Madonna considering marriage proposal from 24-year-old boyfriend, report says
NEW YORK – Madonna is mulling a marriage proposal from her 24-year-old boyfriend after he popped the question earlier this year, the Daily Mail reported Monday.
Brahim Zaibat, a French dancer, proposed to the 53-year-old pop star three weeks ago at the Kabbalah Center in New York, according to the British newspaper.
The couple has dated for two years despite their 29 year age difference. Zaibat is also a Muslim while Madonna follows the Jewish mystical sect of Kabbalah.
But sources say the Queen of Pop, who is twice divorced, is hesitant to make another trip down the aisle.
"She doesn't want to rush into anything. She is very happy with Brahim, although her friends are not sure she is ready for marriage again," a source told the newspaper.
"Madonna has a real fear of being on her own. It's a major issue for her, and she loves having a man in her life who is young and makes her feel young," the source added.
Madonna was previously married to Sean Penn from 1985 to 1989 and English director Guy Ritchie from 2000 to 2008.
