I bet Madonna is feeling really badly right about now.
Why? Because Guy Ritchie and 15-year-old Rocco have formed a united front, and plan to fight a custody war against Madge for the next three years of Rocco’s life. TMZ reports:
Our sources say Rocco has not softened his position … he now wants to live with his dad. We’re told Rocco feels his mom is “too controlling” and doesn’t pay him any real attention. It’s now been a month since he left Madonna’s tour to live with his dad, and he feels more strongly than ever he wants to stay put.
We’re told Rocco, like his dad, feels home life in London is more stable and loving. It’s no longer just that Rocco doesn’t like touring with his mom … he says he just doesn’t want to live with her anymore.
We’re told Guy has hired a lawyer to mount a legal fight.
As we reported, our Madonna sources say Guy has gotten in Rocco’s ear and is talking trash about her. The two have had a rocky co-parenting experience, often fighting.
A New York judge has ordered Rocco back in the U.S. for a hearing in February.
MADONNA? TOO CONTROLLING? Impossible. I can’t really imagine what it must be like to be the kid of Guy Richie and Madonna, but I kinda believe Guy’s camp on this one.
Where do you think Rocco should live?

Madonna‘s son Rocco made the decision to stay in London during Christmas despite legal agreements ordering him to go to NYC, but we didn’t realize that it was THIS bad…
Apparently Rocco is fed up with Madonna as a mom, but also with their lifestyle and relationship as a whole. He details fights, screaming, and all kinds of tumult, even telling friends he felt like Madge’s “trophy.” Yikes. TMZ reports:
Sources who were on Madonna’s tour tell us, Rocco was “miserable” being carted around the world by his mom. As one source put it, “There were horrible, full-blown fights with screaming and crying.”
We’re told during the Stockholm leg of the tour, Rocco was a no-show when the charter plane was ready to take off … he had made an escape run, but it appears he eventually came back.
Things deteriorated during the London shows in December. Rocco told his dad he couldn’t handle it anymore … he couldn’t take the traveling and the fights. Our sources say Rocco told Guy he felt like Madonna treated him more like a trophy than a son.
Rocco now thinks his mom is jealous of his dad’s “stable life” and his desire to live with his dad.
Rocco has been ordered to return to NYC for a court hearing. It will be interesting to hear if his bad feelings dissipate and how much the judge considers his living preference.
Ooof. Let’s pray that 2016 means this mother and son make amends.

More trouble between Madonna and her kid, 15-year-old Rocco!
Remember all that Madge/Rocco Christmas drama we reported about? Well, Madonna says it stems from ex Guy Ritchie influencing, Rocco, and poisoning their idyllic mother-son relationship!
We all know Guy and Madonna have had a “volatile” relationship for years, and Rocco has always kind of been a source of them playing out their pettiness. According to TMZ, Madonna is a strict disciplinarian and “very controlling,” something that obvi doesn’t resonate well with Rocco or most teenagers, really.
Guy was angry at Madonna and used his visit with Rocco to make more trouble between mom and son. That being said, TMZ also reports that Madonna isn’t super worried about the rift- she’s confident Rocco’s coming back home for good, and this is just part and parcel to co-parenting.
Who would you rather have as a parent- Madonna or Guy Ritchie? DISCUSS!

Dang! It’s a drama-filled Christmas for Madonna and her son, Rocco!
Apparently Rocco was touring with his pop-star mom, so he’s refusing to spend the holiday break with Madge at her Manhattan townhouse. Sounds like a teenager to me. Page Six reports:
When Rocco, 15, disobeyed his mom’s demand to board a plane from London — where he’s staying with his filmmaker dad, Guy Ritchie — Madonna ran to court Wednesday to force the teen’s return to New York.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan ordered Rocco to come home, but Ritchie’s attorney made it clear that he would not voluntarily return to the US.
“He has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York,” Ritchie’s attorney Eric Buckley told the judge.
The comment annoyed Madonna, who tried to interject, but was hushed by her celebrity divorce attorney Eleanor Alter.
A source close to the case said Rocco might not abide by Judge Kaplan’s order.
“This is a 15½-year-old strapping young kid, so we’ll see,” a source close to the case told The Post.
The source said Rocco had been traveling with Madonna across the world for her Rebel Heart tour for the last two months.
“The boy said he didn’t want to stay with her,” the source said. “He’s not getting along with his mom, which is not a surprise for a child that age.”
Madge announced in August that Rocco would be touring with her, and I guess that didn’t go well. So we’ll see where lil Rocco will be for Christmas…
