Reunited and it feels so good! For the first time since Madonna’s vicious custody battle with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, the superstar was spotted building bridges with her teenage son, Rocco. And while their scarred relationship won’t heal overnight, their fun, London adventure was certainly an important step for the pair.
Rocco Ritchie, 15, finally ended his estrangement with his mother, Madonna, 57, after nearly five months when he agreed to go on a movie date with the singer followed by a sleepover at her house. The sweet date night was a MAJOR first step for the two who have had a harrowing past couple of months. From calling his mother expletives on social media to refusing to live with her, it seems like Rocco may now be willing to begin mending his strained relationship with Madonna.
After living apart for months when Rocco left his mother’s tour to live with his father, Guy Ritchie, 47, in London, he finally reunited with his superstar mom on April 11. And it seems as if the pair definitely made up for lost time! Rocco was seen beaming ear-to-ear as Madonna treated the teen to a movie at Electric Cinema in the Notting Hill area. They saw Batman V Superman, according to the Daily Mail, and both Madonna and Rocco looked extremely happy to finally be bonding again!
But not only did the duo enjoy a movie, they also headed back to Madonna’s pad together, no doubt wrapping up a fun, memorable night. We love how Rocco and Madonna have totally seemed to mend their less-than-stellar relationship. Spending an entire evening together is, after all, a surefire way to start setting things right again — and it looks like it’s working!
Madonna even got dolled up for the occasion, busting out her leather, fingerless gloves and a gorgeous fur stole by Louis Vuitton. And while Madonna always looks on point, it is obvious that she put extra special effort into her ensemble that night, which only goes to show how important the evening was for her. It’s absolutely heartwarming that she finally was able to spend some much needed time with her boy.
For those in need of a refresher, Madonna allegedly hadn’t seen Rocco since Christmas due to the harrowing divorce and custody battle with her ex. Madonna even reportedly hired a private investigator to keep tabs on her son while he was out of her care. Wow, there’s definitely no stopping this lioness mother when it comes to protecting and seeing her child!
Are you happy for Madonna that she got to see her son, HollywoodLifers? Sound off!
