Reuters: ”No comment” from Madonna’s UK publicist
Speculation that pop singer Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie plan to divorce grew on Wednesday after a report in a British newspaper said the couple would announce the split “imminently.”
When asked about the report in the Sun tabloid, Barbara Charone, Madonna’s London-based publicist, replied: “No comment.”
Madonna and British film maker Ritchie have denied previous reports that they planned to end their eight-year marriage.
Madonna and Ritchie have a son, Rocco, who was several months old on their wedding day. In 2006 Madonna applied to adopt David Banda, a boy from Malawi whose mother died shortly after his birth.
The adoption was approved by a court in Malawi in May.
Madonna also has a daughter, Lourdes, from an earlier relationship. She was married once before, to actor Sean Penn, in the 1980s.
