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?

When will this custody drama end??
For her latest social media update, she posted:
This is so sad!
Still, it seems as though Madge is truly eager to patch things up with the 15-year-old as she recently shared a touching pic on Instagram of Rocco when he was just a baby. The Material Girl shared:
Let's just say there have been less heartbreaking #tbt's.
As custody proceedings continue, Madonna is remembering the good times with her son Rocco.
If you need a reminder, the 57-year-old singer and her ex Guy Ritchie have been locked in a legal battle after their teenage son ditched his mom during her world tour so he could stay with his dad in London.
Since, the Queen of Pop has reportedly hired a private investigator to determine if the director is a bad influence on their child.
Next to a throwback snap of herself holding a young Rocco in her lap with her other son David and daughter Lourdes by her sides, the Like A Prayer songstress penned:
"Days of innocence. In Malawi. How I miss this time. 😔💘🙏🏻. ❤️#rebelhearts"
Hopefully this will all be sorted out soon!!

It keeps getting uglier!
Well now the situation is getting a bit sneakier as TMZ has learned that the Material Girl has hired a private investigator to look into Ritchie's parenting skills in London.
Sources close to Madge say that the 57-year-old believes
Madonna is NOT going to be happy about this.
Over the weekend, the Material Girl's son Rocco Ritchie was reportedly photographed smoking with his friends while under his father Guy Ritchie's guardianship. Yikes!
According to The Sun, the 15-year-old was puffing on a "suspicious-looking" cigarette while hanging out in a skate park with his pals. Casual.
A source told the paper:
It looks like we just have to wait to find out if Rocco Ritchie will continue living with his famous father in London, or if he will return stateside to stay with his musical momma!
Apparently, the courtroom meeting has been postponed for a month.
While no reason has been given for bushing back the court date, it seems as though the pop princess' ex had already known the hearing was rescheduled.
That's because he was spotted out and about in London the same day he was initially supposed to be appearing before a judge.
While we're sad that the saga has to continue for at least another month, we hope that the hearing eventually rules in the favor of whatever is best for Rocco.
