The 25-year-old’s father, Drue Williams, claimed to TMZ on Monday, December 30, that the couple have been together for more than a year. Drue also said that the Queen of Pop, 61, has dropped the L word.

“Love has no age,” he told the website. “My son is livin’ la vida loca, and I’m just happy for him.”

TMZ reported that the “Like a Virgin” singer met Ahlamalik’s parents in New York City in September after one of her concerts at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard Gilman Opera House. Two months later, she extended an invitation to a show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas — and then reportedly invited Ahlamalik and his parents to her hotel suite for a dinner cooked by her personal chef.

Drue told the site that Madonna also invited him and his wife to her 2020 concerts in London and Paris.

The seven-time Grammy winner and Ahlamalik fueled romance rumors earlier this month after they got cozy in Miami. They were spotted getting off a private jet together before heading to a nearby hotel, where he wrapped his arm around her waist.

Ahlamalik has also been a fixture on Madonna’s Instagram page. In June, she uploaded a video of them dancing all over each other and drinking champagne while celebrating her album Madame X going No. 1.
