MADGE’S NEW TOY

Swaps one model for another

New York Post - - NEWS - OLI COLE­MAN ocole­man@ny­post.com

HE’S no longer in vogue. Pop diva Madonna, 58, has traded in her sexy, decades-younger model boyfriend — who had been liv­ing with her more than a year — for a slightly older ver­sion, The Post has learned. The Ma­te­rial Girl split from toned boy toy Aboubakar “Brook­lin” Souma­horo, 26 — send­ing him pack­ing from her Man­hat­tan pad — be­fore mov­ing on to 31year-old model Kevin Sam­paio, in­sid­ers dished. On­look­ers as­sumed that Souma­horo, an Ivory Coast model, was just Madge’s fla­vor of the week. But the re­la­tion­ship had se­cretly got­ten se­ri­ous, sources said. The beef­cake fash­ion plate lived for more than a year at the singer’s tony Up­per East Side abode, got close to her kids — and even pushed to par­ent them, caus­ing do­mes­tic fric­tion, the sources said.

Madonna’s ugly in­ter­na­tional cus­tody bat­tle over her old­est son, Rocco, with his fa­ther, Bri­tish di­rec­tor Guy Richie, didn’t help, in­sid­ers said.

Souma­horo re­cently moved out of her home, ac­cord­ing to the sources.

The singer has since been spot­ted on a ro­man­tic get­away in Lis­bon, Portugal, with Sam­paio, Radar On­line re­ported.

Souma­horo is tak­ing the breakup in stride, said one source, who noted that the model had a good run as the star’s main man.

Madonna — whose lovers have in­cluded for­mer Yan­kee slug­ger Alex Ro­driguez, ex-bas­ket­ball star Den­nis Rod­man and ac­tor War­ren Beatty — met Souma­horo at a party in Lon­don years ago and was im­me­di­ately smit­ten, sources said.

Souma­horo moved to New York roughly five years ago to pur­sue a mod­el­ing ca­reer and later left to try his luck in Lon­don.

He re­turned to the Big Ap­ple when things got se­ri­ous with Madonna.

Af­ter Madonna booted Souma­horo, it took her a while to se­ri­ously com­mit to Sam­paio, ac­cord­ing to Radar On­line.

“Madonna did not want to go pub­lic with Kevin un­til now be­cause she was just try­ing to get to know him bet­ter and she wanted to make sure that she could trust him,” a source close to Madge had told Radar.

“She was im­pressed by the fact that . . . he did not go run­ning to the press and that he kept their ro­mance pri­vate.”

In March, she was spot­ted at a Meat­pack­ing District restau­rant get­ting cozy with a mys­tery man — who didn’t ap­pear to be Souma­horo or Sam­paio.

A rep for Madonna would say only, “Not true,” when con­tacted by The Post and re­fused to elab­o­rate.
