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.

As we previously reported, the Material Girl's teenage son Rocco Ritchie ran away to live with his father in London at the end of last year and it's turned into quite the custody battle.
Despite the fact that both a judge and Madonna have told the 15-year-old he needs to return home to NYC, the youngster is resolved to stay in the U.K. In fact, the family has a court hearing to make a final decision on whether or not Rocco has to return living with Madge.
Awkward. So, it should be no surprise that this estrangement with her son has hit the Like A Virgin singer pretty hard.
