Madonna Splits From Boyfriend Brahim Zaibat
Madonna, Bahim Zaibat Split
Madonna, 55, began dating Zaibat, 25, in 2010 after meeting at the launching event for Madonna’s daughter Lourdes' clothing line, Material Girl, where he performed. Following their introduction, Madonna hired Zaibat on as a backup dancer on her MDNA world tour and welcomed him into her personal life as a boyfriend.
While Madonna has confirmed the split, a reason for the breakup wasn’t given. Some reports suggest that Zaibat no longer wanted to be known as just Madonna’s boyfriend. Furthermore, there’ve been rumors that suggest Zaibat has gotten close to his Dancing with the Stars (France) partner Katrina Patchett.
“He is far more assertive than before. Brahim is no longer Madonna’s little boy,” a source told the Daily Mail. “He wants to be known for who he is. That’s the reason he is doing so much in the media. He has big plans, and wants to move on from the Mr. Madonna tag.”
In the past, Zaibat has admitted that being Madonna’s boyfriend had both it’s benefits and it’s drawbacks. Calling the status of Madonna’s significant other “a handicap” he said, “It is hard to know if people want to see me or her.” He added, “It would take me days and days to tell you what she’s taught me. I’m still learning a little bit more every day, and even at distance when we’re separated.
Throughout her career, Madonna has had a number of high profile relationships. She married Sean Penn in the mid 80s, when she also reportedly had romances with John F. Kennedy Jr. and Warren Beatty. Antonio Banderas, Lenny Kravitz, Vanilla Ice and Willem Dafoe were all linked to the pop star in he 90s. In 1994, Madonna began a long-term relationship with her personal trainer Carlos Leon, with whom she had Lourdes. Guy Richie was her husband from 2000 to 2008. Her last romance was with model Jesus Luz.
