The most publicized celebrity divorce between pop diva Madonna and film director Guy Ritchie has finally been granted by the British High Court.
Both the A-List celebrities were not present in the court. They were represented by their respective attorneys. A sworn statement released by the court stated that Madonna sought divorce on the grounds of Ritchie’s unreasonable behaviour.
Both Madonna and Ritchie were reported to have reached a private settlement under which Madonna would keep her £300-million fortune with Ritchie agreeing not to make any claims. They also reported to have agreed to share custody of their two boys, Rocco (8) and David Banda (3) whom Madonna adopted. Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes (12), from an earlier marriage, will stay with her.
