Madonna‘s rift with her son Rocco Ritchie has pervaded social media.

The 15-year-old has reportedly blocked the Rebel Heart singer on Instagram, while his father, Madonna’s ex Guy Ritchie has lawyered up in anticipation of a brewing custody battle.

According to Page Six, amongst Rocco’s 138,000 followers on his recently-turned private Instagram are his filmmaker dad and his stepmom, Jacqui Ainsley, but not Madonna, who he’s used Instagram’s “block” function against, reports say.

A family source told Britain’s The Sun, “It’s not a great sign that Rocco is blocking his mum on social media, especially after all the rumours that she was embarrassing him with her posts about him.

“It’s even more of a blow because he allows Jacqui and Guy to still follow him and he follows them back. Hopefully this is just a teenage teething problem.”

With Madonna unable to view her son’s Instagram page while he’s ditched her to stay in England with Guy, things are seemingly not faring well for the pending international custody battle. Rocco had been touring with Madonna up until last month when he opted to stay in England instead of returning to New York to spend the holidays with her. A Manhattan judge has since ordered for his return for a hearing in February while a London court has given the okay for him to stay with Ritchie.

TMZ reports today that Rocco hasn’t changed his mind and wants to live with his father. Not only does he no longer want to go on tour with Madonna, he no longer wants to live with her period. He feels Madonna is “too controlling,” and doesn’t pay him any real attention. He enjoys his life in London and likes his dad because his home is reportedly “more stable and loving.”

We previously reported that Guy was bad-mouthing Madonna to Rocco, and that Rocco felt more like a trophy than an actual son while on tour with Madonna.

Yesterday, Madonna posted a snap of her and daughter Lourdes (in which Lady Gagawas also awkwardly photoshopped out):
