Madonna’s New “Romance” With Boxer Josh Popper Is Allegedly A Stunt To Promote His Gym
False alarm, everyone- 64-year-old Madonna is reportedly not getting dicked down by a 29-year-old beefcake…at least not a 29-year-old beefcake named Josh Popper. Fresh off from breaking up with her 23-year-old boy toy Andrew Darnell, it was reported that she quickly moved on to a new and older piece, Josh Popper, after she appeared in pictures on the Instagram page of his NYC boxing gym. But it turns out that Madge can’t post a picture of herself pressed up against a man while dressed as Blade without everyone thinking they’re doing it. And apparently, that’s exactly what they wanted everyone to think. A source close to Madonna tells Page Six that the photographs of her and the boxing coach were just to help him promote his gym. Josh, who recently appeared on an episode of Bravo’s Summer House, has been coaching her 17-year-old son David Banda to take part in a charity boxing match that will help raise money, hopefully, to help keep Madge from terrorizing Instagram Live.
In true Madonna fashion, she posted a few pictures on her story that teetered the line between awkward and artistic, captioned with a pseudo-intellectual soliloquy. In case you missed those pics:

But MadPop is not a thing as Page Six’s source says that she was just helping him out with a little PR:
“He’s a good-looking guy, but Madonna isn’t looking for love at the moment,” one source said. “Josh has been training her son and she’s impressed. She said she would help him promote the gym.
“He’s up-and-coming and has just appeared in a reality show on Bravo, so he is eager to get attention with Madonna,” the source added of Popper, who made a cameo in Monday’s episode of “Summer House.”
Still, the source clarified, “That’s not to rule out any romance in the future — but for now things are strictly platonic.”
Emphasis on “for now.” Madonna hasn’t been shy about her affinity for the LDM (Leonardo DiCaprio Method) of strictly dating partners decades younger than herself. Maybe it’s Peter Pan Syndrome, or maybe she wants someone who wasn’t born yet when Shanghai Surprise (1986) came out and doesn’t know it exists. So it looks like the only poppers that Madonna is currently doing are the chemical sniffing kind:
