Madonna invites boyfriend’s mother on holiday

By Tribute News on August 21, 2012 | 4 Comments

Madonna and Brahim Zaibat Madonna has paid for the mother of French dancer Brahim Zaibat to join them on vacation. The group are holidaying at Hotel Du Cap, near Antibes, on the French Riviera. Patricia Vidal - seven years Madonna's junior at 47 - has left her small apartment in Marseille for the week so she and her son's girlfriend can get to know one another. Madonna has also invited all of Brahim's cousins - which will leave her with a £100,000 bill for the week-long break. A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brahim lives in New York now, so it's nice for him to see his mum and his cousins. They're all going to relax with Madonna's four kids." Madonna's daughter Lourdes reportedly has a crush on one of Brahim's cousins. Her eldest child - who works in the wardrobe department on her tour - is only eight years younger than the performer's boyfriend. Madonna also has son Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie and two adopted children, David and Mercy. The 'Girls Gone Wild' singer recently urged people to support jailed former Ukrainian leader Yulia Tymoshenko. She engaged with the small crowd who were watching her rehearsals ahead of a show in the country's capital, Kiev, to ask about the former Prime Minister, who was jailed in 2011 for her alleged abuse of office during her time in power from December 2007 to March 2010. In a video posted on YouTube, Madonna says: "I don't even know the actual truth, I've just heard some stories from emails ... Is it true that the woman who was the former president (sic) is in jail here?"

    Bizarre age gap aside, that’s one hell of an expensive trip. What a waste.

    Since they’re both adults the age gap doesn’t really weird me out, but I would feel so awkward dating someone who’s mother is younger than me..let alone my kid dating someone older than me.
