Madonna, 64, confirmed on Tuesday that she is dating Josh Popper.

The kissing photo was part of a series of snaps from a Purim party. She dressed as Kween Esther for the event.
Last week, Daily Mail reported that Madonna was dating Popper after the Like a Prayer singer posted a photo of her pressing her lips against Popper’s shoulder and squeezing his bulging tattooed right arm as he made a fist at the gym.
Popper is the owner of the boxing gym Bredwinners in Manhattan.
‘In a male driven culture, there are always exceptions,’ she wrote in the Instagram Story, which followed a photo of the Material Girl embracing a punching bag captioned: ‘Hard to ignore the reality… that most women get demolished.’
Popper also shared the photo on his own account, where he included a second photo with his arm wrapped around the pop star, flanked by three friends as they pose outside a boxing ring.
But sources tell DailyMail.com that this public display of affection wasn’t just for show and that Madonna and Popper have been seeing each other romantically.
According to one source, Popper has also been teaching one of Madge’s six children how to box.
But now, with the kissing photo, Madonna is indicating she’s ready to go public with her new romance.

Unlike his superstar girlfriend, Popper enjoys a relatively low-key life.
He was once a promising defensive lineman for Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, from which he graduated in 2015. He later tried out for two NFL teams but failed to make the cut.
According to his LinkedIn, he went on to become a licensed insurance salesman at New York Life.
It wasn’t until the 2020 pandemic that the fighter opened his own modest gym on the third-floor of a building on East 28th Street, where he is one of several coaches teaching boxing to adults and children.
A brief biography on the Bredwinner’s website describes Popper as a ‘lifelong athlete and a full-time coach.’
‘For Josh, boxing isn’t just about teaching you to move in the ring but teaching you how to move throughout life.
‘With Coach Josh, you can expect to use your body and your brain to learn a new skill, build strength, and move functionally.
‘Whether you’re boxing to have fun, to learn a new sport, or to fight in the ring, all levels of fighter are welcome here. He starts where you are,’ the bio states.
