Amidst the custody battle for her son Rocco, 15, Madonna has found love again. Only this time, she is dating a man who is 30 years her junior, reports The Inquisitr.
Friends close to the 57-year-old singer claim that she has been spending time with the 25-year-old model, Aboubakar Soumahoro, reports The Mirror. According to the report, Madonna and Aboubakar were introduced to each other by a common friend and the pair met each at a party in November last year.
Madonna apparently is smitten by her new toy boy. The 25-year-old model, who hails from Ivory Coast, formerly worked at Harrods and goes by the name of “Brooklin.”
“They were at a party together back in November when they got chatting, and hit it off straight away,” the source said.
“Over the next few weeks, they got together a couple more times and she invited him over to her place, where they sat up all night talking. The next thing we heard, he had quit his job and had gone out to meet her on tour. It’s obviously a very close friendship.”
According to the Daily Mail report, the singer’s new boyfriend also attended the South American leg of her Rebel Heart Tour.
Madonna has had a history of dating younger men. Back in 2010, she dated 29-year-old backup dancer, Brahim Zaibat. They dated for around three years before calling it quits in late 2013.
Speaking about Zaibat to Nightline, Madonna then said that she is happy with him.
“I didn’t choose to, you know, I didn’t, like, write down on a piece of paper I’m now going to have a relationship with a younger man,” she said.
“That’s just what happened. You see, that’s the romantic in me. I just met someone that I cared for, and this happened to be his age. I don’t want to live my life on my own. I love being a mother. My children fill me up in many ways, and inspire me in many ways, but I need a partner in my life and I think most people feel that way.”
However, post their break up, Madonna mocked him in her Unapologetic Bitch album. After Zaibat, she dated 28-year-old Timor Steffens.
