Love life and boyfriend
Madison is amongst the most secretive of actresses when it comes to talking about her love life, and hasn’t spoken of any men or women whom she has perhaps been with.

Many of Madison’s fans believe her to be a lesbian, claiming that this is why she avoids talking about her past and present relationships; a fan has also claimed to have seen Madison kissing her female friend at a party in Los Angeles, California, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Madison addressed the rumors.
There are also some who believe that she’s today in a relationship with an American non-celebrity man, but prefers to keep him away from media because of how her career could affect their relationship; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of November 2021, Madison seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
