Madonna is allegedly in love again and doesn’t care that people think she shouldn’t be dating men much younger than her. The Mirror has the news.
“Friends claim the Material Girl hitmaker has been spending time with 25-year-old model Aboubakar Soumahoro, a former Harrods worker. Pals say they were introduced by a mutual friend at a showbiz bash last November. Weeks later he visited the 57-year-old singer at her London home.”
The Daily Mirror adds that Madonna’s new boyfriend stood by her side during the South American leg of her Rebel Heart Tour. The only problem with that was that there was no South American leg. Still, Soumahoro has been pictured with Madonna for the past couple of months and fans have even suspected they are a couple.
One of the commenters after the article is happy for Madonna.
“Great story and very happy for Madonna because she needs some holidays after her highly successful 7 months tour!” claims DidierNiclaes.
However, one commenter is very suspicious.
“You seem to have some facts wrong in this article. The Rebel Heart tour did not go to South America. It went only to Mexico and Puerto Rico, which are part of North America, not South America. So how are we supposed to believe the rest of the article?” asks CourtneyNewman.
Even though the Rebel Heart Tour didn’t go to South America, it did hit North America, Europe, parts of Asia, and Australia. According to the Daily Mail, Madonna’s recent tour sold enough tickets to make her the world’s top touring act.
“In 2009 she was crowned the Highest-Grossing Solo Touring Artist, only to be knocked off her throne by Bruce Springsteen three-years later. However Madonna has taken back the title once more, thanks to the success of her recent Rebel Heart Tour. The 57-year-old pop diva has sold a whopping $1.73 billion AUD worth of tickets throughout her career, putting her at the top of the Billboard Boxscore once more.”
Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour had received fantastic reviews, but the last week or so caused a lot of controversy. First, there were stories of Madonna arriving very late to her shows. Then, there were reports of empty seats, which Madonna refuted on Instagram.
There were reports of Madonna being drunk, which she also refuted on Instagram.
To make things more complicated, Madonna invited a fan on stage, perhaps not knowing she was 17 years old, even though the age of consent in Australia is actually 16. That became an issue since Madonna accidentally pulled her top down. Madonna apologized and tried to make a joke about it. There was a huge backlash on Twitter. However, according to the Los Angeles Times, the alleged “victim,” Josephine Georgiou, said the wardrobe malfunction was the best moment of her life.
“Despite reports and allegations that the singer had crossed a line and humiliated the minor in front of an audience that eventually grew to include the whole Internet, once the footage hit social media, the girl was unfazed.”
The newspaper than quoted Ms. Georgiou.
“Only I get to decide if I’m humiliated or not — why would people assume I am humiliated by my own breast, nipple or body? I didn’t realize my boob was such a big deal — it was nothing to me,” the young woman said.
Nobody knows what’s next for Madonna, but many suspect she will work at getting her family back together after her recent custody battle issues.
