Guy Ritchie’s mother last night dismissed speculation that Madonna wants to divorce her son as ‘total tosh’.
Lady Amber Leighton said there was ‘no conversation about divorce because there is no divorce’ and described allegations that couple had spoken to lawyers as ‘works of fiction’.
She added: ‘It is absolute rubbish, worse than that. Guy will be furious at me talking to you but I feel I can’t just let these reports go unanswered as they make me so angry and they are hurtful intrusions into their private lives.
‘They are no different to most other couples and we all know that being together can be hard sometimes and marriages are not always a bed of roses.
‘But like other couples they work at keeping their relationship happy and fresh and they are a close and loving couple who have a family to bring up.’
Mr Ritchie, 39, flew to New York on Friday night to see Madonna and their children after a week of reports that she had asked him for a divorce.
The couple are said to be leading separate lives and it has been stated that a formal announcement of a split has been planned for the end of November after Madonna finishes her world tour.
But at her home near Somerton, Somerset, on Friday, Lady Leighton, 62, said: ‘I spoke to Guy this morning, not about divorce but about a new feature film project he has got under way.
‘There’s no conversation about divorce because there is no divorce.
‘Madonna is in New York at the moment finishing off a tour and he will join her there after the weekend.
‘That is not a couple splitting up. I’ll say it one more time, they are not getting divorced; the speculation is TT – that’s total tosh.’
