Pop superstar Madonna tried to control her knot with husband Guy Ritchie through a "marriage contract", thesun.co.uk reported.
The contract mentions how many times the two should go on dates and how often they should have sex. It also stated that Ritchie had to "work to enrich his wife's emotional and spiritual wellbeing" and demanded that he dedicate several hours each week to reading Kabbalah texts with her. He was also supposed "to resolve conflicts in a constructive way".
Ritchie was also not expected to raise his voice but look in Madonna's eyes and say "I understand that my actions have upset you, please work with me to resolve this".
A family friend said: "Guy felt bound up like a kipper."
The divorce proceedings are taking a bad turn and getting nastier.
