Madonna’s publicist has hit back at claims that the superstar hired Heather Mills’ hard-hitting divorce lawyer, Nicholas Mostyn QC, suggesting a bitter feud was about to erupt.
A celebrity gossip website reported the couple may not have a prenuptial agreement, leaving them both exposed to a harsh fight for joint assets, as well as threatening Madge’s estimated L40m fortune.
The lawyer claimed to have been hired has had a series of high profile divorce proceedings including Earl Spencer and Ray Parlour as past clients.
A source told the gossip site that the alleged separation was due to the couple “growing apart” after spending more and more time estranged and suggested the negative media attention over their adoption strained the relationship further.
Madonna’s public relations agent told Metro that these rumours are “completely untrue” and the couple’s eight year relationship is still intact.
Rumours have been circulating for months speculating that the couple might be on the rocks and Guy Ritchie fuelled further gossip as he failed to show up to his wife’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction in March.
The multimillionaire couple have one son together, Rocco, as well as David Banda, who was adopted. Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, is from a past relationship.
