London: Madonna is considering marriage again after her toyboy lover Brahim Zaibat proposed to her.
The 53-year-old singer is “making up her mind” after dancer Zaibat popped the question at a Kabbalah centre in New York three weeks ago.
Twice-married Madonna, who kicks off a new world tour in May, has told 24-year-old Zaibat that she needs more time to think about his proposal.
“Brahim asked Madonna to marry him at the centre a few weeks ago, but Madonna hasn’t given him an answer yet. She doesn’t want to rush into anything,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
“She is very happy with Brahim, although her friends are not sure she is ready for marriage again.
“That said, 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 said.
After the pop queen’s messy divorce from film director Guy Ritchie in 2008 after eight years of marriage, she had said she would rather be run over by a train than get married again
But during a recent appearance on Graham Norton’s BBC chat show, she appeared to have had a change of heart.
“Every girl wants to be swept off her feet by a knight in shining armour.
“Even if we are sophisticated, educated, intelligent, evolved human beings, we like to think in the back of our minds that Mr Right is going to sweep us off our feet and take us into the sunset, and we’re going to live happily ever after,” she said.
Her relationship with Zaibat became serious when he took her to meet his 45-year-old mother Patricia Vidal, a strict Muslim who loves in France.
