Madonna dumped by boyfriend, say reports

Madonna has reportedly split from boyfriend Jesus Luz.

The 51-year-old star is said to have been dumped by the 23-year-old Brazilian model – who she has been dating for more than a year – because their massive age gap left them with little in common.

A source told the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper: "The problem is as simple as it is obvious - it's the age difference. How long could it last? How it even lasted a year seems a miracle to a lot of people.

"They are in such different places in their lives. They both benefited, but it's pretty much over now."

The split was said to be amicable, with the ‘4 Minutes’ singer – who raises four children, 13-year-old Lourdes, Rocco, nine, Mercy, five, and four-year-old David – agreeing it was time to call an end to their 13-month relationship.

The source added: “Madonna told me: ‘We've just run out of things to talk about. We have Kabbalah, but that's about it. It’s really pushing it for us to have common ground these days’.”

Madonna's representative had no comment to make last night.

The news comes just days after Jesus was pictured frolicking with three bikini-clad young women in Brazil.
