Madonna’s boyfriend speaks out

Brahim Zaibat and Madonna

Brahim Zaibat sometimes isn’t sure if people want to see him or his famous girlfriend Madonna.

The international superstar has been dating French dancer Brahim since 2011.

Being in a relationship with someone as high profile as Madonna has occasionally proved a challenge for the 25-year-old.

"It would take me days and days to tell you everything [Madonna] has taught me... And it still goes on. Every day I'm learning a little bit more; even when we are apart,” he is quoted as saying to Gala France. “With her, my personality is asserted. Professionally I evolved very quickly, and intellectually, as I'm curious and she is a real repository of knowledge.

“Little anecdote: she succeeded in making me watch old French movies that I didn’t even know existed."

However, he also added: "Being her boyfriend is a handicap as well as an advantage. It is a huge advantage for all the reasons I just explained to you, but it can be a handicap in my relationships [with others]. Sometimes, it is difficult to know if people want to see me or her..."

Brahim’s dancing skills mean he is taking part in Dancing with the Stars France this year.

Madonna, 55, has been a constant support for the talented hunk.

"She told me to go running for it, but to also get enough rest,” he shared.

Brahim has also shown off his creative side by working on a clothing range.

Madonna has already been spotted in one of his hoodies, a black baggy number featuring an AK47 rifle in white print and the word Defend in capital letters.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
