Madonna’s three-year relationship with her former backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams, who was 35 years her junior, has officially ended. While a source close to the couple said the split was amicable, the singer made some recent social media posts that seemed to hint at some degree of tension behind the scenes.

Madonna and Williams first met in 2015 when he danced with her “Rebel Heart’ tour, and they became official in 2019. She even collaborated with him as he began releasing music of his own under the moniker Ahlamalik.

A source told The Sun that their relationship became hard to maintain after spending “months together on tour and in lockdown.” They also added, “With them both working on other things, it was hard to keep their romance alight.” There didn’t seem to be any hostility with the split according to the source, but the “Like A Virgin” singer has since gone to Instagram to mention the breakup tangentially.

She posted several cryptic messages on her Instagram story that are thought to be in reference to Williams. Two photos show a chain saying “F––k you,” along with accompanying text “I mean it…” and another with text reading “I really. do.” Another Story between the two photos read “Karma said: When somebody in your life is not right for you… god will continuously use them to hurt you until you become strong enough to let them go.”

The singer has already been spotted on several dates with a new man, but there isn’t much info on him at the moment.
