LONDON: Madonna's divorce from her British director husband Guy Ritchie is getting uglier as he asks for more and more money and the pop diva labels him as a "gold digger".
According to thesun.co.uk, Ritchie had initially said he would not want any money from his wife at all, but now it seems he wants to get as much as possible. Madonna also believes that all Ritchie was after during their marriage was her money.
Madonna reportedly told a friend: "I'm totally devastated that Guy's turned out to be such a gold-digger. I thought we'd been on a spiritual journey together for the past 10 years, but obviously I was wrong. He's just after my money. I've worked my ass off for the last 30 years to get what I have, and now this gold-digger wants to take it from me."
She added: "Kabbalah philosophy teaches that you don't take what you haven't earned. Well that's exactly what Guy is doing. He hasn't earned a penny of it, yet wants to take, take, take. He keeps upping his demands - he just wants more, and more, and more from me. It's unbelievable."
Though it seems Ritchie has up to 25 million pounds, Madonna's friends claim he is stingy.
"If he's meant to be worth millions, then Madonna's never seen a penny of it. He's never contributed towards the running of the family and his son's schooling. Contrary to the image being projected, Madonna's been the rock of the family. She's the one who has the kids with her at all times. They are home-schooled and they go on the road with her," said a friend.
