In an interview on Brazilian TV, Jesus Luz says of Madonna, "She is my friend, only my friend."

Luz also denied the rumors, started by the model's own father, that he and Madonna were getting married.

"Madonna is a person who I admire very much, a friend who has entered my life and [with whom] I keep in contact. I cannot say anything more than I don't have plans of marrying her," Luz said. " I can't say if she is the woman in my life."

Madonna, as always, isn't commenting on Jesus' statements.
