Madonna has moved on from ex-husband Guy Ritchie, Yankee slugger boy-toy Alex Rodriguez to a new fella – Jesus.
The pop icon, who has played with religious imagery throughout her career, was snapped in New York yesterday on a date with a 22 year-old Brazilian model named — you guessed it — Jesus Luz.
And it looks like the romance between the May-December pair is heating up.The lunch date – in Manhattan’s Marcelleria Italian steakhouse – follows reports that Luz flew to London to ring in his 22nd birthday with Madonna, 50.

Madonna reportedly met Luz in December at a photo shoot for W magazine, where the two posed in together in a raunchy pictorial.
The high profile romance has done wonders for Luz’s career, and according to his former agent, Sergio Mattos, he is now requesting well over $100,000 for jobs that used to earn him just $225.
Mattos lamented to Brazilian Web site Glamurama.com.br that Luz stopped answering his calls after he linked up with Madge, but wished the young Latin lad the best regardless.
“Now I have a new Jesus [Spanish model Jesus Perez],” Mattos said. “This is a much better Jesus, and he’s not a fan of Madonna’s.”
Luz is the second younger man to be linked to cougar-extraordinaire Madonna since she split from husband Guy Ritchie last fall. Her relationship with Alex Rodriguez is widely thought to have led to the demise of his marriage to Cynthia Rodriguez last summer.
