whatever they’re into and not that focused on the relationship/family.

  5. Bodhi says:

    I like tattooed bikers too 8)

    He sounds like a pretty cool guy & I hope they are happy together.

    I understand what you’re getting at CB. Sometimes those guys decide to make make the relationship/ family number one. I’m not saying that Cher will magicly change him, but he might do it on his own. Maybe.

  6. M says:

    Hmmmmm he looks like Ben Stiller in costume.

  7. MissKitteh says:

    Tim is a real character! He was a big part of Discovery Channel’s Everest: Beyond the Limit series. You can watch the entire climb online, because they had “Sherpa cams” — cameras mounted on the Sherpa guides heads. He is a BIG guy, and could have died up there, because they had a hard time talking him into turning back when it was clear he wouldn’t make it to the summit.

  8. geronimo says:

    Oops. Sorry CB. Wasn’t being snarky Was it the ‘excuse me’ wot done it?

    But I disagree, it shows enormous character and strength and resilience – all things that come in handy in a relationship. And Cher’s hardly looking for a stay-at-home staid guy. She’s up for adventure and this guy sounds like he can provide it.

  9. Ron says:

    In the words of the great Sheryl Crow, “If it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad” Good for her. Ride him hard!

  10. Trillion says:

    Go Cougars!

  11. Syko says:

    I don’t know why she’d bother to marry him, but if she wants to try him on for size and play with him for however long, I don’t see a thing wrong with it. I was dating a 24 year old at 51, and we really had a great time, even outside the bedroom. Age is a number.

  12. daisy424 says:

    I know she has had work done, but damn, she really looks good for her age.

  13. daisy424 says:

    😀 Syko!!

  14. Syd says:

    He’s a loudmouth, ass-clown. He was on discovery channel climbing Everest and was so conceited and annoying that he nearly got booted by his teammates. So I guess he’s perfect for her.

    • Rider Waite says:

      Tim was a salesman at Bartel’s H-D, he was not a builder, what the heck do you build on a factory H-D anyway. I remember him after the accident he was walking around with a cane. Did he almost lose his foot? Who really know, but I’d have to see the entire xray to believe he had to have plates put in his head. Tim is so full of crap he stinks. He was one of those arrogant guys who ate every one’s lunch in the Bartel’s fridge and bragged about all the things he wanted to be but was obviously not. Cher has really sunk low if she’s even thinking of marrying this guy. And by the way he was never a patch holder. He used to brag he was a prospect but ?? And another thing I doubt his Heroe’s Project is really all about the troops. And I hope to God he doesn’t decide to learn to climb on Mt. E because taking men who are not WELL prepared up that mountain just to stroke his ego is not something I would put past him but it would be a severe mistake.

  15. geronimo says:

    You go, Syko! 😀

  16. jinx says:

    Cher will slap him down if he needs it, you have fun Cher, and most men 38 would love to be with her, she’s awesome.

  17. Cassie says:

    @ Blackalicious: I second that! Girlfriend must’ve gone and bought herself the fountain of youth or something. She needs to share all of her beauty secrets like, yesterday.

  18. anon69 says:

    I thought that was that douchebag from that show!!

  19. vdantev says:

    Cougars- *twitch* must…not….rant….

  20. Shane says:

    Cher is too cool.

    She needs a younger man because her age may chronologically be 62, but she looks 40.

  21. ozzmoe says:

    If Cher is happy with this relationship, the let it happen.

  22. NHchicky says:

    I think the age difference is disgusting.. But I’m ok with being out on my limb. lol The thought of dating someone as old as if not older than my parents makes me want to vomit.

  23. Diva says:

    If someone were grossed out by someone marrying someone of a different race they’d be racist…

    so does that mean that if someone is disgusted by someone marrying someone of a different age they’re ageist?

    I think these two make a pretty appropriate couple! Go Cher!

  24. Leni says:

    He is 38 which is hardly a child. Can you really see Cher with an old fart-whatever his age? If they are involved, then he is lucky to be sharing her light.

  25. Kerri says:

    She could do better. He sounds like a looser with a capital “L”…she needs to go for a young musician, not a broken biker dude.

  26. Jaundice Machine says:

    Aw, I really liked the guy on “Everest” (say it with me now, “Ever-ever-ever-REST-rest-rest).
    Even though he was too big and too bull-headed to summit the peak (he really had no business trying to bag Everest, but I find it speaks more to the commericalization of mountain climbing than his character), I found him to be an incredibly charming and endearing person. Good for him, and good for Cher!

