‘Smitten’ Rocco introduces singer to dad
ROCCO Ritchie may have found himself a leading lady – and she has passed an audition with his filmmaker dad.
The 17-year-old, Madonna’s son with Lock, Stock director Guy Ritchie, is said to have fallen for up-and-coming singer Chantelle Lee.
The 16-year-old, from North London, is being prepped for superstardom by music bosses.
Some are hailing her as the next Taylor Swift and she has even impressed rap icon Jay Z.
But while the starlet has been vetted by Guy, smitten Rocco hasn’t got round to telling his mum – whose hits include Who’s That Girl? – about her.
A source tells me: “Rocco and Chantelle have been hanging out a lot, they are part of a big group of friends and they have gotten a lot closer in recent weeks.
“Rocco is smitten and has even introduced Chantelle to his dad. It’s early days though and he’s managed to avoid an awkward meeting with his mum.” Rocco recently split from model Kim Turnbull and fell for Chantelle, 16, after they were introduced by mutual pals. Madge will be pleased that Rocco is dating someone in the music business but she might be miffed about being the last to know about it. Rocco has clashed with his superstar mum, 59, several times and moved in with Guy, 49, in London permanently when he won a custody battle last year. Last year, he commented on a video Madonna had posted to Instagram of her and two of her adopted kids doing the mannequin challenge, saying: “So glad I don’t live there any more.” They have since patched up their relationship and there is talk of Rocco going to photography school in New York, where Madonna is based. Maybe just a short course though...
