For weeks there have been whisperings that Madonna has split up with Jesus Luz and taken up with a new young lover.
And after the first pictures of them together emerged this week, the rumours looked to be true.

Backing dancer Brahim Zaibat appeared overwhelmed by the scrum of journalist and photographers as he left a London night club with the singer.
He ducked his head and covered his face with a scarf in an attempt to hide.
It's not known how old Brahim is. He and Madonna, 52, are said to have been seeing each other for the past few months.
She began dating him after apparently splitting with Jesus – last seen at the Material Girl's 52nd birthday party in August.
Like her 24-year-old ex, Brahim has model good looks.
A gifted dancer, the agency which manages him describes him as an award-winning competitor whose "signature moves are recognised instantly by dancers everywhere and his trademark flexible style and swagger is impossible to imitate."
He has shown off his moves with a selection of other dancers in a promotional video posted on youtube (below).
Brahim has been spotted with Madonna on a string of dates in New York, including a trip to the theatre and an outing to a night club, where they were spotted kissing and cuddling.
The news of the new relationship comes after untrue reports Madonna was dating another of her backing dancers with the same first name, Brahim Rachiki.
