“He’s an up-and-coming guy who’s just appeared on Bravo’s reality show, so he’s desperate to get Madonna’s attention,” added Popper’s source, who appeared on Monday’s episode of “Summer House.”

Page Six reached out to Madonna representatives for comment.
Now, Madonna “has a lot of other things in her life that require her attention. Most importantly mourning her brother with her family — she’s especially worried about her father and spending time with him.”
Madonna’s older brother, Anthony Ciccone, died on Feb. 25 at the age of 66 after a troubled life with alcohol and drug addiction. In 2011 he was reported to be living under a bridge in his home state of Michigan.
Anthony once complained that his relatives ignored his pleas for help. “my family
They basically turned their backs on me when I got stuck. You think I haven’t answered this question a million times – why is my sister a multi-millionaire and I’m homeless on the street?
While Madonna and other family members reportedly offered to put Anthony in rehab, he refused until 2017. The singer and his five other siblings have reportedly been supporting and visiting Anthony as his health has declined over the past few months.
Madonna posted about him on Instagram over the weekend, noting how grateful she was for his influences at a young age: Richard Brautigan, Jack Kerouac, big-hearted, thinking outside the box. You have planted many important seeds. “
Madonna, whose mother died when the singer was 5, was especially close to her 91-year-old father, Tony. According to sources, the death of his eldest son affected him greatly.
“Madonna spends time with her family and is especially keen to support a weak Tony. This is a very worrying time,” the source said. “Madonna is so busy preparing for her tour that it can be overwhelming, but everyone knows she needs to be alone right now to be with her family. Being with her dad is her number one priority.”
