Is she dating Josh Popper?
Madonna appears to have made her relationship with Josh Popper ‘official’ on Instagram after posting a picture of the pair kissing on her Stories page.
The 64-year-old was rumored to be dating the 29-year-old boxer last month, shortly after her five-month romance with 23-year-old model Andrew Darnell ended.
The new picture of Madonna and her beau was taken at a Purim party – on the occasion of the Jewish holiday – the singer is dressed in all black with a lace face covering.

Popper was also dressed in all black, with a balaclava covering his face, but his eyes and nose were visible underneath.
This is not the first time that the couple has appeared in a photo together. In February, Popper posted a picture of himself with his arm around the singer, and another with Madonna standing behind him, clutching his bicep.
“Another W for the books!!” Popper captioned the image. “I want to thank my coaches, my team and my Bredwinners family for pushing me to be my best in and out of the ring. I have good people by my side.” (Bredwinners is the name of his boxing studio.)

Fans were quick to comment on the picture, with one person @stiffy23 writing: “No frigging way!!!! My QUEEN @madonna Popper!!!!”
According to Popper’s Instagram page, he is a New York-based boxing coach, former NFL athlete and founder of Bredwinners boxing studio.
The new relationship comes a month after the pop superstar accused critics at the Grammys of “sexism and misogyny” after comments were made about her appearance.

“Once again I’m caught up in the reflection of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in,” she wrote on Instagram.
“A world that refuses to celebrate women over 45 and feels it must punish her for remaining strong-willed, hardworking and adventurous.”
Madonna was previously in a three-year relationship with 28-year-old dancer Ahlamalik Williams, which ended in 2022. She was married twice, to Sean Penn from 1985 to 1989 and to Guy Ritchie from 2000 to 2008.
