Old Pics of Madonna and Jean-Michel Basquiat During Their Dating Days

Madonna and Basquiat dated for a while, but his heroin addiction ended up pulling them apart.

Madonna: “Basquiat was my boyfriend for a while, and I remember getting up in the middle of the night and he wouldn't be in bed lying next to me; he'd be standing, painting, at four in the morning, this close to the canvas, in a trance. I was blown away by that, that he worked when he felt moved.” (Interview magazine, December 2014)

“He was an amazing man and deeply talented. I loved him,” she said. “When I broke up with him, he made me give all [his paintings] back to him. And then he painted over them black.” She regrets giving the art back, but felt pressured to do so since it was something he had created. (The Howard Stern Show, March 2015)

Here below is a photo collection that shows lovely moments of Madonna and Jean-Michel Basquiat during their dating days in the early 1980s.
