London: Queen of Pop Madonna’s latest toy boy has left his mother astonished after he told her who the woman he is dating is, and that she is eight-years older than her.
Frenchwoman Patricia Vidal, 44, revealed that she got a call from her son Brahim Zaibat, 24, a dancer working in New York, telling her that he has a new girlfriend, and that she is older than him.
“You’ve always been mature for your age – it will be good to spend some time with a girl who’s a bit older than you,” a news daily quoted her as telling him.
Zaibat replied: “No. She’s eight years older than you, Mum – and her name is Madonna.”
“My mouth fell open when I realised that my son was Madonna’s new boyfriend. It’s something I’m still trying to come to terms with,” she said.
“Madonna was already a big star when I was a schoolgirl, let alone when Brahim was growing up. The whole situation is very strange indeed – surreal even,” she added.
