    Madonna's latest conquest, model Jesus Luz, is getting snubbed by his colleagues on the catwalk.

    The Material Girl's boy is taking some serious heat.

    Madonna's latest love interest Jesus Luz -- nearly 30 years her senior -- is reportedly catching flack from fellow male models for using the pop diva's fame to boost his own career.

    Luz, 22, a Brazilian catwalker, has been dating Madonna for several months, and his runway peers say he hasn't got the talent to back up his newfound fame.

    “Jesus had no career until Madonna arrived, and even if people are coming to see him because of her, he’s still going to take it,” a snippy backstage source at a fashion show last week told the New York Daily News.

    Models wouldn't even look in Luz's direction when he passed them backstage, the News reported.

    “None of the other models would talk to Jesus or even look at him. They were gossiping like catty girls about how they couldn’t wait for his career to fizzle out," a source said.

    Luz is reportedly getting thousands of dollars in free swag from fawning designers eager to join the model on Madonna's coattails -- he's in talks with Donatella Versace about a modeling campaign and received a work permit from Marc Jacobs that helped the Brazilian-born model stay in the country, according to the News.

    “He has a big, swollen head,” a Madonna source said.

    Luz is Madonna's latest fling since her split last year with director Guy Ritchie. Since the divorce, she's also been linked to New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez.
