Madonna files for divorce
According to the latest rumors, Madonna and Guy Ritchie are on the verge of divorce. It’s been reported recently that the couple’s marriage was fracturing, and now some sources report the stars have turned for help… to divorce lawyers.
The Times of London reports Madonna, 49, has enlisted the counsel of Fiona Shackleton, who represented Sir Paul McCartney in his high profile divorce from Heather Mills. Madonna’s rep is reticent to comment.
Meanwhile Ritchi, 39, is said to have sought matrimonial counsel from a lesser-known London legal firm, Forsters.
The couple started dating in 1999 after meeting each other at a dinner party hosted by mutual friends Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. They married in 2000 and are presently raising three children together, Madonna’s daughter from a previous relationship, Lourdes, 11, Rocco Ritchie, 7, and David Banda, 21 months, whom they adopted in Malawi in 2006.
It is believed that the couple did not have a prenup, according to The Times, while Madonna is worth an estimated $600 million. So if they really decide to divorce it’s gonna be something even more dramatic and high-profile than Macca’s divorce.
As for the reasons for divorce, the insiders say:
“Guy finds life as “Mr. Madonna” unbearable. He was embarrassed by Madonna’s flirtatious relationships with Stuart [dancer/producer Stuart Price] and Justin [Timberlake]. Now a new tour coming up, he knows Madonna is going to be surrounded by sycophants and hot young things who will only be too eager to stroke her fragile ego. He is not even objecting to Madonna’s plan to relocate from London to New York City, though he has no intention of following suit.”
Well, actually, it all looks pretty sad. The couple’s friends are reported to be really frustrated with the news. Nevertheless, in the May issue of U.K. Elle, Madonna denied martial strife.
Let’s hope divorce is just a rumor and nothing more. Let’s keep fingers crossed they’ll manage to settle the issue.
