Madonna's Divorce: Official!
Madonna and Guy Ritchie are divorcing after almost eight years of marriage.
“Madonna and Guy Ritchie have agreed to divorce after 7 1/2 years of marriage,” her rep Liz Rosenberg said in a statement to The Associated Press. “They have both requested that the media maintain respect for their family at this difficult time. A final settlement has not been agreed upon yet.”
According to Britain’s The Sun newspaper, the couple decided to go public with the split now because they “can’t bear to live with the pretense any longer… A series of rows around Guy’s 40th birthday last month were so bad that Madge ended up storming out of the house and Guy’s had enough.”

UPDATE: It’s being reported that the couple don’t have a pre-nup and Guy could walk away with $250 million, one of the biggest divorce payouts in history.
