New book says Madonna’s marriage to Ritchie almost overJuly 5th, 2008 - 2:26 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 5 (IANS) A new book on Madonna by her brother Christopher Ciconne says the pop star’s marriage to British director Guy Ritchie is on the rocks and the couple are drifting apart due to regular fights. The book “Life With My Sister Madonna” says the seven-year marriage has survived till now only because of a rabbi who visits them and acts as a mediator, reports thesun.co.uk.
The main reason for the strain in the marriage seems to be that Madonna wants to return to New York after having lived in Britain since her marriage to Ritchie. However, Ritchie thinks Britain is a better place for their children.
A source said: “The book is a warts-and-all account. Chris was there for all the key moments in Madonna’s life. There is no-one better placed to tell the real story behind Madonna’s public image.”
Madonna’s spokeswoman said: “Madonna has not cooperated with any biography about herself.”
