New York, Jan 19 (ANI): Queen of pop Madonna seems to have had an effect on Brazilian male model Jesus Luzs life and career, with him using his association with her to demand a bigger pay for his work.

Madge, 50, had met the 21-year-old model during her Sticky & Sweet tour in South America, and Luz has ever since used that as a climbing ladder for his career.

All the modeling agencies came after him, but he chose Ford Models because [photographer and Madonna pal] Steven Klein had a talk with Katie Ford and convinced her that Jesus is, in fact, holy material, the New York Post quoted a source as telling

Not only is Luz looking for more lucrative offers he has according to his former agent Sergio Mattos, the owner of 40 Graus Models, stopped picking up calls.

He stopped answering his phone, his mother quit her job . . . But I wish him the best. And now I have a new Jesus, Mattos, who just signed a contract with Spanish model Jesus Perez, told the Web site.

This is a much better Jesus, and he’’s not a fan of Madonna’’s, he stated.

Ever since meeting Madge, Luz has been raising his price and overestimating his importance.

He was asking for some 135,000 dollars a show. He did the same job last year for a mere 225 dollars, a Brazilian source said.

A lot of people are contacting him but because he keeps raising his rates, they are changing their minds, the source added. (ANI)
