Madonna‘s son Rocco, 15, was ordered to go back to New York City with his mom on Wednesday (December 23), despite his desire to live in London, England with his father, director Guy Ritchie.
“He has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York,” Guy‘s attorney said in a statement (via Gossip Cop).
“I’m granting you all the relief you have requested. I’m directing the child to be returned to New York. If he wants to stay with his father, he [first] must return to his mother,” the judge told Madonna on Wednesday, meaning Rocco would be allowed to live with his father abroad, but would have to go through the necessary steps to do so. Rocco will reportedly get his own court-appointed lawyer to help him through the proceedings.
