He's a French artist named JR, and while nothing is confirmed, onlookers saw him and Madge on what they described as looking an awful lot like a date earlier this week. The two were spotted looking cozy at Megu, a New York City hot spot, on Wednesday night.

"They were acting like a couple, chatting and laughing closely in a corner," one onlooker said, adding that the two were dining together in a private room.

Madonna and JR have known each other for quite a while — Madge's son Rocco interned for the artist back in 2014. They've also shown up on each other's Instagrams. Madonna posted a photo earlier this week posing with JR in a pope costume, alongside the cryptic caption, "Sometimes you just have to take off the mask and confess! Thank you @jr."

And several weeks ago, JR posted a photo of Madonna on his Instagram, though it appeared to be more artistic than a sweet couple shot.


"The Madonna," JR wrote alongside his pic, along with a crown emoji.
