'I prefer dating older women': Madonna's lover
Timor Steffens opens up about the 30-year age gap in his relationship
In an interview with the Mirror, Timor said: “There is an age gap between me and Madonna but I don’t notice it."
“My girlfriends have always been older than me and that’s how I like it. I learn a lot."
“Mum is a big inspiration. She is a fighter, a strong independent woman, and any relationship I’ve had in the past was mostly with women that are independent and like to have an opinion.”
Netherlands-born Timor told how his mum was so important as he grew up because he had no father figure when his parents split.
He said: “I want to be a dad, it’s my goal to have my own family, that’s there in the back of my mind all the time.”
Madonna first introduced Timor as her boyfriend at designer Rudolph Valentino’s New Year’s Eve Party in Switzerland.
They have since been inseparable and Timor has become close to her four children.
He said: “I hang out with a lot of celebrities. I hang out with their kids, I see the world."
“But I do that because I genuinely care for who they are as a person. I’m a very loving person – if I hang out with them it’s because I have a big connection with them.”
Timor says he and Madonna spend much of their time together in the gym.
He said: “Madonna is so disciplined with the gym, which is great."
“I’m in shape, I’ve got a washboard stomach but she inspires me to go that extra mile. I call it ‘besting’ when I workout really hard.”
Speaking of Madonna’s religion, Kabbalah, he said: “I like it, it’s spiritual – I’m not a member of it but I am into it.”
Having worked with the pop star on her music film secretprojectrevolution, Timor said she had inspired him creatively and as a person.
He explained: “She always looks for new challenges in life."
“When everyone walks the right path, she will walk the left path to show that she has a vision and her own way of expressing.
"She is a very strong woman and doesn’t need to follow the mainstream. That’s what makes her an artist.”
Rumors: Madonna Splits With Boyfriend Timor Steffens Amidst Birthday Vacation
Madge is single and ready to mingle! Days before her 56th birthday, Madonna split from much-younger boyfriend Timor Steffens, asking him to pack his bags and head home in the middle of their European vacation.
The pair, who have been spotted out in public together since January, arrived in the South of France on Aug. 2, along with her children, but on son Rocco’s Aug. 11 birthday, “Madonna politely asked Timor to take his luggage and leave. He packed up and left the trip and said they were done,” a source tells Us Weekly.
The pop icon has since traveled to Ibiza and her 26-year-old boy toy has not joined her. But don’t worry about the Material Girl.
A source close to Madonna tells Us, “It was never serious, and she was never that into it. She’s been working on her album and getting Lola off to school, no time for anything heavy.”
Prior to dating backup dancer Steffens, Madonna was with Brahim Zaibat, also three decades her junior, for three years. The Grammy winner has shown no signs of a traumatic breakup on her Instagram account lately, posting several birthday-themed images with the hashtag “livingforlove.”
