Madonna and Guy Ritchie confirm their divorce

Post by Baz on Wed Oct 15, 2008 3:40 am







Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie are to announce their divorce imminently, it has been reported in today's Sun. The newspaper claims the couple are preparing a statement to confirm their eight-year marriage is over.

The news follows months of speculation about the state of their relationship. In July, Ritchie told an interviewer "My marriage is fine as far as I'm aware of". The couple married in 2000 and have one son together, Rocco, as well as recently adopted son David, who is Malawian. Madonna has a daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship.

At the singer's 50th birthday celebrations in August, Ritchie praised his wife, saying: "I love her so much." The previous month, their publicist released a statement declaring their marriage did not need saving after reports continued to suggest that they were on the brink of divorce.

Madonna is currently in the middle of her Sticky and Sweet tour to promote her album Hard Candy. Though the Sun speculates on the causes of the rift and quotes numerous sources allegedly close to the couple, Madonna and Guy Ritchie have yet to confirm or deny the report themselves.

Pop star Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie are to divorce after nearly eight years of marriage, their PR representatives have confirmed.

The pair had not agreed to a settlement and asked the media to respect their privacy, the announcement added.

It followed several months of speculation that the couple's relationship was in trouble.

In July, Madonna's publicist denied the pair were planning to divorce, saying their marriage did not "need saving".

The pair appeared together at last month's premiere of Ritchie's RocknRolla in London, walking arm-in-arm and posing for photographs in London's Leicester Square.

Ritchie, 40, had rebutted suggestions his marriage was over with a public show of support at Madonna's 50th birthday party in August and also told a US magazine in July the marriage was "fine".

The statement issued on Wednesday read: "Madonna and Guy Ritchie have agreed to divorce after seven and a half years of marriage, their representatives confirmed today.

"They have both requested that the media maintain respect for their family at this difficult time.

"A final settlement has not been agreed upon yet."

Madonna is due to play a concert in Boston later as part of her Sticky and Sweet tour.

She and Ritchie married in December 2000 at Skibo Castle in the Scottish Highlands and have two sons together - seven-year-old Rocco and David Banda, whose adoption from Malawi was approved in May.

The singer also has a 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from an earlier relationship.

In that other report it says he is after a chunk of her fortune and apparently she has offered him a multi million pound estate.

"Even though there is no pre-nup and Ritchie stands to win up to $150 million or more in divorce court, the filmmaker doesn't want any of it. Not a single cent.

Or so he'd like us to believe!

Despite the silent treatment, a friend of Ritchie's predicts a peaceful divorce, as Madonna has already offered Ritchie ownership of a $24 million country estate."

I read he already has a personal fortune of over 30 million, why would he want more? mind you, films he makes must cost a bob or two.
