2005 horse fall doomed Madonnas marriageOctober 17th, 2008 - 1:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 17 (ANI): Madonnas marriage was doomed when Guy Ritchie abandoned her emotionally after she fell off a horse in 2005 and ended up with multiple fractures, pals have revealed.
Ritchies lack of support and cruelty while she was recuperating from the life threatening accident, made the love starved Queen of Pop to question his love.
From the moment Madonna fell from that horse, their marriage was doomed, The Sun quoted a close family friend as saying.
The pal added: If you can pinpoint an exact event or incident which spelled the death knell for them as a couple, Madonnas horse-riding accident was it. Every other row the couple had following that boiled down to what happened that summer.
The accident acted as a trigger to constant fights, said the pal, and things worsened so much that Madge once snapped at Guy, saying: Did you ever actually love me?
The family friend said: Madonna was in a huge amount of pain and expected Guy to drop everything to be at her bedside.
In her mind that is what every husband should do to support his wife when she has been through a traumatic, possibly life-threatening, experience. But Guy approached the whole thing in what she now calls, A very British way.
Instead of smothering her with sympathy he said, Come on darling, youre a tough bird. Youll be back on the horse in no time.
Guys approach was that a few broken bones is no big deal and that there was no point in making a drama out of a crisis.
But in Madonnas mind, she could have been killed, and she wanted the full works and to be lavished with love and attention.
She was so furious at what she saw as Guys lack of support and cruelty that she told him she was wrong to marry him as he couldnt possibly be her soulmate.
And the last straw came when Madonnas rep recently confirmed the news of the couples split. (ANI)
