Earlier this week, the world was informed that Madonna may potentially be dating 29 year-old boxing coach Josh Popper. Today, it has been revealed that the former queen of pop music is not dating Popper. Their recent photographs together were simply to help promote his gym.
As per Page Six, Madonna’s new “romance” seems more like a show-mance. Even for the Material Girl it seemed like fast work: On Wednesday, it was revealed the singer had split up with model boyfriend Andrew Darnell, and that she was then paired alongside boxing coach, Popper. However, not all is as it seems…
Friends said that the photographs of Madonna, 64, and Popper, 29, which both of them posted on Instagram were to help him with publicity. Popper is coaching the singer’s son David, 17, to take part in a charity boxing match and asked her to help publicize his Bredwinners gym in Manhattan.
“He’s a good-looking guy, but Madonna isn’t looking for love at the moment,” one source said. “Josh has been training her son and she’s impressed. She said she would help him promote the gym.
“He’s up-and-coming and has just appeared in a reality show on Bravo, so he is eager to get attention with Madonna,” the source added of Popper, who made a cameo in Monday’s episode of “Summer House.”
