Get ready for some serious family drama!
Madonna and Guy Ritchie are gearing up to go head to head over custody of their 15-year-old son Rocco Ritchie. In case you forgot, the celebuspawn ran away from the Material Girl's Rebel Heart tour at the end of last year in favor of his filmmaker pappa's London pad after allegedly getting into heated arguments with the pop icon. Yikes!
Not surprisingly, the estrangement has truly upset the Like A Virgin singer as she is NOT a fan of her ex's parenting style.

While the A-lister's initial strategy to bring the teen home was to trash talk Guy's parenting techniques and to force him home via a judge's order, she's realizing that may not work as the youngster is so OVER his mom's strict ways. Merp!
It has since been reported that Madge is switching gears as she is trying a more mellow approach — oh, and playing a serious guilt trip by constantly expressing her undying love on Instagram. Here's hoping this plan will work, because we don't think Madonna will be able to handle it if Rocco ends up permanently staying with his dad.
One source added:
"She always has to be right. It's her nature. She and Guy have disagreed on every [child rearing] decision they talk about, and it's made her feel like he's a bad parent."
Oh boy! We guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens at their family court hearing.
