[Blind Gossip] This singer and this actor are now broken up, but the truth about their super high-profile relationship is going to bowl you over!
A music industry insider told us how the relationship was structured.
This was all play-acting. The original plan was to find a tall, dark, handsome actor who could play the role of Sean to her Madonna. [The Actor] was a good physical choice, but he didn’t really fit the bad boy role.
So she decided that what he could help her with was expanding beyond her current fan base. She had gotten a little bored with the whole weirdo image and fan base. She decided he could help her look more mainstream. She wanted to move to “90% classy/10% weird” (to hang on to those old fans).
She would gradually look and dress and act more “normal” around him and put out more mainstream music and attract a more mainstream fan base. In return, she would help him raise his profile as an actor. It was a good gig for him. The engagement was part of that, but he was never going to marry her. NEVER.
If you are wondering why they broke up, this provides some insight.
She was always very controlling and thin-skinned. They were friends, but it got on his nerves that she treated him like she was his boss.
He was supposed to play a big role in the new album. She was going to say that he inspired her to create new music, inspired her image change, inspired the album name, etc. (All part of “mainstreaming” her). He was the star of the video. She got controlling and yelled at him a few times and he literally walked off the set and didn’t come back. They had to scrap all the video of him and make up some new backstory about her and the album.
She is not happy that he didn’t stick around for the album release. She really wants him to show up for [her next gig]. Not sure if he will.
[Optional] Did you think their relationship was real? Do you think he succeeded in making her look more mainstream over the course of their relationship?
