Madonna is staying positive as things heat up in her custody battle with Guy Ritchie over their son, Rocco. The singer is focusing on her two jobs — as a singer and as a mother — and shared an empowering message for all working moms. Read it here!
If Madonna can do it, so can we! The 57-year-old has raised four kids while being one of the biggest stars in the world, and she wants other working mothers to know they can balance it all, too. It’s an especially inspiring message considering she’s currently fighting for her 15-year-old son in an explosive custody battle!
“It’s possible to be an entertainer and a good mother!!!” she wrote alongside what looks like a throwback photo of her and her four kids. “Too bad we don’t live in a society where many encourage strong independent single working moms. The next great Frontier!” Amen, girl!
Unfortunately, right now, on top of her work and kids, Madge is dealing with another big obstacle: Trying to win custody of her son, Rocco Ritchie, from ex, Guy Ritchie. The 15-year-old is currently staying with his dad in London, after he refused to come back to the States when he was supposed to for the holidays.
The teenager was reportedly “miserable” when he joined his mom on tour, and wanted to live a more “normal” life, which is why he decided to shack up with his dad across the pond. “There were horrible, blown-out fights with screaming and crying,” TMZ reported of the mother-son duo. ” Yikes!
Madonna has remained positive throughout all of this, sharing sweet photos with her son on social media, but Rocco is not giving in. He even blocked his mom on Instagram! And now that the 15-year-old has spent a lot of quality time with his dad, he’s reportedly more convinced than ever that that’s where he belongs, and the father-son team has united and hired a lawyer to fight their battle. Sigh!
