Travis Scott and Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards fight in Cannes

Travis Scott and Cher’s boyfriend Alexander ‘AE’ Edwardswas involved in a heated altercation in the glamorous French city of cannes On Thursday, ET found out.

Video Captured from a viewer’s Instagram Stories shows a chaotic scene in which some men are seen punching each other while drinks can be seen flying as people try to get out of the way.

Security quickly intervened to stop the fight and the DJ quickly stopped the music, repeatedly shouting “Stop!” over the microphone in an attempt to restore order.

An eyewitness tells ET that what started as an evening of celebration quickly descended into chaos.

“Travis Scott and Tyga attended Richie Akiva’s amfAR afterparty as Richie’s guests. At one point in the night, both artists were on stage, behind the DJ booth, when Richie announced them both on stage alongside to Alexander Edwards and others. Right after that announcement, Travis immediately grabbed the microphone out of Richie’s hand and said, “No, we’re not doing this.” Alexander said, ‘Let him show some love,'” the witness says.

According to the witness, Scott left the stage momentarily and returned to producer Southside, who confronted Edwards. The situation quickly escalated and led to a physical altercation. As Edwards attempted to defuse the confrontation, Southside shoved him, causing Edwards to back away. In Southside’s defense, Scott attempted to push Edwards off the stage. Edwards, keeping his balance, retaliated by dragging Scott across the stage and finally tossing him. The fight continued with Edwards jumping on top of Scott, resulting in a fight captured on video.

Throughout the incident, Tyga remained behind the DJ booth, refraining from getting involved in the altercation. The witness noted that Tyga’s assistant eventually joined the fight, along with Edwards. Security intervened to separate the combatants, prompting Scott and Southside to rush outside to their cars. Despite the disturbance, Tyga, Edwards and their friends continued to enjoy the party into the early hours of the morning, with no serious injuries reported.

Edwards and Tyga have been close for years. Many fans on social media suggest that the altercation could be related to Kylie Jenner, who both Scott and Tyga have dated. Jenner had an on-again, off-again romance with Tyga from 2015 to 2017, which began when she was still a teenager. Shortly after their breakup, Jenner began dating Scott, leading to a tumultuous five-year relationship that included extended separations.

Jenner and Scott share two children: a six-year-old daughter named Stormi and a two-year-old son named Aire.

ET has reached out to Travis Scott, Tyga, Southside and Alexander Edwards for comment.

Cher took the stage at Cannes amfAR, the charity gala dedicated to raising funds for HIV and AIDS research. Dressed in a dazzling purple sequin pantsuit, she wowed the audience. “I thought they’d be drunk, but obviously they’re not,” Cher joked before delivering an acoustic performance of “Walking in Memphis,” the Marc Cohn ballad she covered on her 1995 album. It’s a man’s world.
