Madonna Will Keep Her Cash

“A court schedule says Madonna and Guy Ritchie will be granted the first stage of their divorce in London Friday. London’s High Court lists ‘Ciccone M L v Ritchie G S’ as one of 16 cases for ‘matrimonial and civil partnership causes for pronouncement of decree.’ A judge will grant the couple a preliminary divorce decree, or decree nisi. After six weeks and a day they likely will be granted a decree absolute and the divorce will become final. It is unusual for the couple to attend court in such cases.” [AP] And: “According to the British press, Madonna, 50, and Ritchie, 40, reached a settlement over money and their kids Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3. London’s Evening Standard reports that Madonna will keep the bulk of her estimated $500 million fortune intact, though Ritchie was entitled by law to a share of it.” [People]
