Dating Rumors Swirl Around Tenor Jonas Kaufmann, Pop Singer Madonna >>

Rumors have been flying about a love connection between the world's most famous tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, and famous pop star Madonna. Sources claim that the musically inclined pair first met at a Christopher Makos exhibition in London and are now an item. The Queen of Pop is hoping that the two will be able to make an album together. Madonna, fresh off an extremely talked-about "Interview" magazine cover, has had a slew of lovers in the past. In the summer, she was rumored to be dating her 26-year-old dancer and choreographer Timor Steffens, but that quickly ended and has now set her sights on Kaufmann. But the recently separated Kaufmann seems to still be playing the field. Recently, he has been spotted with Christiane Lutz, an opera director who works at the Graz and Lubeck theaters.
