The London attorneys alleged to be representing Madonna’s director husband Guy Ritchie in their rumoured divorce have denied having any involvement in the case.
The superstar couple has been plagued by rumours of a split for months, and reports heated up when it was claimed the pair had begun to seek legal advice from top lawyers.
Ritchie was reported to have hired Mayfair law firm Forsters, which specialises in ‘high net worth’ family law cases, to represent him.
But a spokesperson for the company has dismissed the reports, stating: “We are not acting for Guy Ritchie in this matter.”
And Ann Northover, head of Forsters’ family division, has reinforced the fact, adding, “I can only say I have no involvement at this moment.”
Madonna is rumoured to have met with Fiona Shackleton, the attorney who represented Sir Paul MCCartney during his court battle with Heather Mills earlier this year (08).
Shackleton’s employers, Payne Hicks Beach, is refusing to comment.
