The dad of Madonna’s new 25-year-old boyfriend has defended the 36-year age gap, as Ahlamalik Williams headed on holiday with the 61-year-old Material Girl’s family.
The pair were first spotted together earlier this year but have actually been working together since 2015, when Ahlamalik joined her as a backing dancer.
Since then he’s also starred in her music video for God Control. Although they haven’t confirmed their relationship, Ahlamalik’s dad has claimed the pair have been dating for over a year.
Speaking to TMZ, the dancer’s dad Drue Williams said: ‘Love has no age.
‘My son is livin’ la Vida Loca, and I’m just happy for him.’
Drue claimed he’s even met the singer, who ‘personally cooked’ for his family after inviting them all back to her suite following one of her shows.
Oh, and she’s ‘already invited the family to her early 2020 shows in London and France’. That’s generous!
It comes after Madonna took her new maybe-boyfriend on holiday with her and the kids, as she shared images of her time swimming in crystal clear oceans surrounded by white sandy beaches.
She was videoed treading water surrounded by Ahlamalik, son David, 14, and daughters Mercy, 13, Estere and Stelle, both seven. The Isla Bonita singer captioned the video: ‘Family Water Therapy!…………… #fun #healing.’
She posted endless clips on her Instagram story, and for some reason wrote ‘#fun #healing’ on every single one of them.
Earlier this month Madonna was seen relaxing at her hotel ahead of playing Miami in her Madame X World Tour when she was joined by Ahlamalik, who was pictured giving the singer a massage.
He’s not the first younger man we’ve seen the Like A Virgin singer go for. She’s also been connected with Brahim Zalibat, then 23, Timor Steffens, then 26, and model Kevin Sampaio, then 31.
Hey, more power to her, right?
The star deserves some good times, after she was forced to cancel a series of shows due to ‘overwhelming pain’.
Earlier this month the Hung Up star cancelled three shows in Boston, America, and took to Instagram to explain ‘the pain I’m in right now is overwhelming and I must rest and follow doctors orders so I can come back stronger and better’.

‘Please forgive this unexpected turn of events,’ she wrote on Instagram.
‘Doing my show every night brings me so much joy and to cancel is a kind of punishment for me, but the pain I’m in right now is overwhelming and I must rest and follow doctor’s orders so I can come back stronger and better and continue the Madame X journey with all of you.’
