With rumors of a budding relationship between Ritchie and heiress Jemima Khan gaining momentum, there's at least one person who couldn't be happier: Ritchie's soon-to-be ex-wife, Madonna.
"It's not like she's asking him for details, but she's thrilled at the prospect of him moving on. It makes things easier for everybody," says a Madonna pal.
Ritchie and Khan (who used to be linked with
Hugh Grant) are said to have attended a dinner party in London together
earlier this month, and the Mirror reports that they attended a Christmas party together this weekend. Other big names who were there: Stella and
Mary McCartney, Lily Allen, Mick Jagger and Kevin Spacey.
for the latest on Madonna and her "friendship" with Yankee slugger Alex
Rodriguez: the Madonna pal says things are just fine. "There's no
drama. They're trying to keep a low profile," the source says.
A-Rod is said to have plans to be with Madonna in London for the holidays.
