Madonna is in love with her 25-year-old boyfriend, so claims the guy’s father

Madonna and boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams arrive at JFK Airport with the kids

In December, we learned that Madonna had a newish boyfriend. I get the feeling they’ve been happening for months, if by “happening” we mean “he’s one of her backup dancers and he just goes on vacation with Madge and her kids and entertains them all.” That’s basically all it is, in my opinion. This guy’s name is Ahlamalik Williams and he’s 25 years old. She’s 61 years old. And yes, he’s a backup dancer. He seems to get along well with her kids too, which is always nice to see – he already seems to have some kind of bro-bond with David Banda, who is absolutely that tall, handsome, manly-looking teenager in these photos. Apparently, Ahlamalik’s dad told TMZ that his son and Madonna are IN LOVE.

Madonna and her 25-year-old BF aren’t exactly rushing to the altar … but all signs point to them taking things to the next level ’cause his dad tells us SHE dropped the L word!!! So, here’s the deal … the rumors have been swirling for months about Madonna dating Ahlamalik Williams … one of her backup dancers. Williams’ father, Drue, tells TMZ … his son and Madge are 100% definitely an item … and it’s gotten serious.

For starters … Drue says his son’s been dating Madonna for a little over a year now. Drue says they first met back in 2015 when his son auditioned for Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour … and Madonna personally picked Ahlamalik out of the group. Fast-forward to September … Madonna met her boy toy’s parents in NYC after one of her shows. And, just last month … Madonna hosted Ahlamalik’s parents at one of her Ceasar’s Palace shows. And, get this … Drue says Madonna invited them to her suite … where Madonna’s personal chef cooked them all dinner.

Drue says the 61-year-old singer told them she loves their son unconditionally and wants to take care of him. Drue says, “Love has no age.” He added, “My son is livin’ la Vida Loca, and I’m just happy for him.”

The Material Girl and her man’s parents clearly got along … ’cause Drue says Madonna’s invited them to her shows in London and France in early 2020. Drue says they’ve already booked their flights. Bitch … she’s Madonna!!!

“Drue says the 61-year-old singer told them she loves their son unconditionally and wants to take care of him.” I mean, hell, if I was Madonna’s age and rich as hell, I’d want to “take care” of several young hot men too, so go ahead and get yours, sugar mama. If everyone is going into this with their eyes wide open about the transaction – money and power in exchange for youth and beauty – then so be it and have fun. But yeah, don’t wrap it up in “love.” This doesn’t feel like love to me. But what do I know.

    I’m fine with the older and younger thing when it really is all about having fun but when there is money and power involved, it starts to feel wrong. It the genders were the other way around here, it would be really problematic so I’m not sure we should be cheering Madonna on for this.

    • Nikki* says:

      Who’s cheering her on? A 61 year old w/a 25 year old always seems icky to me. Waaay icky. My dad in his 80’s said about his disgusting 35 year old gold digger girlfriend: “She makes me feel so YOUNG!” It’s got to be the height of self delusion to be with someone several decades younger.

    • SM says:

      I totally agree. How “Drue says the 61-year-old singer told them she loves their son unconditionally and wants to take care of him.” is not wrong, icky and a form of sexual predatory behaviour. How about all the rich 60 something year olds who hire a young girl and then postures around to the parents about how he will take care of their baby. This is wrong on so many levels she should be publically called out on it. And she looks like a corpse by this point.

  2. jules says:

    Madonna has always seemed like someone who is incapable of being alone. If she really wants to” take care of him”, its so that he sticks around.

  3. Middle of the road says:


  4. whatWHAT? says:

    her face looks CRAZY PUFFY.

    and he’s giving me Phil Lynott vibes.

  5. Vanessabee says:

    Ok, MaBoomer.

  6. Originaltessa says:

    She had beautiful bone structure and gorgeous big eyes. I always wonder how beautiful she’d be if she had let herself age gracefully…

  7. lucy2 says:

    No. Very unequal power there, and she’s involved him in her children’s lives.

