Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie are still locked in a fierce custody battle over their children, according to U.K. reports.
The couple announced their split in October and finalized their divorce this month, with reports suggesting they had agreed to share custody of their sons, Rocco, 8, and David Banda, 3, with the boys splitting their time between their mother’s home in New York and Ritchie’s base in London.
Madonna’s 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship, is rumored to remain in the U.S. with the singer.
But new reports suggest the pair is still squabbling over custody rights, with the pop superstar allegedly determined to keep the family in America with her.
A source tells London newspaper The Evening Standard, “Both sets of lawyers have still got their heads down. It is very complicated.
“Ways need to be found to tie up claims both in New York and in London. I am sure they will both want to settle this amicably. They won’t want this aired in public.”
The publication goes on to suggest that Madonna wants to buy Ritchie an apartment in the Big Apple to keep him close to the children, while they are raised in the U.S.
A spokesperson for Madonna was unable to be reached for comment as WENN went to press.
