Divorce Announced for Madonna and Guy Ritchie
In Hollywood divorce news, Madonna and her husband of seven and a half years, Guy Ritchie, have announced they are beginning divorce proceedings. Madonna’s publicist e-mailed a statement (co-signed by Ritchie’s rep) to the Associated Press on October 15, confirming the news. The joint-statement reads:
“Madonna and Guy Ritchie have agreed to divorce after seven and a half years of marriage, their representatives confirmed today,” Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s U.S. representative, said in the joint statement to AP. “They have both requested that the media maintain respect for their family at this difficult time. A final settlement has not been agreed upon yet.”
Ritchie and Madonna, who live in London, reportedly want to create a mutual postnuptial agreement before going to court. Their assets include homes in New York, Los Angeles, and London along with a 1,200-acre estate in Wiltshire, England. Their aggregate estate is alleged to be worth about $525 million U.S., with $35 million of that belonging to Ritchie.
Not many divorces require press releases and involve distributing millions of dollars in assets, but it does not make them any less difficult to deal with.
