madonnaMadonna has reportedly encouraged new boyfriend Jesus Luz to switch to her beloved Kabbalah faith.

The Brazilian male model was brought up as a strict Catholic but is said to have joined an online community for Kabbalah followers on Madonna’s recommendation.

A source told the Mirror: “Jesus’s family are very traditional and quite religious so this news is sure to come as something of a shock.

“But Jesus is totally taken with Madonna and is slightly in awe of her. Quite simply he can’t get enough, and finds her utterly compelling and bewitching.

“The pair have spent a lot of time together in recent weeks and Madonna’s chatted quite freely about her personal beliefs - especially Kabbalah.

“He has taken a real interest in it and started making a few online enquiries into the faith. He has joined an online Kabbalah group and is keen to become an active member.

Madonna has also offered to take him to the Kabbalah centre in New York and he is exceedingly keen to take her up on that.”

The pair are believed to have started dating after posing together for a sexy photo-shoot for W magazine during the South American leg of Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour. The new relationship put to rest rumours of Madonna’s ongoing fling with Alex Rodriguez.

Madonna officially separated from husband Guy Ritchie last autumn.
