Poor Madonna! The Queen of Pop wore her emotions on her sleeve as she choked back tears during the New Zealand stop of her Rebel Heart tour, speaking about her love for estranged teenaged son, Rocco Ritchie. Click through to watch!
Madonna, 57, just loves her son, Rocco Ritchie, 15, so much! During her concert in New Zealand on March 5, Madonna dedicated a song to her teenager, whom a judge ruled could continue living with his father, Guy Ritchie in London — away from Madonna. Her message to her son is just heartbreaking. Click through to watch the tearful moment!
Perched on a chair onstage in front of a sea of thousands of dedicated fans, Madonna’s voice broke as she spoke slowly and sadly about Rocco. “That is my son who I mentioned earlier,” she started. “He is actually 15, and its true, there is no love stronger than a mother for her son. And if I talk about him too much…I might cry.”
She had to take a deep breath and pause, composing herself for the rest of her emotional speech. The crowd roars for Madonna, trying to cheer her on as she struggles to get through what she’s trying to say. It’s heartwarming to see their support and dedication. “I’d like to dedicate this song to him. It’s a love song for a man, but I know that he’ll be one, one day. I hope he hears this somewhere and knows how much I miss him.”
She concludes her speech and goes into the Edith Piaf classic “La Vie en Rose.” We’re definitely crying right now. A Manhattan judge ruled on March 2 that Rocco would stay with his father in London in order to finish out the school year. Madonna had been trying desperately to get Rocco back to the United States after he abruptly left in December 2015 in the middle of her tour, to go live with his father and stepmother, Jacqui Ritchie. With her child out of her home for the foreseeable future, Madonna is struggling to get him to see just how much she truly wants him back home!
It seems that Madonna’s really making a habit out of opening up about deeply personal issues onstage. During her concert stop in the Philippines on February 24 that her Filipino personal trainer once slept with her boyfriend, so she fired her! TMI, Madonna! She’s really not shy about letting her fans know everything going on in her life.
