Madonna Sends a Christmas Message to Her Son, Rocco Ritchie
In the midst of her ongoing battle with ex-husband, film director Guy Ritchie, for the custody of their teen, Madonna sends a Christmas message to her son, Rocco Ritchie.
In her Instagram account, the pop superstar posted a photo of herself with son Rocco, 15 and captioned it “Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life!”
This Instagram post of the pop diva is followed by other photos of Rocco’s brothers and sister, Lourdes, 19, David Banda, 10, and Mercy James, 9, as they celebrate the holiday season.
The emotional message of Madonna for her son Rocco was posted at a time when mother and son are having a difficult time.
Rocco went to visit his director dad, Guy Ritchie in London. After Rocco expressed his desire to stay in London with his dad, Madonna went to court on Wednesday to demand the return of her son to New York.
During the hearing, Rocco’s lawyer Eric Buckley said, “He has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York”.
Fortunately for Madonna, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan released a decision in favor of the pop superstar. She told the court, “I’m directing the child to be returned to New York. If he wants to stay with his father, he must return to his mother.”
Rocco Ritchie is now ordered by the court to return to New York as school starts following the Christmas break.
No reason has been given as to why Rocco wanted to stay in London with Guy Ritchie instead of Madonna. In the past few months, Rocco has been travelling with the pop superstar for the world tour of her concert entitled “Rebel Heart”.
