Madonna is recovering from her recent horseriding accident with the help of model beau Jesus Luz - after fashion mogul Marc Jacobs stepped in to keep the Brazilian in the U.S.
The Material Girl has been dating Luz since her split from movie director husband Guy Ritchie last year (08).
He has been nursing her back to health after she fell off a horse at the New York home of her friend Steven Klein, suffering minor injuries and bruises.
The model was concerned he would soon have to leave the pop star's side and return to his native Brazil - but fashion boss Jacobs reportedly stepped in and saved the day.
A source tells New York gossip column PageSix, "(Jacobs) wrote a letter of support for Jesus work permit. Marc campaigned for Jesus, saying he is highly talented and a necessity to the label.
"All these fashion lines are hiring Jesus as a favour to Madonna. As long as he can legally work in the U.S., they can be together.
Jacobs rep declined to comment.
