Tears & Tantrums! Inside Madonna’s War With Son Rocco
Madonna‘s son Rocco Ritchie will be home for Christmas — at least if the pop diva has her way! She went to court in New York Wednesday to get a judge’s order forcing him to fly back to New York for the holidays , and now, only RadarOnline.com has all the inside details about their explosive family feud.
According to an insider, the trouble started when Rocco, 15, “ran away in Stockholm.” Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour, with son Rocco in tow, stopped there in mid-November.
“M and Rocco were having bad shouting matches,” the insider explained. “She’d be crying and yelling at him.”
Despite traveling with his mom on the tour for months, Rocco, “doesn’t want to be with her. He wants to be with this dad,” Guy Ritchie, the source said.
So when the tour stopped in London the first week in December, Rocco took the opportunity to make a break for it.
“He took off for his dad’s house and hasn’t seen her since,” the source said.
Swinging into action, Madonna, 57, fired his “manny” over it, according to the source, and had emergency meetings with her attorneys in London, to no avail.
“She couldn’t get an order that would require Rocco to return to her house,” the source said.
Wednesday, a Manhattan judge finally issued an order demanding Rocco “face his mother” in the U.S., but it remains to be seen if he’ll show up in time for the holidays.
“He has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York,” Ritchie’s attorney Eric Buckley told Page Six .
And a source close to the case claimed that Rocco might go against Judge Kaplan‘s orders.
