Believe it or not, Cher might have been Mrs. Elvis Presley, but she turned down a romantic date with the singer decades ago.

The veteran singer stopped by The Jennifer Hudson Show on Wednesday (May 1) and admitted she was too nervous to date someone of his stature. Although she didn't reveal when he asked her out, she did explain that her shyness kept her from dating the King of Rock & Roll.

“It was because I was nervous, and I knew of the people around him, and it wasn’t that they were bad people, it's just that I was kind of nervous of his reputation,” she explains.

“I’m really shy when I’m not working and kind of shy around men,” she adds. “And the reason I go out with young men is because men my age or older — well, now they’re all dead — but before they just never, they were always terrified to approach me and younger men were the only ones that...”

“They’re bold,” Hudson chimed in.

Cher agreed, saying, “Yeah, raised by women like me!"

Cher, 77, is currently dating 38-year-old music executive Alexander Edwards. Presley died of a heart attack on Aug. 16, 1977, in his home at Graceland. He was 42.
