Madonna celebrated her birthday with a hot young beau … who’s only slightly less than half her age.
The singer, who turned 53 on Monday, allegedly celebrated by putting on some PDA with 24-year-old boyfriend Brahim Zaibat.
The megastar and the French dancer have reportedly had an on-off relationship, with the U.K.’s Daily Mail reporting that they split in May after nine months — only to reconnect in late June.
But the pair appear to be hot and heavy again — they were just photographed in New York’s tony Hamptons, smooching and snuggling beachside.
“They looked like young lovers,” a gawker told the U.K.’s Sun.
Well, at least one of them was. ... Oh, we’re just kidding — more power to you, Madge! And happy birthday!
Her reality stardom seems to have faded along with her marriage, but Kate Gosselin says that although she misses having a partner, she’s happier to be single than with ex-husband Jon.
“I’m lonely,” the mom of eight says in a clip from just-canceled “Kate Plus Eight.” “I miss having another parent here. Not the parent that was here.”
So as you might have guessed, she doesn’t really miss Jon — who, after a brief post-split stint as a wannabe Hamptons playboy, fell off even the celebrity-wannabe radar.
“I know that I’m glad to be divorced and on my own,” says the single mother. “I wouldn’t change my marriage because I have eight awesome kids that I would not change. But people change and they’re not who you thought they were and if they’re not for you, move on. And I have.”
Jon, she says, is “working now, so he’s definitely distracted elsewhere, which is good. And he’s kept to his two weekends a month. And the kids come home happy, and that’s good.”
Indeed it is. And maybe the cancellation of the show will be a healthy thing for them.
Ooh ... so apparently, Charlie Sheen’s appearance at the Gathering of the Juggalos (a congregation of Insane Clown Posse fans) didn’t pan out so well after all.
Despite initial reports from TMZ (which may or may not have come from Charlie himself, we’re just saying), it appears the former “Two and a Half Men” star did not necessarily win over the crowd.
“Charlie did not get booed off of the stage,” his rep told E! News. “The Juggalos were chanting ‘whoop-whoop,’ which is a show of love. Charlie Sheen did well in front of the Juggalos.”
“It was a huge response. He was tremendously received,” continued the flack. “There is no greater compliment to have garbage thrown at an artist. The crowd didn’t want him to leave.”
Last time we checked, the throwing of garbage was not, in fact, considered a compliment to an artist. However, we’ve never technically learned the rules of etiquette where Juggalos are concerned — must’ve missed that day in finishing school — so we’ll have to reserve judgment.
