Marc Jacobs Used His Influence For Madonna's Lover?

We're all scratching our heads over Madonna's Brazillian lover Jesus Luz; Apparently designer Marc Jacobs had something to do with Luz's immigration issues. Here are the confusing details:
According to the New York Post, Marc Jacobs had written a letter to the U.S. immigration authorities, supporting Luz's application for a work visa that would allow him to remain in the country legally, and continue seeing Madonna. Jacobs had apparently wrote that Luz was "highly talented" and "a necessity to the label. Of course, a client brand taking extra effort in the foreign model's immigration problems isn't unusual, if a business relationship does exist between the model and the brand.
At the time, Madonna's rep denied the singer had asked her designer friend to pull any strings. Then again, this is the same woman who said in 2006 that Madonna wasn't adopting a Malawian baby, and in 2008 that Madonna and Guy Ritchie had no plans to divorce. Marc Jacobs' own PR representative also denied reports of Jacobs writing any such letter.
That was on Monday. On Wednesday, at a benefit for Parsons, Jacobs gave two conflicting quotes on the subject to two different media outlets. When asked by the New York Daily News, he admitted that Madonna had asked him to write a letter in support of Luz's visa application, saying it was a favour for a friend. "I'd do anything to help a friend," he said. "It's no big deal - I didn't know that anybody even knew about it. Jesus is the sweetest guy. I hope he and Madonna are happy." The same night however, when New York magazine asked Jacobs to clarity his working relationship with Luz, Jacobs replied there was none. "Why is everyone asking me about him?" the designer protested, "He's not modelling for me. I don't do men's wear."
So is the Brazilian male model so crucial to Jacobs' label that the designer simply had to do his best to get Luz's immigration situation regularized? Or is Luz just a "sweet guy" who is absolutely irrelevant to Marc Jacobs business? Did Jacobs do something more serious than lie to the media - let alone lie to te INS?
