Amber made the relationship Instagram official in October 2018, but revealed that she actually met the record executive about three years prior. “I wish we could have been together all the time… from the day I met you in 2015 😫,” she wrote in an Instagram comment. “It just wasn’t the right time for us, but now you’re my twin!” Yes, Alexander bears an uncanny resemblance to Amber, thanks to their matching haircuts!

It’s like my best friend, the mother of my son. I also love my stepson, but I like women,” he said at the time.
He went on to say that while he was sure he could change, he didn’t want to change his lifestyle. “I know I can stop [cheating]. I can give her a good, solid six months and just really, like, deprive myself of my true nature as long as I can take it, but I don’t want to live like that,” he said.
Although that may no longer be true, Amber considered Alexander to be her real best friend long before the cheating accusations surfaced. “In the past, I used the words ‘best friend’ very loosely when talking about my ex, but I can honestly say that I feel that this man really is my BEST FRIEND! We talk for hours, he makes me a better person, he listens to me and understands me. He also came into my life at a time where I had had enough of the narcissistic, cheating and abuse I had endured over the years from my previous relationships,” Amber explained in an Instagram post on January 27, 2019.

Before taking his position at Def Jam, Alexander worked at Tyga’s label, Last King Records. When Alexander was spotted holding hands with Cher, the pair were joined by Tyga, who also visited the “Believe” singer’s Malibu mansion with Alexander.