  27. Maritza says:

    I agree she should just live with the guy for a couple of years first, if it works out then she should marry him. Physically they look perfect for each other, no way does she look older then him.

  28. Maturity says:

    Some of you women are so immature, time to GROW UP!

  29. daisyfly says:

    He’s 38. You’d think with all this disgust, he was 18. If the tables were turned, and Cher were 38, people would view it in a different light.

    Both are adults way past the stage of youthful indiscretion. Let’em be..

  30. RC says:

    whatever, so he’s younger. my real problem is that he’s a jackass. He endangered the lives of like 4 or 5 other people on everest. yeah, sure, he’s determined (he made his second summit attempt with a broken hand and almost fell off of the mountain because he couldn’t descend safely), but while he was cool with the sherpas, he was also an inconsiderate shlub who only cared about his own glory.
    BTW, I highly recommend the show he was on, “Everest: Beyond the Limit.”

  31. paris herpes says:

    He probably has GREAT stories to tell. I like him!

  32. kate says:

    her lips look like vienna sausages.

  33. gay traveler says:

    The girl is rocking! Respect!

  34. G. says:

    I love Cher. She’s so fun and wild.

  35. Tania says:

    Cher looks awesome! And her man is SEXY! I don’t think she’ll marry him, she’s just having fun. He seems to be a terrific guy and fun for her. He’s definitely a determined person after all he’s been through, to climb Mt. Everest. That’s awesome! You go Cher! I LOVE HER!

  36. drm says:

    Cher looks amazing…if you didn’t know her age you would NEVER EVER put her at 62, and she doesn’t looked “pulled”

    Go Cher!

  37. Nan says:

    I would care…but I don’t. I am interested in professors at the university and other educated people. Cher has still not grown up, she never will. She will go to her grave like that. Would love to hear that she went back to school online, under cover and got her degree. She doesn’t realize the investment. You can lose everything material in a streak of bad luck but you cannot ever lose your degree or your education from reading. A gift forever. Can never be taken away.

  38. Me says:

    Heey, even her hands dont look old, this b*tch needs to tell me her secret!!! I am willing to pay!!!

  39. Traci says:

    Just curious as to why we care? Well, I don’t anyway.

  40. Crazza says:

    ok?????????? ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓

  41. Crazza says:

    If she gets pregnant and when the child is 13 and he/she tells the teacher my mom is 75 and my dad is 41. How embarrassing would of that been to him/her. They don’t even think about that???

    Losers 🙄

  42. karra says:

    go cher!!!!! if its true love i say go for it 8)

  43. dml says:

    No! No! No! Not THAT Idiot from the Discovery Everest series!? Please tell me you are joking! PLEASE!!!!!!

  44. sdr says:

    I am a 62 year old male with a 38 year old girlfriend. We have been together four years and growing more in love with each passing day.

    I say, “HOORAY! for Cher.” ~ You GO GIRL!

    …oh yeah! He’s a very lucky guy!

  45. anele says:

    cher is coool 😉

  46. lauraine says:

    i like cher but he’s 2 yrs younger than chaz and 5 yrs older than elijah. (both her kids). it’s one thing if she wants to get married, but not to him. he’s WAY to young for her.she can find someone better. she deserves someone better. i don’t know how or why her kids are so totally fine with this, but i hope they’re not. please cher find someone else NOW!! just go out with him, don’t marry him.Please!!!

  47. A. STORM says:

    Love Tim. He oozes sexuality. He’s cocky and he backs it up! You’ve got to respect a man who’s not afraid to live his life on his own terms. Sure Cher looks great, wouldn’t we all if we were that rich. It’s not the age difference that will defeat them, it’s the cultural difference. They will always look at the same thing and see it differently. They’re paths have crossed, but they’re destiny lies elsewhere, and deep down I suspect they both know it. Let’s hope that they left each others soul intact when they moved on.

  48. crazydaisy says:

    the queen of great work. love her.

  49. Nashvegas says:

    I did security for Cher at Tootsie’s that night! What a night it was! Cher was a sweetheart!

  50. Mikki says:

    OMG!!! “If Cher gets pregnant!!!” I think this site must have some real youngsters. someone needs to learn the facts of life. Also, Cher did great for this long without a degree. I work at a huge law firm. Do you know what degrees do to people?!!?? LOL I survived the ’60s. Sonny and Cher were the first hippies. I say, You Go Girl!! I think she could do better, but it’s her choice. I can’t picture Cher w/ some old guy. She is toooooooo cool!Q
