Madonna loses custody war of son with ex-hubby Ritchie

Pop diva Madonna has settled a nasty custody dispute with former husband Guy Ritchie, agreeing for their teenage son to stay in Britain with his father.

“Their custody case is resolved,” Lucian Chalfen, spokesman for the New York court where the divorced couple had fought for custody of their son Rocco, told reporters.



The custody agreement reached last week requires that the 16-year-old is to remain with his British father. While Madonna, who wanted her son to live with her in the United States, reacted enigmatically on social media. The pop star posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a black hoodie with the word “b****” scrawled across it in red.

The celebrity couple divorced in 2008 after eight years of marriage. Madonna aired her feelings about the painful end to their relationship in her album “MDNA”, released in March 2012.

The two also have a 10-year-old adopted son, David Banda.
