Guy Ritchie’s Dad Blasts Madonna
John Ritchie is apparently not one to mince words.
In an interview with In Touch magazine, the father of RocknRolla director Guy Ritchie, 40, spared no mercy when discussing the divorce of his son and his ex-wife, 50-year-old pop singer Madonna.
“The worst thing would be if they reconciled,” the elder Ritchie says of the pair, who announced their split in October. “Guy is better off. He’s in the States with the children at the moment.”
Ritchie’s sentiment is understandable, as the Madge and Ritchie were particularly unpleasant toward each other in the wake of their break-up.
But while the two seem to have mended their fences somewhat for the sake of their children recently, Guy’s dad need not worry too much about a full-on make-up. After all, since the split Madge has been romantically linked to both New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and Brazilian model Jesus Luz.
In fact, the elder Ritchie is just fine with his former daughter-in-law’s busy social schedule: “We hope she does have a lot of boyfriends, because it means she won’t ever get back together with Guy!”
And by “we,” John presumably means himself and his son.
“Guy doesn’t mind at all [about Madonna's romantic life],” Ritchie says. “At least she won’t be looking for him.” Besides, with Guy rumored to be dating 33-year-old heiress Jemima Khan, chances are he has more pleasant things to do than ruminate over his ex-wife’s love life.
