I got you babe? More like I got you babe, babe, babe, babe and babe, according to Cher, who reveals her marriage to Sonny Bono was rife with infidelity. 

"Stardom made Sonny a huge womanizer," Cher tells Parade in Sunday's issue of the magazine. "One woman, or even five, was not enough for him. I found all this out afterward. I asked him, 'How did you manage the logistics?' I was trusting and faithful with him," Cher said. "I'm not sure we should've ever been husband and wife."

The marriage left Cher considering suicide. "I thought about jumping off a hotel balcony, then I thought, no, I can just leave him. When I told Sonny, he said, 'If you leave me, America will hate you and you won't have a job.'"

Cher obviously has moved on, marrying Gregg Allman, and dating at different times Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Richie Sambora. The actress/singer also tells Parade about her new boyfriend, Ron Zimmerman, who she met online. "Even though I'm older than him (Zimmerman is 52), I'd never before been with anybody over 30."
