Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s 26-year-old daughter seems to believe she’s ‘cursed’.
Lourdes is known for forging her career in the fashion and music industries but has recently encountered an unusual stumbling block in her personal life: her preference for men.
Despite her success on the catwalk and as a musician under the name Lolahol, Lourdes disclosed to The Face magazine an unanticipated hardship, referring to her love life as a “curse.”
Unlike her renowned mother, who notoriously experimented with her sexuality, Lourdes has struggled with her dating choices.
Lourdes, who identifies as heterosexual and is only attracted to men, openly expressed her romantic interests as a source of distraction and aggravation.
During an insightful conversation with friend and fellow artist Eartheater for The Face, she bared her soul about the difficulties of staying focused amid dating men.
“It’s such a curse. If you can avoid it, men or boys in general, I would because what a distraction,” she remarked. “I would definitely say just, like, avoid boys at all costs if you want to be focused on something.”
Her previous experiences support this counsel. The teenage model’s public split from actor Timothée Chalamet, a high school classmate at the time, received a lot of attention in 2014, with stories claiming that Timothée’s suspected adultery was the main cause.
Despite this, she talked highly about her ex in a 2021 interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying she still respected him despite their turbulent history.
Although Lourdes believes that she is “cursed,” she is open about her feelings and desires. When asked if she would consider exploring relationships with women to avoid the drama associated with men, she openly admitted to being straight.
“I don’t like girls. I’m painfully straight. It’s terrible. I wish it wasn’t so, but unfortunately, these are the cards I’ve been dealt. I am cursed, plagued with liking these men,” she admitted.
Despite her alleged romantic problems, the multi-talented actress did find love in 2017 with skateboarder and photographer Jonathan Puglia.
However, the status of their relationship is clouded in doubt due to Lourdes’ tendency for keeping her personal life private.
Fans can only surmise whether Jonathan’s presence on her social media contributes to what Leon refers to as her “curse.”
Madonna’s first child is Lourdes, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Carlos Leon.
In addition to her son Rocco from a previous marriage with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, the Hung Up hitmaker is a mother to her adopted children David Banda, Mercy, and twins Esther and Stella from Malawi.
