Confirmed: Madonna And Guy To Divorce
LONDON — After countless denials of domestic trouble, Madonna and Guy Ritchie announced Wednesday they are divorcing after nearly eight years of marriage. The couple’s announcement brings to an end a showbiz union that spanned the Atlantic and dominated the gossip columns.
Madonna _ “Madge” to the British press _ and her filmmaker husband were always greater tabloid fodder in England, where they lived. The pop star seemed to take to English life, spending much of her time at the couple’s 1,200-acre country estate in Wiltshire, and to some ears, adopting a slight British accent.
But in recent years, reports began to accumulate that they were on the rocks.
