Guy Ritchie wept when he saw the photo of Rocco in a Yankees shirt

In case you haven’t heard, Madonna is divorcing Guy Ritchie, her husband of over seven years. One of the many issues contributing to the divorce is Madonna’s alleged affair with New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. While there’s no doubt the demise of the marriage started long before Madonna’s late night “meetings” with A-Rod, there’s no way it’s not a sore spot for Ritchie.

Madonna lives for attention, it sustains her sense of self-worth. She didn’t argue with Warren Beatty in Truth or Dare when he said that she doesn’t want to live off camera and that there’s nothing she wants to say if she’s not being filmed. It’s the driving force in her life, and it doesn’t matter whom she hurts, or how badly she hurts them. So, in the midst of a divorce that few believe has more important things at stake to Guy Ritchie than his kids, Madonna decided to hit him where it would hurt the most. Rocco Ritchie was photgraphed dressed in a New York Yankees shirt on Monday, and the the blatant use of his son to get to him drove the otherwise macho Guy to tears.

“He’s actually been crying over it,” says the source on the set of Ritchie’s upcoming drama Sherlock Holmes. “He’s in a terrible state but is doing his best to be on form at work.”

The insider tells Us Ritchie “cannot believe” Madonna would let their son wear the shirt, given the fact that her close relationship with the slugger played a role in their contentious divorce.

“Madonna has hit the wrong button,” adds the insider. “He won’t sink to her level, but she better watch out because it seems he has a lot on her.”

It doesn’t even matter if, in his innocence, that was the shirt Rocco wanted to wear that day. A decent woman would have made sure it didn’t happen. But Madonna is proving anything but decent in this unfortunate situation, doing things daily to get herself in the papers with ugly words and actions. Madonna put the little guy in that shirt and then made sure he was somewhere where there was a camera. There’s very little someone can do in a divorce that’s more dispicable than using the children to hurt the other party.

I’m starting to worry about those kids because I’m wondering how low Madonna is willing to go in this and how much further she plans to take things. She’s not scoring any public points, but maybe this is the new incarnation of Madonna shocking the world.

    Heather Mills, meet Madonna, the new pariah.

  2. fabulous says:

    Its all ‘team guy’ in the UK – partly because he’s one of ours, and partly because the things that are attributed to Guy seem totally believable – ‘gristle’ anyone? But mostly because Madge is being so undignified. And its not because of the stiff upper lip thing either – its because of the kids.
    She’s certainly not doing herself any favours…

  3. geronimo says:

    They really need to stop. Now. Although the details are delicious and I can’t wait to hear the next instalment. :twisted:

  4. vdantev says:

    What I’m thinking of rhymes with “true bucking stunt”.

  5. BamaGuy says:

    I have nothing but disdain for selfish egotistical Madonna, and nothing but sympathy for Guy who deserves better than this.

    It is terrible that Madonna is such a thoughtless person. You know she will use Rocco as a pawn. Madonna is the kind of vindictive person who will try to manipulate Rocco and kill his love for his father. Sad, sad, sad.

  6. xiaoecho says:

    gg…..compared to Madonna, Heather Mill’s public vilification was a cakewalk

    as for the Guy weeping thing : I say bollocks….a press beat up

  7. Leandra says:

    No that’s just a trumped up publicity story…don’t believe it. I think Madonna will be more than fair with Guy having access to the children. Look at Lourdes – Madonna has always wanted her to have a relationship with her dad in New York.

  8. flourpot says:

    wow, that’s a nasty thing to do. way to involve your kid for your own egotistical self worth, Madonna, you bitch.

  9. Nancy says:

    It is called parental alienation syndrome. Sad

  10. stellapurdy says:

    Where are the pictures?

  11. Kaiser says:

    Leandra, the photos of Rocco wearing the shirt are at

    Madonna is a sick, twisted hussy. From now on, let’s just call her ZOMG GRISTLE, okay girls?

