Madge and Guy Divorce

Ciccone M.L. v. Ritchie G.S. was all over in 54 seconds. Madonna and her husband, Guy Ritchie, director of the cockney gangster movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, agreed a divorce in London this morning. The “decree nisi” was granted for “irreconcilable differences” in a low-key affair, and the couple did not attend the verdict. Simon Bethel, from white-shoe law firm Mills & Reeve, said the pair may have requested to “circumvent the normal divorce process” to limit press attention. She will keep her fortune of about $450 million, he his of a mere $45 million. “The couple will share custody of their sons, eight-year-old Rocco and three-year-old adopted David, who will divide their time between New York with their mother and London with their father. Madonna’s 12-year-old daughter Lourdes, from a previous relationship, will live in America with her mother,” reports The Telegraph.
