We refused to believe the rumors, but there's no denying it at this point.
Madonna and Guy Ritchie ARE getting a divorce!
The pair have been dogged by heightened speculation of a split for months, and now….
The Times of London, a very reputable newspaper - not a tabloid, is confirming that Madonna has indeed hired Paul McCartney's lawyer, Fiona Shackleton, to represent her in the divorce.
And, they also say that Guy has lawyered up too - a lesser-known Mayfair law firm, Forsters.
Yesterday Madonna’s spokesman refused to comment on the claims. But, one lawyer told The Times that the word in legal circles was that Madonna had gone to Ms. Shackleton after making an approach to another firm.
Madge and Guy have been living separate lives lately. The two have rarely been photographed together and, in fact, he's in London now while she's in NYC.
The pair are said to have NO prenup, so this divorce could get quite ugly!
