A spokesperson for Madonna has shut down a tabloid report suggesting the pop icon is engaged.

Editors at In Touch magazine claimed the Material Girl is ready to take her romance with 25-year-old Brahim Zaibat to the next level by getting married.

Madonna was even said to have introduced the back-up dancer as her “fiance” during a visit to the Kabbalah Centre in New York last week, with a purported source insisting, “She looked so happy and didn’t try to keep it a secret. It was like she wanted everyone to know she was going to marry this man.”

However, a representative for the star has now set the record straight, telling the engagement report is “not true at all”.

Madonna’s first marriage to actor Sean Penn ended in 1989 after four years, and she divorced British filmmaker Guy Ritchie in 2008 after eight years as man and wife.
