Madonna reportedly sent a "burly chaperone" along when her teenage daughter went out with her boyfriend last weekend.
It was recently claimed that the singer is finding it difficult to accept that her 16-year-old daughter Lourdes is growing up and is unhappy about her having a boyfriend.
Lourdes is currently dating Homeland actor Timothée Chalamet and it seems Madonna has finally allowed the teenager to spend time with him without parental supervision. However, the star wanted to make sure the date went smoothly, so sent along one of her bodyguards.
"The Material Girl sent a burly chaperone to keep a very close eye on the young couple," reports New York Post.
Lourdes and Timothée, who attend the same New York performing arts school, were spotted at Brother Jimmy's BBQ restaurant on Saturday night.
As the couple enjoyed each other's company at a corner table, the minder sat at another table and "never took his eyes off of them".
“They were leaning close together to talk before food came. He was making her laugh a lot,” a source revealed.
During the evening, 17-year-old Timothée was seen reaching for Lourdes' hand as they flirted.
The teenagers split the $51 bill, before the bodyguard accompanied them both into a chauffeured car.
Madonna recently spoke out about Lourdes - whose father is personal trainer Carlos Leon - entering the dating scene.
"She has a very nice boyfriend," she told Extra with a smile.
Madonna, 54, is renowned for being a hard-line mother. Despite her celebrity status she doesn't spoil her four kids, making them clean up after themselves and monitoring their homework and wardrobe choices.
It was recently reported the star is just as determined to make sure her daughter's relationship doesn't go too fast.
"All Madonna cares about is her daughter and she is fiercely protective. There are strictly no sleepovers allowed, and she always tries to keep tabs on them, which sometimes drives them both a bit mad," a source said.
