The details of queen of pop Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s much-hyped divorce battle will be made public as they prepare to fight it out in a US court.
As the Material Girl plans a permanent move to the US, she wants the UK deal to be transferred to the States. Unlike Britain, family hearings are open to the public in America.
Madge apparently wants her two sons Rocco, eight, and David, three, to follow her Kabbalah faith, a form of Jewish spiritualism and insists they eat kosher food and worship at synagogues on Fridays and Saturdays.
The court case will take place in New York.
“There is going to be a hearing next month and the papers that have been filed will be available then,” the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.
“The New York hearing will confirm the English proceedings. There will be revelations, but the divorce remains amicable and intelligently handled,” the source added.
The couple have kept most of the details of their divorce secret since breaking up last year.
It has also been said that Ritchie has landed a settlement worth 45million pounds, a British legal record for the amount a woman has given a husband.
