Madonna and her film-director husband Guy Richie are getting a divorce, it’s final. While the couple has been happily married for 7 1/2 years, Madonna’s spokesperson says they’re ending the marriage… asap, and would most likely pray for finality before the 2008 Christmas season. Divorce lawyers though said that a quick decision regarding the divorce may not be “too quick” and “too soon”.
Madonna’s spokesperson Liz Rosenberg says the couple has agreed to divorce, and asks the media to respect their privacy. Rumors about their marriage started circulating with news about Madonna’s alleged romantic involvement with New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez was eventually divorced from his wife.
The couple has two children together – Rocco, 8 and David, 3 years of age.
Worthy to note too that Madonna turned 50 this year. This may be a sad end to half a century of success in the world of entertainment. My heart goes out to Madonna, I hope she can quickly recover from the possible pain of ending a long relationship with someone she once loved.
