What benefits come with that friendship? Use your imagination!
After learning that Jesus Luz is referring to her as "just a friend," Madonna is gonna be far from pleased. Heck, she may even kick his ass off the couch in her New York City apartment ... where he has allegedly been living.
"She is my friend ... only my friend," the hunky 22-year-old model said in his first-ever TV interview on the Brazilian TV program Fantastico.
Luz also denied he and Madge are "going to the temple" anytime soon to make it official - even though his dad, Luiz Heitor Pinto da Luz, recently spoke to Quem magazine about the pair's upcoming commitment ceremony.
"Madonna is a person who I admire very much, a friend who has entered my life and [with whom] I keep in contact. I cannot say anything more than I don't have plans of marrying her. I can't say if she is the woman in my life," he said.
Jesus Luz also touched on the oft-used moniker ascribed to him, "boy toy," and strangely didn't seem all that bothered by the less-than-flattering term.
"Frankly, I never give importance to what others say about me," the chosen one said. "They can write that I'm a 'toy boy' or 'boy toy.' And I won't care."
According to reports, Jesus Luz is currently living in the Central Park West apartment owned by Madge. Well, at least until he moves to the doghouse.
How Madonna truly feels about his comments, we can't say - but she is happy that another recent ex, Alex Rodriguez, has moved on with actress Kate Hudson.
"Madonna is actually relieved that A-Rod seems so happy with Kate," says a source. "He's always treated women like he treats home runs anyway."
"He's getting a great batting average here. In fact, Madonna is actually proud that she's raised the bar for him, so he can date a better caliber of women."
Sources say that Kate Hudson and A-Rod have been secretly seeing one another for the past month and a half, but are still trying to keep things quiet.
"When she hits Yankee Stadium, she sits in A-Rod's private seats," says a New York Daily News source. "They're absolutely giddy when they're together."
Too bad Madonna and Jesus Luz are just "friends" and a double-date is out of the question. He's already got the Yankees cap on and everything.
