Madonna just debuted her single with Justin Timberlake over the weekend on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and is all muscular and ready to begin promotion for her new album, Hard Candy. And it might be a good thing that she’s got a touring schedule on the horizon because rumor has it, things aren’t going so great between Madge and her hubby, Guy Ritchie.
A source close to the couple has revealed to News of the World that the two have decided to go their separate ways, with Madonna planning a move to New York City with the children and Guy staying in London. With both of them focused on their careers, they’ve gradually had less and less time for one another. According to the source, “Madonna and Guy are over. It’s all very amicable. They’ve just fallen out of love with each other.”
It sounds as if the split, which the couple don’t want to formally announce for another eighteen months, will be on “the best of terms.” The source said of a custody arrangement, “Guy will get as much access as he wants because there hasn’t been a massive falling-out.”
It looks like this has the potential to be a very well-behaved divorce and I’m happy for them for that at the very least. However, I’m not going to lie and have to say that I wish these two would face-off in court, so that Guy could gain custody of Madonna’s fake British accent.
