Uh oh, Rocco! Madonna’s teenage son, Rocco Ritchie, was arrested for possession of cannabis in London after neighbors called the cops on him! Get the full scoop on the 16-year-old’s arrest right after the jump!
Madonna‘s 16-year-old son Rocco Ritchie, 16, was arrested in London for possession of cannabis on Sept. 28 after neighbors near his Primrose Hill home reportedly called the police on him. The teenager, who is the son of both the singer and Guy Ritchie, was caught “smoking or doing drugs” near his house. Oh no! Mom and dad must not be happy about this.
Rocco was allegedly seen throwing something aside when authorities approached him in Steeles Mews North, Camden, according to the Daily Mail. The police saw traces of marijuana on Rocco’s clothes, so they ended up searching him and found a small amount of pot on him. After that he was arrested and transported to a London police station and later let out on bail. Looks like Rocco is having a rough time right about now, but he has, after all, been dealing with some serious family issues.
Earlier this year Guy and the “Like A Virgin” singer got in a vicious custody battle over Rocco, and Rocco was on his father’s side. The teen had a serious falling out with his mother back in December 2015 when he refused to go on her Rebel Hearts tour with her. Madonna was not about that and demand legal custody of him in both the US and the UK.
But Guy fought her and in September they reached an agreement that Rocco would live in London, though he would visit Madonna regularly. We hope that Rocco and his mother and father are doing okay after his arrest.
