Madonna and husband, Guy Ritchie, are reportedly discussing a separation after being married 7 years.
Their relationship has been strained for quite some time, with both living in separate quarters in their estate London mansion. Now it seems as if the rumors are true, and they are heading towards divorce.
The couple’s friend stated that a split was inevitable. And said, “They’re obviously sad but they’re dealing with it like grown-ups. Things have just run their natural course.”
It is being reported that Madonna and Guy Ritchie will announce their split when Madonna’s world tour ends in November of this year.
Madonna, 49, plans to spend time between her homes in London, New York and Los Angeles.
Currently, Guy Ritchie, 39, is working on a modern-day version of the movie Sherlock Holmes.
A source said of the couple, “They live like brother and sister rather than husband and wife and thought it best to call it a day”.
And added, “They have just grown apart. They’ve decided they’re better off as friends. It’s sad but they’re determined to keep it amicable.”
Madonna is an open person and said in an MTV documentary that she “wanted to end everything”.
“My husband didn’t turn out to be everything I imagined him to be”, Madonna said.
It seemed problems started in the marriage when Guy Ritchie did not agree on Madonna’s decision to adopt baby David Banda from Malawi.
Madonna said of her husband, “Guy can be intolerant of my behavior”. And added, “But he has certain personality traits which need to change as well.”
