Madonna splits with boyfriend of a year

Madonna has parted ways with her boyfriend of a year, Josh Popper.

The 65-year-old superstar had been dating Josh, 30 for a year. The pair met through Madonna’s son David Banda, 18, who was taking boxing lessons from Josh at Bredwinners gym in New York City.

Madonna has been on the road with her Celebration Tour since last October, and the couple’s split has been blamed on her busy schedule.

“Madonna has barely seen Josh for months because her schedule was so hectic. Things just fizzled out,” a source told The Sun.

“There is really no bad blood – they’re still fond of each other. At the moment their relationship doesn’t feel feasible and they’ve cooled things off, but they are staying friends.”

Josh was by Madonna’s side when she was hospitalized with a serious bacterial infection last year and spent several days in ICU.

He joined her on several international trips, and in December appeared on stage with her when she performed in Brooklyn. The pair shared a kiss onstage in front of 14,000 people.

Madonna was previously married to Sean Penn, and then Guy Ritchie. She has two biological children, Lourdes, 27, and Rocco, 23, and four adopted children, David, 18, Mercy, 18, and twins Stella and Esther, 11.
