The custody fight over their son Rocco continues as the family waits for their upcoming court hearing. In case you forgot, the former flames having been going at it over their teenager’s living arrangements ever since Rocco fled his mom’s world tour for his filmmaker dad’s London pad.
Apparently, the biggest issue is that the English director doesn’t agree with Madonna’s “stern” parenting style. Is taking away a cellphone really SO strict?
Anywho, it’s reported that Guy’s own experience with dyslexia as a child makes him hyper sensitive to his kid’s well being. Yikes!
A source noted:
“He wants Rocco to have the confidence he lacked growing up and thinks Madonna’s stern parental style is counterproductive. The welfare of Rocco is Guy’s priority.”
Still, we can’t imagine an ugly custody battle is the best thing for the 15-year-old — especially since a judge did order Rocco to be home already.
Whereas, Madge is most upset that her youngster has reportedly missed school over his MIA status. It probably doesn’t help that Ritchie isn’t a fan of the private school Rocco currently attends in NYC. Well this is just a total mess!
Despite recent reports that this current legal battle is simply a power struggle between the Material Girl and the 47-year-old, an insider close to the British artist made it clear this situation is NOT about getting back at the Like A Virgin singer. The source added:
“Guy is convinced Madonna has long misrepresented him. Perhaps the best example of this is her subsequent sentiment that he liked to film her unflatteringly during their marriage in Swept Away and various videos.”
Hmm, very inneresting.
We’re definitely curious to see how this whole thing plays out in court on February 3. Stay tuned!
