Madonna has broken up with her boyfriend of four years, 28-year-old social media influencer, Ahlamalik Williams. He also served as the singer’s backup dancer for quite some time.
“Madonna has thrown herself into a busy social life and has been seeing her friends and family after the split,” a source told The Sun. “She has a packed schedule, working on her upcoming biopic, new music and looking after her family,” they added.
The source also reported that things have been “on and off” with Williams “for a while” and although they still love each other a lot, they ultimately decided to separate.
“They are still on good terms and there are no hard feelings but they are at different places with their lives, they spent months together on tour and in lockdown, but now he has moved out of her home,” said the source.
What does Madonna have to say about breaking up with her boyfriend?
Madonna also took to her Instagram to post a story, supposedly hinting at her breakup with her boyfriend. “Karma said: when somebody in your life is not right for you… god will continuously use them to hurt you until you become strong enough to let them go,” read the text.
A little bit on the couple’s relationship
The “Material Girl” hitmaker started dating Williams in 2018 after getting acquainted with each other in 2015. Although many people raised their concerns over the huge age gap between the singer and her backup dancer boyfriend, she didn’t seem to pay heed to their criticisms.
During the couple’s low-key relationship, Madonna helped Ahlamalik to land a deal with Stella McCartney. He even tried to launch his music career with the help of the world-renowned pop sensation. The social media star’s father recently commented on their relationship and how he believed that the singer will help him make a successful career in music.
“I believe too, in my heart of hearts, that she will help produce his music once this tour is over,” said Williams’ father Drue to The Sun. “She’s going to stick with him because of the talent he has,” he added. He even blessed the couple claiming that he is “happy for them”.
Even though the couple was not very open with their relationship to the public, they have been spotted multiple times in public together. In 2021, Madonna, her boyfriend and all six of her children enjoyed a vacation to Italy to celebrate her 63rd birthday. The singer took to her Instagram to share many pictures from this joyous moment and also shared photos of her now ex-boyfriend.
