Madonna's friends nickname Ritchie 'Material Guy'

London (ANI): Friends close to pop singer Madonna have reportedly
nicknamed her director hubby Guy Ritchie – 'Material Guy' – owing to
his purported cash demands ahead of their divorce. The 'Material Girl'
hit maker had revealed to her friends that money was all that Guy was
after and that he wants to bag as much of her hard-earned 320 million
pound fortune as much as possible.

"I'm totally devastated that Guy's turned out to be such a
gold-digger," the Sun quoted the singer as telling a friend. "I thought
we'd been on a spiritual journey together for the past ten 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. He keeps upping his demands — he just wants
more, and more, and more from me. It's unbelievable."

Close pals of the Queen of Pop further said that Guy, who is reported to have his own 25 million pound fortune, never shelled a penny out of his own pocket during the couple's eight-year-long marriage.


A friend said: "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."
