When hasn’t there been speculation that Madonna‘s marriage to Guy Ritchie has been on the rocks. The two are extremely outspoken, and their relationship can be quite “dynamic” at times. At this point, all the breakup talk is just speculation.
Open speculation in media circles is that “the couple has split, but they’re keeping it quiet.”
Another longtime Madonna insider tells me: “She has been spending very little time with him. She is obsessed with everything related to her career at this point. The album ["Confessions on a Dance Floor"] is a hit, and that is all she seems to care about these days.
Madonna’s rep, Liz Rosenberg, says all has been well on the video set for her new single, “Sorry.” “Guy came to the set to visit, once with the children [Rocco and Lourdes] and once without,” she said. “Mr. and Mrs. Ritchie seemed perfectly comfortable and adoring of each other. … My sense is that they’re quite a happy, content couple.”
Madonna herself recently surprised fans by speaking of how she and Ritchie nearly broke up. “I got married for all the wrong reasons,” she admitted in a documentary last October. “My husband did not turn out to be everything I had imagined him to be.” Madonna admitted, “There is no such thing as the perfect soul mate.” But she said: “I thank God every day that I married a man who makes me think. That is my definition of true love.”
I’m sure that’s exactly how Britney Spears feels about Kevin Federline.
