Rocco Ritchie: I’m so glad I don’t live with Madonna

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Rocco Ritchie says he’s “so glad” he no longer lives with his mum Madonna. The 16-year-old son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie has taken to In­sta­gram in a now-deleted post that seem­ingly slams his 58year-old mother for be­ing em­bar­rass­ing. Rocco took to the pic­ture shar­ing web­site to post a video of his fam­ily - in­clud­ing Madonna and his adopted sib­lings David, 11, and Mercy, 10 tak­ing part in the Man­nequin Chal­lenge which re­quires the par­tic­i­pants to stay com­pletely still. Madonna was filmed with food hang­ing out of her mouth as she froze mid meal. The video footage was cap­tioned: “So glad I don’t live here any­more.” When fans of the ‘Like a Vir­gin’ singer came to her de­fense to tell the teenager it was just a bit of fun, Rocco sim­ply replied with a se­ries of laugh­ing emo­jis. Ac­cord­ing to The Sun, Rocco also re­port­edly blocked a num­ber of his mother’s fans on the site, pre­vent­ing them from ac­cess­ing his page. Rocco cur­rently lives in Lon­don with his fa­ther, where he was ar­rested last week for pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana. A source said at the time of his ar­rest: “Rocco has be­come a well­known fig­ure in the neigh­bor­hood and not for the right rea­sons. He’s been re­peat­edly seen act­ing sus­pi­ciously. “This in­ci­dent was the fi­nal straw. Lo­cal res­i­dents are fed up with him act­ing in this man­ner and called the po­lice.” Ac­cord­ing to sources, Rocco was sat on a wall with a friend when po­lice ap­proached them and the of­fi­cials no­ticed traces of cannabis on his clothes. A Scot­land Yard spokesman said: “A 16-year-old has been ar­rested for pos­ses­sion of cannabis. He was bailed and dealt with by Camden Bor­ough’s Youth Of­fend­ing Team.” A few days af­ter her son’s ar­rest, Madonna re­leased a state­ment ask­ing for “pri­vacy” whilst the mat­ter is dealt with. She said: “I love my son very much. I will do what­ever I can to give him the sup­port that he needs, and I ask that you re­spect our pri­vacy at this time.”
