Friends say Madge is smitten by her latest toyboy, who is from the Ivory Coast and is known to his friends as Brooklin.
One pal said:
“They were at a party together back in November when they got chatting, and hit it off straight away.
“Over the next few weeks, they got together a couple more times and she invited him over to her place, where they sat up all night talking.The next thing we heard, he had quit his job and had gone out to meet her on tour. It’s obviously a very close friendship.”
