Savage Garden: Darren Hayes reveals he used to date Madonna’s younger brother


Savage Garden singer Darren Hayes reveals he used to date Madonna’s younger brother Christopher Ciccone

Darren Hayes has dropped a bombshell about his relationship history.

The Savage Garden frontman, 50, revealed on Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa on Friday that he dated two people close to pop singer Madonna – including her younger brother Christopher Ciccone.

‘I guess I can say this now because I’ve been married for 17 years, but I went on a few dates with her brother,’ Darren said.

Darren explained he had always been a huge fan of Madonna, who was very close with her brother during the height of her pop career.

Christopher even served as a backup dancer for the Queen of Pop in the ’80s.

But the siblings fell out after he wrote a tell-all memoir, Life With My Sister Madonna.

‘And then she cut him out of her life forever,’ Darren recalled.

The Truly Madly Deeply singer also confessed he briefly dated Alek Keshishian, the director of the 1991 documentary In Bed with Madonna.

‘The thing was, I wasn’t like a Madonna stalker,’ he laughed.

‘They could have introduced me to her the whole time. And it was really important for me to let them know, like, “No, I’m into you. I’m not into her,” even though I was totally gagging to meet her.’

As for both relationships, Darren said it simply didn’t work out.

‘Christopher and I just didn’t gel. Alek and I had a really special connection… but it just wasn’t love for me,’ he said.

Darren went on to marry husband Richard Cullen in 2005.

While he never met the Material Girl singer while he was dating her brother and Alek, Darren said he finally met his idol at a party he attended with Richard.

He recalled how the intimate event turned into an ‘impromptu’ birthday celebration for Madonna.

‘I walk into the room, I scan the room, and there’s this huge, golden light from God on Madonna!’ he said.

It turns out Madonna actually knew Darren and loved his music after she attended one of his concerts back in 1998.

But Darren ended up fleeing the party after he saw Alek whispering in Madonna’s ear – and assumed his ex was detailing his history with both him and Madonna’s brother.

‘I don’t know if she loves me now, because she obviously would have found out all that stuff,’ he continued.

Prior to meeting Richard, Darren was married to his childhood sweetheart Colby Taylor, with whom he tied the knot with in 1994.

They split in 1998 at the height of Darren’s career with Savage Garden.
