And the family drama continues between Madonna and Guy Ritchie! As the exes prepare to face off in a nasty custody battle over their 15-year-old son Rocco, Guy has reportedly formed a united front with the teen, hiring a lawyer to help them face off against Madge in court. Now this could get ugly!
Looks like Madonna, 57, and Guy Ritchie, 47, are headed for a heated court battle over their teenage son, Rocco! The 15-year-old is reportedly refusing to return from his father’s home in London to the US to be with his mother, because he is sick of touring with her and just wants to have a normal home life. Now, a new report claims that Rocco is so set on staying with his father that two have teamed up to wage war against the “Material Girl,” going to far as to hire their own lawyer ahead of the nasty fight. Yikes!
Things are really not looking good for Madonna. One month after fleeing her world tour to live with Guy, Rocco has reportedly teamed up with his father to form a united front against the singer in what is shaping up to be a nasty custody battle, according to a new TMZ report. After spending time with his father, Rocco reportedly feels more strongly than ever that he wants to stay in London with Guy, who has already hired a lawyer to help fight on behalf of him and his son.
As we previously reported, Rocco was absolutely “miserable” while traveling around the world with Madonna on her “Rebel Heart” World Tour, where they were said to have spent most of time embroiled in nasty fights. “There were horrible, full-blown fights with screaming and crying,” a source close to the tour told TMZ. Things eventually got so bad that during the Stockholm leg of the tour that the 15-year-old was a no-show when the plane was ready to take off. Yikes!
The traveling and non-stop fighting really did Rocco in, so he reportedly told his father he just couldn’t handle it anymore and that he felt like Madonna was “too controlling” and didn’t “pay him any real attention.” Much like his dad, Rocco feels that home life in London is a far more stable environment for him, and when it comes right down to it, he just doesn’t want to live with Madonna anymore. In fact, things have apparently become so strained between mother and son that Rocco actually blocked her from his Instagram, while making a point to give Guy and his new wife, model Jacqui Ainsley, access to everything. Clearly, Rocco has chosen his side and it’s most definitely not with Madonna!
