Take a look at the material girl's past romances.
Described as the "love of her life" Madonna met first husband Sean Penn on the set of the 'Material Girl' video. Madonna even dedicated her 'True Blue' album to him, yet it wasn't to last as the couple's volatile marriage ended in divorce, just as Madonna's career went stellar.
One of Madonna's many-alleged lesbian flings. Madonna and comedienne Sandra Bernhard controversial friendship set tongues wagging. Sandra is rumoured to have introduced Madonna to kabbalah yet the pair are not known to be close anymore.
Madonna entered a relationship with basketball superstar Dennis Rodman soon after the release of her 'Erotica' album and 'Sex' book. Rodman would later include saucy details of the liaison in his kiss-and-tell memoirs.
Madonna pictured with British film director Andy Bird. The relationship inspired her hit single, 'Beautiful Stranger' as well as top rom-com, 'Notting Hill'.
Carlos Leon was Madonna's personal trainer and would go on to father the Material Girl's daughter, Lourdes 'Lola' Leon. Despite engagement rumours, the couple broke up soon after Lola was born.
Chris Paciello was a member of Madonna's inner circle that centred around the Miami club circuit. Madonna allegedly dumped Chris after rumours of his dodgy business affairs came to light.
British actor Rupert Everett worked with Madonna on the box office bomb, 'The Next Best Thing' and quickly formed an interesting friendship that Rupert bitched about in his top-selling autobiography.
Male model Tony Ward first met Madonna when she allegedly stubbed her cigarette out on him at a party. Tony would take a starring role in her controversial video for hit single, 'Justify My Love' (he had previously played a mer man in her Cherish video) and the couple were inseperable until rumours of a secret wife emerged and Tony was no more. However Madonna seemed to have patched things up with Tony as he made a cameo appearance in her X-rated picture book, Sex.
Having divorced Sean Penn, Madonna set her sights on another Hollywood legend, big screen lothario Warren Beatty. Having won the coveted role of Breathless Mahony in Beatty's Dick Tracy, the couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance, captured on screen in Madonna's reveal-all documentary, 'In Bed With Madonna'. Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone, recently revealed that Warren proposed to Madonna, and her refusal marked the end of the relationship.
Having been introduced to each other by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, British film director quickly ended his relationship with TV presenter Tania Strycker, marking the start of Madonna's love for all things British. Madonna soon fell pregnant with second child, Rocco, and the pair married in December 2001. The pair continue to present a united front despite constant divorce rumours in the press.
