‘Smit­ten’ Rocco in­tro­duces singer to dad

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

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...
