Official: Madonna & Guy Ritchie To Divorce

After months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Pop superstar Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie are to divorce, according to Madonna’s spokeswoman. Check out the report via Billboard below:

A statement e-mailed to the Associated Press from spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg says the couple has agreed to divorce, and asks the media to respect their privacy.

The statement, co-signed by Ritchie’s representative, says the couple had not agreed to a settlement.

Madonna and Ritchie married in December 2000 at a Scottish castle. The couple have two children: Rocco, 8, and David Banda, 3, who was adopted from Malawi in 2006. Madonna also has a 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from her relationship with personal trainer Carlos Leon.

The couple are reportedly worth some $525 million, the bulk of that belonging to Madonna. Ritchie has an estimated $35 million fortune. They own homes in London, Los Angeles and New York, and a 1,200-acre retreat in Wiltshire, England.

Unfortunately, this is hardly surprising as there have been murmerings about a separation for a while now. It’s a shame, ‘industry’ relationships seem like an impossiblity.

Any thoughts?

    The sad part is that there is no pre-nup. She is open to a huge divorce settlement. When Americans get married in the in Europe, for whatever reason, they do not honor our prenups. I’m sure someone had to have advised her of this before the wedding and she still went through with the nuptials outside of the United States borders . . . but be sure that her people are all of this. Damn shame, he will probably walk away with at least 50 to 100 million. Gots to be more careful
