Hung Up singer Madonna says reports she planned a Kabbalah commitment ceremony with her current companion, model Jesus Luz, are incorrect.
"This is completely and totally not true," said a spokesman at the weekend. The denial counters claims in the Brazilian media that the model's father Luiz Heitor Pinto da Luz had given his approval to a wedding ceremony.
The couple's relationship does seem to be deepening, however, as 22-year-old Jesus joined the queen of pop and her children for a meeting at a Kabbalah centre.
Everyone, incuding Madonna and her son David, arrived wearing white, a common practice for followers of the religion who believe the colour attracts positive energy.
Jesus' inclusion in the family outing does bear out his father's recent comments about the young model's affection for Madonna's youngsters. "He has an excellent relationship with the children. He plays football with them,' said Luiz.