  8. Betsy says:

    She looks horrific.

    I’m disappointed (lower case ‘d’) anew that the woman who wanted to blaze trails and question the status quo is acting so pathetically.

    Yes if genders were reversed I’d be squicked out, too, but 25 isn’t 21 or18 and if he’s going in, eyes open, and knows what he wants to get and what he’s willing to do or not – get yours, guy.

    Madonna is just pathetic and sad.

  9. Myriam says:

    Okay Drue *eyeroll* It’s so tasteless when parents of celebrities, or in this case a celebrity’s boy toy, run to media outlets to comment on their GROWN child’s relationships. Who asked you?

    I remember when Diana Kruger got caught cheating on Joshua Jackson with Norman Reedus, Jackson’s father ran straight to the tabloids to tell everyone that they didn’t see what they saw and their relationship was just fine, and… well…look how that turned out.

  10. Esme says:

    The “love” angle might be a bit much, but a completely transactional relationship sounds worse… Since the boyfriend has a good relationship with her kids, there’s probably some affection/kindness involved, on both sides, and that’s better. It is what it is, money and age wise, but it doesn’t seem completely creepy.

  11. Tai says:

    She is already looking like Peggy Lee who had her skin pulled so tight she could barely open her mouth. I too am disappointed in a woman who positioned herself as empowered and yet shows herself to be desperate to stay young as if youth was her only value.
    And this new guy is the same age as Lourdes. That is icky.

  12. Marianne says:

    Sorry if Im being cyncial…but this doesnt seem like true love to me. She probably “loves” him because it makes her feel young (and she seems so desperate to be a 20 something still) and he probably “loves” her because he gets to spend her millions and gets some of her fame.

  13. spike says:

    she reminds me of the Cat Lady..ummm jocelyn wildestein. both ladies’ beautiful features so distorted by plastic unfantastic

  14. Michael says:

    Madonna loves dating her back up dancers because she wants to have total control of people that she is involved in. The power dynamic is extremely tilted here and it is no different than an old man dating some young woman who has no real power of her own.

  15. ChillyWilly says:

    Ew, ew, ew and EW!

  16. JanetFerber says:

    “Money and power in exchange for youth and beauty” is exactly the formula for so many marriages of older men to younger women and they always do call it love. Heaven forbid men would call their relationships “transactional.” The women really do love them, guys!!!! As far as Madonna, let her do her. It’s not for me or anyone else to say what love has to do with it. Let them define their relationship any way they want.

  17. Minxx says:

    I never thought Madonna was this trailblazing paragon of feminism some people made her to be. I always believed she was first and foremost a narcissist and a control freak. She must be truly terrified of aging to take up with a 25 year old and call it “love”.

  18. tarynfox says:

    If I were her age and had her money, the last thing I’d want is some man-child to take care of.

    • Raina says:

      To her he is not a child. She became very famous at 25 and was emotionally stunted at that age. Everything after was done or handled for her. In her mind she is 25 and a rebel.

    • (TheOG)@jan90067 says:

      His youth is just another thing her money can buy for herself. Does ANYONE think if she was just 61 year old Madonna from New Jersey ANY 25 yr old would have ANYTHING to do with her???

      “Harold and Maude” aside, no. These guys would be making fun of a woman of her age coming after them lustfully. And let’s be honest, if the sexes were reversed, we’d ALL be here calling it gross and an imbalance of power.

  19. Jaded says:

    She’s pathetic. Seriously, it’s like she hasn’t matured emotionally at all. People who can’t embrace the value of getting older and cling desperately to the vestiges of their youth by any means possible must be very empty people inside with an overwhelming need to avoid the inevitable. She fills herself up with young guys who could be her grandsons, and undergoes every kind of cosmetic surgery/fillers/botox to make herself feel relevant. I’d hate to be her. At 67 I’m happier and more confident than I’ve ever been and I’m that way without a 25 year old hottie (a 70 year old hottie actually), dyed hair, plastic surgery, etc. etc. I’m glad I’m not like her.

