Man Who Leaked Madonna Song Arrested in Spain (Report)
A 31-year-old, described as a "big Madonna fan," has been charged with leaking a demo of her single "Give Me All Your Love" in November.
Madonna may yet get to the bottom of who leaked a demo of her single "Give Me All Your Love" in November, as Spanish authorities reportedly arrested a 31-year-old man in Zaragoza, Spain, on Wednesday and charged him with the crime.
The man, described by police as a "big Madonna fan," was identified only by the initials J.R.M. and was released after being charged with the crime, the police said in a statement.
"Give Me All Your Love" was to be part of Madonna's first new album since 2008's Hard Candy, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart upon its release that May. The singer, who is scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show on Feb. 5, signed to Interscope Records last week, reportedly on a three-album deal.
After the song leaked, Madonna and her manager Guy Oseary were upset, with Oseary taking to Twitter to vent his frustrations.
According to Reuters, which first reported the arrest, lawyers for the singer tracked the leak to Spain, where the Spanish police found recordings of the leaked track in the man's possession.
Madonna recently released another new track, "Masterpiece," which she had written for the movie W.E. The film is her directorial debut and was recently nominated for two Golden Globes, for best original score and best original song for "Masterpiece."
