French break dancer Brahim Zaibat has opened up about his relationship with pop star Madonna. The 24-year-old Brahim said his affair with 52-year-old Madonna has made him suspicious of old friends, and caused him to change his mobile number. The couple were first spotted in public together back in October.
Here are some details from the interview with France’s Grazia magazine:
How the affair began: “It all started on September 22nd at the launch of Madonna’s new ready-to-wear clothing range. My mate Norman, who danced for her and who became her personal trainer, asked me to dance at the evening. I performed a solo to Material Girl. Then I met Madonna on the sidelines, and she just thanked me for my show. It wasn’t like meeting a monster! She’s just a woman like all the others. She’s an extraordinary artist and world famous, of course, but a woman above all.”
“You know she wasn’t the first well known female singer I’d met. I was delighted to meet her but not stressed out.” Brahim said his first words to Madonna were “Hi, how are you?,” adding cheekily: “I’m not saying things have gone very fast since then, but things have happened in order.”
Was he a fan of Madonna as a child: “It wasn’t the kind of sound I had on my I-pod but I knew her tracks. I’ve since pretty much listened to all she’s done. She’s put lots of breakdance and hip hop in her last tracks and she’s passionate about dance. Her dream as a child was to become a dancer. That’s another thing we have in common.”
Why they have chosen to go public with their romance: “It wasn’t her deliberate decision and it wasn’t mine. We were in a club and we were seen dancing together. It was because it was Madonna that the affair took on massive proportions. Nothing was calculated by us. We had a nice night together without thinking that there might be paparazzi there.”
