Jesus says ‘Madonna has the mind and body of a 30-year-old’
EXCLUSIVE from Tom Worden in Rio de Janeiro 21/03/2009
Toyboy’s ex-girlfriend Catharina, 18, tells how model Jesus Luz fell for the Material Girl
Madonna’s toyboy Jesus Luz has told how he fell madly in love with the Queen of Pop because “she has the body and mind of a 30-year-old”.
The Brazilian model also insists the 28-year age gap between them doesn’t matter.
And he has stunned family and friends by declaring he hopes to settle down with 50-year-old Madge – and may even adopt children with her.
Speaking to his ex-girlfriend Catharina Franca, the 22-year-old told her: “Madonna has an amazing body, is a sexy, kind person and a great mother.
“The difference in our ages means nothing. She looks like a 30-year-old and has a youthful personality to go with it.”
He added: “I love her and nothing else matters.”
Madonna met Jesus on a photoshoot in his home city of Rio de Janeiro for W Magazine in December.
The Sunday Mirror revealed last week he is now moving in to her New York apartment – just months after they met.
And in our exclusive interview, his stunning first love Catharina, 18, refuted rumours that Jesus is only dating Madonna to cash in on her fame.
The wannabe actress – who also denied reports she had described Madge as “a ridiculous old bag” – added: “He’s not with Madonna for her money or her fame. He’s with her because he loves her.
“Jesus is beautiful and so is Madonna – they make a lovely couple. They have a lot in common. They are both very into the way they look.
“Jesus can be very vain – he once told me, ‘If you don’t go to the gym, you will get fat and then I’ll dump you’. And if Madonna looked like a normal 50-year-old, he wouldn’t look twice at her.”
Catharina met Jesus on Rio’s famous Ipanema beach in summer 2005. They stayed together for 18 months and have remained close ever since.
Catharina said: “I could not believe how beautiful he was. He has amazing blue eyes.
“We even talked about getting married and having children, but we are both very jealous people and eventually it destroyed our relationship.”
Catharina dumped Jesus in January 2008 after a row on New Year’s Eve 2007.
Eleven months later Jesus got his big break by being picked to model with Madonna. He immediately hit it off with the singer, who was divorced from film director Guy Ritchie the previous month.
Jesus now wants to relocate to New York where he has landed a modelling contract. On Friday he went for a stroll along Ipanema beach as he waited for a working visa.
Wearing flip flops, shorts, designer shades and a blue cap, he showed off his toned body – and a tattoo of his own name across his back.
He is already close to Madonna’s three children – Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight and David, three.
“He adores kids but he accepts they could not have children of their own, and is talking about the possibility of adopting with Madonna,” said Catharina.
“If they stay together, he will make a great father figure.”
