Madonna, Guy Ritchie come to terms

The Myanmar Times - - The Pulse -

Pop diva Madonna has set­tled a bit­ter cus­tody dis­pute with for­mer hus­band Guy Ritchie, agree­ing for their teenage son to stay in Bri­tain with his film­maker fa­ther, a US court says.

“Their cus­tody case is re­solved,” Lu­cian Chalfen, spokesper­son for the New York court where the di­vorced cou­ple had fought for cus­tody of their son Rocco, told AFP last week.

The cus­tody agree­ment reached on Septem­ber 7 stip­u­lates that the 16-year-old is to re­main with his Bri­tish fa­ther, ac­cord­ing to US me­dia re­ports cit­ing Ritchie’s lawyer, Peter Bron­stein. Bron­stein was not im­me­di­ately avail­able to com­ment. Madonna, who wanted her son to live with her in the United States, re­acted enig­mat­i­cally on so­cial me­dia. The pop star posted a photo of her­self on In­sta­gram wear­ing a black hoodie with the word “bitch” scrawled across it in red.

Madonna and Ritchie had bat­tled for months for cus­tody of Rocco in US and Bri­tish courts. Judges heard that Rocco re­mained in Lon­don with his fa­ther af­ter a visit in De­cem­ber last year. Madonna wanted the teen to re­turn to live with her in the state of New York.

The celebrity cou­ple di­vorced in 2008 af­ter eight years of mar­riage. Madonna aired her feel­ings about the painful end to their re­la­tion in her al­bum MDNA, re­leased in March 2012.

The two also have a 10-year-old adopted son, David Banda.