  12. sal says:

    Oh my gosh, are u all getting so mad over a shirt? Its just a shirt people. Guy is still and will forever be his father and a dumb shirt is not gonna change that. Plus I think I have seen him wear it even before they announced their divorce. ( by the way,I dont like madonna)

  13. flourpot says:

    “Its just a shirt people.”

    true, it’s just a shirt. but she’s been (seemingly rightly) accused of fucking around on her husband with a yankees player. which goes beyond simple fashion into the land of “the press will photograph my kid in this and boy, wont it piss off Guy” land which, i’ll reiterate, is just nasty.

  14. Linda says:

    You would think Madonna would be smarter – PR wise this is going to kill her. She will come off looking worse then Heather Mills (and I didn’t think that was possible).

    I hope Guy takes her for every last penny and fights for custody – I would hate to think of those kids under Madonna’s complete control.

  15. Lisa says:

    This whole divorce thing is beyond stupid.

  16. heehee says:

    Not uncommon or atypical behavior. Shes just famous at the time that shes doing it, whereas a large portion of like– what, 50-60% of Americans (the divorce statistics) act up in the same hurtful ways during and after a divorce but arent in the tabloids for it… I wondered about it when I frst heard of the breakup; what was her logic?
    Stay in a dead marriage for a few more years and let your kids watch it, then cheat and have it become national headlines for your kids to read and be taunted about, THEN divorce and use the kids themselves as pawns and weapons– no way is this gonna be good for them at all. So much trauma!!!

  17. Carrie says:

    I agree the weeping is just press hyperbole. And yeah, I know Madge is an uber-bitch but apparently he’s a bit of a rhymes-with-stunt himself.

  18. Murmur says:

    “He’s actually been crying over it”

    I find that piece of it hard to swallow. Ritchie doesn’t seem like the type to break down in tears on the set of his new movie.

  19. morgs says:

    She acts like a right berk sometimes. In all fairness though, I’m sure he can give as good as he gets.

  20. geronimo says:

    Well he’s under a huge amount of pressure and stress, everyone’s got their breaking point and nothing is more likely to trigger his emotions more that the thought of losing his kids. So I CAN see it all becoming too much for him.

  21. Ron says:

    Come on! It’s hard to get Guy Ritchie to smile at a Chris Rock show, let alone to get him to weep. CRAP.

  22. Kaiser says:

    G, I can see Guy “weeping” into the arms of a new, hot young lover. Like the wonk-eyed Kelly, perchance?

  23. C says:

    if this story is indeed true, she’s beginning to look more and more like denise richards every day.

  24. JaundiceMachine says:

    Even if Guy’s alleged comments (fat, ugly, old, wrinkled, grisly ect) were carefully leaked to hit Madge in square in her freakish six-pack, using the kids like that is way below the belt. It’s beyond detestable.

    I really see way too much of Madge’s insecurities projected in those comments, anyway, and given her penchant for media manipulation I have no doubt her camp is doing 85-95% of cleverly crafted leaking to garner sympathy and attention.

    I mean, it’s been a whole three years since Madonna any sort of relevancy. What better way to remind the world of the Material Girl than through an ugly spectacle in which the “victim” becomes the “victor”?

  25. C says:

    just saw the picture of Rocco in the shirt.. it’s true. disgusting.

  26. Ter says:

    Poor Madge, she’s just a bundle of hyperbole and gristle. Whether this is pure PR or downright dirty shenanigans by Madonna the kids are in for a bumpy ride. Is it too late to expect Madge to move beyond her arrested developmental stage, for the sake of the kids??? PLEASE Stow it Madge, your kids will reap the rewards.

  27. Monalicious says:

    Sorry bitch, dragging her young son into her affair!! A perfect case of Narsasistic Personallity disorder. Those kids are going to go thru Hell because it’s ALL ABOUT MADONNA!!!!

  28. Pipps66 says:

    There is a cold place in hell reserved for parents who put their children in the middle of their divorce. This bitch is not marriage material. Do us a favor, STAY SINGLE FROM NOW ON.