    • Raina says:

      Jaded, enjoy your 70 year old hottie. Even tho you sound sorta defensive.
      Hate, actual HATE to be her, you say. Meh.
      She’s enjoying her 25 year old hottie. No one’s hurt. Different strokes. I didn’t initially wanna go this route but ageism here is strong. In 20 years I will be her age if I live long enough and ain’t no one telling me who to date. Only thing that rose my brow is the psychology behind her choice which may or may not be due to the fact she had gotten famous around that age.

      • Carol says:

        @Raina I too believe in “different strokes for different folks“ but that age difference is really skeevy IMO. I think its gross when Christie Brinkley”s 60 yr old ex- husband is engaged to a 21 year old, and a 65 yr old Dennis Quaid is engaged to a 26 year old woman. Its just older people trying to remain Young and young people wanting to be taken care of, primarily financially IMO.

  20. Lala11_7 says:

    She’s a rich woman that’s old enough to be his GRANDMOTHER…

    He is a working class young man….

    I can’t with this…them…OR HER!

    • Raina says:

      Yeah but this “young man” will probably consider this to be the best thing that’s ever happened to him and he ain’t a minor. She works with younger dancers and that’s who she’s around all the time. Plus she ain’t a grandmother. Don’t call someone that automatically because they’re over 60. That age isn’t what it used to be and people aren’t popping out kids at 20 anymore.
      Lol what is it about this that has you clutching the pearls. Who cares.
      I cringed way more at his dumb dad giving a statement.

  21. Nightsky says:

    You know it’s true love when you have to buy it.

  22. Lolalola3 says:

    Wow, the sexism on this page is really depressing. So you can’t imagine one adult who is decades older than the other having sex together? Well tough sh*t. Doesn’t mean it isn’t fun. For BOTH of them. Why can’t we be happy for her? Who cares if it is love or lust? They are both adults. No one is being held hostage. I do agree about the money disparity but what is a rich girl to do? It’s not like rich people should only date each other. How F’d up would that be??

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      Yeah, that wouldn’t be fair or fun.
      It seems like in general there are unrealistic expectations about what it means for a woman to be empowered in any way- as if it means having no insecurities or flaws, and being in a state of perpetual bliss. Also, as far as her alterations and stuff go 🙄- why should female self-esteem and ‘feminism’ always have to be built off of being ‘better’ than some other girl based on something she did with her body anyway, even in old age? How is that any less vain and reductive than the procedures themselves?

    • Raina says:

      Yeah I’m noticing the ageism and sexism as well. That’s the gross part here.

  23. Joanna says:

    I don’t see anything wrong w what Madonna is doing? Men do it all the time! Madonna would never be able to be in a relationship with a guy on her wealth/power level. Guys at that level are typically alpha males (aggressive and masculine energy). Madonna is the same, so they would constantly butt heads and wrestle for the control in the relationship. She needs a chill, laid back guy. I think a younger guy is perfect for her. Why are you guys dissing her for it? Aren’t you guys for equality? I say go Madonna!

  24. Skittlesandkittens says:

    She is a creep.

  25. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Where is her son Rocco? I never see him in pictures with her and her other kids. Does he still live with his dad full time??

    • Call_me_al says:

      Right? Also: no pics of the new boyfriend in the same frame as Lourdes. Madonna will probably never let them around each other for fear of them getting together!

  26. Ramona Q. says:

    Come on, she’s an old rock star like Mick Jagger. They all date babies. It’s a different world. Just marvel at it and let it be.

  27. Naddie says:

    Something tells me he’s loving it.

  28. Lauren says:

    I hadn’t realized how much she’s done to her face. And the guy comes across sweet and fun but IMO he’s not good looking.
