Here's what Zaibat had to say about how things started up between the two:
"It all started on September 22nd at the launch of Madonna's new ready-to-wear clothing range. My mate Norman, who danced for her and who became her personal trainer, asked me to dance at the evening. I performed a solo to Material Girl. Then I met Madonna on the sidelines, and she just thanked me for my show. It wasn't like meeting a monster! She's just a woman like all the others. She's an extraordinary artist and world famous, of course, but a woman above all. You know she wasn't the first well known female singer I'd met. I was delighted to meet her but not stressed out."
We're glad to hear she wasn't monster-like! Here's Zaibat on why the couple went public about their relationship:
"It wasn't her deliberate decision and it wasn't mine. We were in a club and we were seen dancing together. It was because it was Madonna that the affair took on massive proportions. Nothing was calculated by us. We had a nice night together without thinking that there might be paparazzi there."
And here's Zaibat on rumors about him and his past:
"To make things clear. Lots of stories are going around about me and some are completely false. Those about my supposed edgy past in the suburbs, for example. All the claims of my mother, completely invented. Now I want to speak for myself, I hope so that people can discover a little bit about who I really am. I had a normal childhood. We were four children, and because my mother brought us up on her own I took on the role of a substitute father. Apart from this, I enjoyed exactly the same childhood as any other kid from my social class. At around 13 or 14, dance became an obsession for me, and I quickly reached a high standard, thanks to my flexibility which was exceptional. Then I formed the Pockemon Crew and, in 2003, I became champion of the world. It all happened very quickly."
Inneresting stuff, Zaibat! As we've said before, we think you two look really good together, and we wish you all the best!
