Amid rumors that his marriage to Madonna is about to come to a final end (yet again), Guy Ritchie was spotted making his way to London’s Heathrow airport supposedly bound for NYC where his wife Maddy (who is furiously working on rehearsals for her upcoming Sticky & Sweet Tour) and his their children have been staying for the past week or so. The Sun is reporting that Guy is winging his way to the States in order to make a last ditch effort to save his marriage … tho, it’s entirely plausible that these rumors are totally unfounded and he is merely making his way to NY to visit with his family (if he’s even headed to NY at all). Here are a few pics of Guy in London, supposedly making his way to the US:
GUY RITCHIE is flying to New York this weekend in a last-ditch bid to save his marriage to MADONNA. The couple hope to get their relationship back on track for the sake of their children. A source close to them said: “It is make or break time for Guy and Madonna. She is completely focused on rehearsals for her tour in America and can’t come back to London. They want to make the marriage work, but they are at a stalemate. Divorce is something they have thought about.” The Sun first revealed in March that the seven-year marriage was in trouble. The couple have not been photographed together since June 2 and had looked strained and ill-at-ease in each other’s company. Over the last six months both film director Guy, 39, and 49-year-old Madonna have consulted lawyers in case of a permanent split. The singer — referred to as Em by her close pals — has taken informal advice from top divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton, who handled SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY’s divorce from HEATHER MILLS. The source added: “Em went to Fiona so that if they do split up, it will be easier to handle all the publicity if everything is in place legally. But at the moment they are both trying to rescue the situation. Em has shown a willingness to patch things up. But because almost all rehearsals for the tour are in New York rather than in London Guy thinks she’s not sacrificing much. He has now decided to fly out there this weekend to try to sort things out.” If the couple cannot patch up their differences, the split will NOT be a court circus like that of Macca and Mucca. The Ritchies are determined to remain civil. And, despite some reports, friends say they DO have a watertight pre-nuptial deal that will make any split more amicable. The key issue is Madonna’s desire to live in New York with her children Lourdes, 11, Rocco, seven, and adopted David, two. She has spent a fortune renovating her Manhattan apartment, installing a gym and a giant rehearsal room … Madonna’s world tour will not end until next year, while Guy is working on commercials and two movies.
Thus far, there hasn’t been any real substantive proof that the couple are breaking up … it’s more of the same — “the couple never look happy together”, “Guy doesn’t want more kids”, “Madonna wants to move to NY” — these are the same reports that have plagued their entire 7-year marriage. I really like Madonna and Guy together as a couple. I think they compliment each other very well and they have a really beautiful family. No matter what is going on in their personal lives, I hope they are able to successfully contend with the rumors and come out on top as a happy couple.
