Madonna is seeing a 26-year-old dancer.

The 55-year-old singer - who split from partner Brahim Zaibat, 25, six months ago - has been reportedly having a ''fling'' with dancer and choreographer Timor Steffens for more than six months, but friends of the 'Hung Up' hitmaker insist the romance ''isn't serious''.

Madonna - who has children Lourdes, 17, Rocco, 13, Mercy, eight, and David, also eight - have been spotted out together several times, including at the Grammy awards and most recently at a preview of 'Holler If Ya Hear Me' on New York's Broadway this week.

However, despite their string of dates over such a long period of time, the pair are not in a relationship.

A source told E! News: ''It's not serious. [It's] just a fling.''

The couple met last year in Switzerland after being introduced at a chateau owned by fashion designer Valentino, a regular retreat for the pop superstar.

The 'Like a Virgin' hitmaker recently revealed her father hates her sexy image.

She said: ''I would always say, 'Dad, I'm an artist, I have to express myself. You don't understand ... He's like, 'Do you have to simulate masturbation on the bed? Do you have to?' Yes, dad, I do.''

The 'Vogue' star also joked her dad has ''finally'' learned to accept her raunchy image.

She added: ''I think he's finally come to terms with it. It's only taken 30 years.''
