Friends close to Madonna have reportedly nicknamed her director hubby Guy Ritchie – Material Guy – owing to his purported cash demands ahead of their divorce.
The Material Girl hit maker had revealed to her friends that money was all that Guy was after and that he wants to bag as much of her hard-earned 320 million pound fortune as much as possible.
“I’m totally devastated that Guy’s turned out to be such a gold-digger,” the Sun quoted the singer as telling a friend.
“I thought we’d been on a spiritual journey together for the past ten years — but obviously I was wrong. He’s just after my money.
“I’ve worked my ass off for the last 30 years to get what I have, and now this gold-digger wants to take it from me.
“He keeps upping his demands — he just wants more, and more, and more from me. It’s unbelievable.”
Close pals of the Queen of Pop further said that Guy, who is reported to have his own 25 million pound fortune, never shelled a penny out of his own pocket during the couple’s eight-year-long marriage.
A friend said: “If he’s meant to be worth millions, then Madonna’s never seen a penny of it.
“He’s never contributed towards the running of the family and his son’s schooling.
“Contrary to the image being projected, Madonna’s been the rock of the family. She’s the one who has the kids with her at all times.”
