'Queen of Pop' Madonna has enraptured the entire world with blockbuster hits like 'Papa Don't Preach' and 'Express Yourself' and the 61-year-old singer is in love with a 26-year-old boy, named Ahlamalik Williams.
Expressing her feelings on Instagram, she posted a lovely wish for the birthday boy with a string of images, which includes an illustration of the pair, one where they are kissing and wrapping their arms around each other along with a snap where they are drinking cocktails at a bar. She also wrote a heartfelt message, "Happy Birthday My Love ♥️. I Could not think of a better person to be in Quarantine with!" making it known to her fans and followers that he's the one she is in quarantine with.
The pair may have a shocking 36-year age difference but it seems like the global icon is smitten with her new lover. Not just her, Madonna's children seem to have accepted him in their life too. On her Instagram Story, she posted how her adopted twins, Stella and Estere, had created sweet hand-made cards for him.
Apparently, Madonna's 23-year-old daughter Lourdes 'Lola' Leon also seems to be in approval of their relationship. The gesture is incredibly heartwarming and it leaves fans wondering who Ahlamalik Williams really is.
Known as Malik or Skitzo, he is the professional backup dancer who auditioned for Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour in 2015. He has been linked to the star since last year. According to Mirror, she first spotted him at 'America’s Got Talent' as contestant Ahlamalik when he landed a lead role as Michael Jackson in a Las Vegas tribute show. The show’s production manager Jamie King was the common link and he revealed, “She saw videos of Ahlamalik dancing and was intrigued,” said Drue.
“She told Jamie King she wanted him on the tour. We think she recognized his charisma and creativity. His swag. He stands out. He got the news he was going to join her tour on his birthday in April 2015. I think they have been dating for a year and got serious at the start of this latest tour, the Madame X tour.”
Born in April 1994 to a US Navy veteran father, Drue Williams, who began his military service in the 1970s and mother Laurie. He has two siblings, brother Ahlijah and sister LeYana.
According to Mirror, his parents know about the relationship and approve of it. Drue, 59, told the outlet, “Madonna went on and on about how much she cares about our son. She said he’s intelligent and very talented. She told us she is so much in love with him and that we didn’t have anything to worry about as she was going to take care of him. We know there’s a huge age gap between the two – 36 years. Madonna is two years older than me. But I have told my son love doesn’t have an age range when you’re consenting adults. I asked him how he feels about her and he says he has never been happier.”
“We’re both big fans of Madonna,” her mom Laurie said, adding, "but we do worry about him, and of course we don’t want him to get hurt. But I believe Madonna is going to stick with him because of the talent he has. As well as a dancer, he’s a songwriter, too. We met her after a show and it was incredible. The first thing she said to me was, ‘Wasn’t he fantastic?’ You never know, they could get married.”
In the same interview, Drue also revealed that Williams was dating another girl when he met Madonna. “He did have a girlfriend when he and Madonna met, but things weren’t going that well and they broke up,” he said. The happy pictures are proof that the couple is going strong and may have a future ahead.
