Guy Ritchie reportedly spent the New Year alone at his country estate in England – as his eight-year marriage with Madonna came to an end.
The RocknRolla director was said to have been on his own in his Wiltshire mansion while the Queen of Pop welcomed 2009 with their three kids in the Maldives.
The celebrity couple, who were granted a “quickie” divorce in November, officially ended their marriage on January 3.
And according to sources, the Brit director was feeling the blues.
"Guy was on a real downer over New Year and just wanted to be alone to think. He watched TV, had a few beers and then had an early night,” the Daily Express quoted a source as telling British tabloid the People.
"He's been quite bullish throughout the divorce and when out with the lads he gives the impression that he is relieved to be a free man again,” the source added.
