Madonna Breaks Down On Stage Discussing Relationship With Son Rocco: 'If I Talk About Him Too Much, I'm Going To Cry'
The superstar was in Auckland, New Zealand on Friday for her Rebel Heart World Tour, and at one point, she became shaken and upset over the issues surrounding her son Rocco Ritchie.
Unfortunately, custody hasn't really been going her way thus far, either.
At the concert, during a moment between songs, Madonna told the crowd:
As we reported, the 15-year-old fled his mother's Rebel Heart tour at the end of last year to his filmmaker dad's residence in London after seriously getting into it with the pop icon. Merp!
Since then, Madge has been attempting to get her youngster to return home by appealing to his emotions on social media and calling out her former flame's parenting style. Unfortunately, a judge has since ruled in favor of Rocco's desire to stay in the U.K. away from his "strict" mother.
So no wonder the Material Girl posted:
Madonna & Guy Ritchie Urged By Judge To Come Up With A Resolution Over Custody Of Their Son Rocco! Get All The Deets On Their Hearing!
As you probably know, the pop diva is heartbroken over the estrangement of her son Rocco after he ran away to England to live with his father.
Well, Madge and Guy have been fighting over each other's parenting styles, and on Wednesday, finally called into court in New York for their custody hearing.
For now, a judge isn't ordering Rocco to come back home to live with his mother.
In fact, the Supreme Court Justice seemed happy with the 15-year-old's enrollment in a London school, and doesn't want to make him leave.
As for the feuding parents though, they've got a real problem. According to the judge, the "inability of the parents to come up with a solution" is really harming their son, despite Rocco's attorney revealing he's stressed over the uncertainty of the custody battle.
If Madonna and Guy can't come up with a solution in the best interest of their son, a judge will have to step in.
Hopefully it won't come to that!

Madonna & Guy Ritchie Gear Up To Go To War Over Custody Of Son Rocco — Will The Singer's New Emotional Strategy Work?
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
Madonna isn't giving up on Rocco Ritchie just yet!
According to sources, Madge is opting for a more gentle approach to entice her estranged son to leave London and father Guy Ritchie behind for New York. Considering the singer was all set to lawyer up, this is a BIG change.
Sources say the teenager has begun to reach out to his momma, a major development since the two weren't talking when the sh*t first hit the fan back in December. Ever the smart woman, the singer is taking advantage of this break in the ice to talk reason into Ritchie.
A friend said of the improving situation:
"Madonna and Rocco have been talking. They are trying to mediate themselves."
Sounds promising! The last thing the 15-year-old needs is an ugly court battle!
The confidante also went on to mention that Madonna is NOT on speaking terms with Guy despite her positive turnaround with Rocco.
As for why R.R. is so receptive at the moment, insiders claim the icon has vowed to make a change in her parenting style:
"Guy is very relaxed, while Madonna is strict and regimented. She is saying things will be different."
Well, we'll see if the musician keeps her word… there's no time better than the present to have a fresh start.
Do YOU believe Madonna will change her "strict" ways?
