Although Madonna pretends to be an enlightened spiritual disciple of Kabbalah, her PR machine are in the midst of waging a full scale character assassination against Guy Ritchie on her orders. Yeah, too bad Kabbalah likes Guy Ritchie more. The Daily Mail reports:
“Rabbi Berg, the most senior kabbalah member and her spiritual leader, has instructed her that the ongoing mudslinging and prospect of a court battle between the sect’s two most high-profile members could badly damage its image. Berg has now given Madonna a 24-hour deadline to come back to him with a plan to mediate towards a swift divorce resolution using a round-table of kabbalah leaders chaired by him.’Rabbi Berg’s ultimate hope would be a reconciliation. ‘But that seems rather a distant hope so at best he would like to put an end to the public raking over of their marriage,’ said a source close to the couple. Madonna however is said to be torn with the idea, thinking that if they go to kabbalah mediation at this point, she will be persuaded to part with a substantial amount of her wealth and also may lose out in having to give Guy a larger share of custody of their son Rocco, seven, and David, three. Kabbalah’s view on this would be that it as far as family is concerned, it’s only money. Guy would get a lot more than if their lawyers were slugging it out. ‘Kabbalah might also give Guy better access than British law might. Let us not to forget that Guy and Rabbi Berg were also very close. ‘Guy really studied kabbalah. There was a feeling in certain quarters that Madonna’s interest in kabbalah was linked more to her ego. ‘Guy on the other hand was more interested in the fundamentals of it, in dissecting it. Consequently he had a much greater intellectual bond with the kabbalah leaders.'”
Along with money, the main sticking point of this is the future of Rocco Ritchie and the couple’s adopted son, David Blanda. Here’s a hint: They probably want to live with Guy.
“Guy wants them to be privately educated and live with him in London and at the couple’s Wiltshire estate, Ashcombe House. His argument is that Madonna should not be considered the children’s primary carer simply because she rarely cared for them – that nannies and other looked after them while Madonna pursued her career. Guy claims that especially in recent months, in the run up to Madonna’s world tour, when nannies were not caring for the children, he would be. He is also hoping staff will confirm his wife became increasingly erratic and volatile and would erupt into furious rages if things did not go her way.”
Man, I wonder how Madonna is gonna get past this. When asked for comment, Madonna said, ‘”Who hath disturbed my slumber?!?”. Apparently it wasn’t dusk yet. Oops, sorry Madonna!
