Madonna's actually dating a different backup dancer with the same first name -- she's been seeing the much younger Brahim Zaibat, a b-boy dancer.

A source close to the dancer tells X17online exclusively: "They've been seeing each other for a few months but really keeping it on the DL. Madonna did NOT want this getting out before she had time to see if things were really going to work out between her and Brahim or not. Things have been going well so she was about to go public with the relationship anyway."

Apparently the Queen of Pop was upset that so many media outlets misidentified her lover but X17online's here to set it straight! An X17 photographer even saw the couple enter a New York City movie theater last week, but Madge's security details was on high alert and it was impossible to get a shot. The two even left separately to avoid being snapped together.

More details coming ...
