Madonna’s romance with new boyfriend Timor Steffens isn’t just a New Year’s fling. After spending the holidays together in Gstaad, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, the 55-year-old and 26-year-old were spotted continuing their European love tour in Steffens’ home town of Rotterdam last week.
After ditching Madonna’s kids, the couple reportedly spent the night aboard a luxury yacht once owned by opera singer Maria Callas, which has now been transformed into a bed and breakfast.
Owner Willem Post told local media that he only knew he had a superstar among his guests when she came to breakfast. “A blonde woman in an expensive bathrobe and a young guy came to the table,” he explained. “…When I realized it was Madonna, I pretended I didn’t recognize her. I only spoke with her briefly. She found Rotterdam a beautiful city with unique architecture and was interested in the history of the ship.”
Locals later spotted the duo sharing an intimate date night on January 8 at Japanese restaurant Ono in the heart of the Dutch city.
Madonna “came in with her hood up and a thick jacket, so I did not recognize her,” a waitress there, Eileen, told local media. “But then I saw Timor, and I though, oh that must be Madonna.” Staff seated them in a back corner for more privacy, and Eileen said, “they had a really good time.”
Another restaurant worker, Wing Sai, said, “They were very cozy together, held hands” and even kissed at the table.
According to local reports, they spent the night at the nearby Hotel New York and Madonna left by private jet the next day.
Unfortunately, it seems, she didn’t make time during her visit to meet Timor’s mother, who lives in the city. But the Dutch woman spoke out anyways, telling RTL she believes her son and the Material Girl will go the distance.
The couple’s ongoing winter holiday she says, is “something you do with someone you cherish, that you can talk to and be intimate with,” she told local media.
Radar broke the news that Madonna had debuted backup dancer and choreographer Steffens at designer Valentino Garavani’s New Year’s bash just weeks after splitting from previous plaything Brahim Zaibat.
