Will Guy Keep Madge Out of Court?

6/27/2008 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe the most surprising thing about all the Madonna divorce buzz – Guy Ritchie might keep the whole marital melee out of court.

Pals of Guy tell the UK's Mirror that Guy's trying to avoid a "final break" and doesn't want to drag the battle into court ... even though he could get up to $100 mil of the Material Girl's fortune. "It's not his style to start profiteering from such sorry circumstances," says a friend.

Of course, he has taken "informal legal advice" from Forsters, a top London divorce firm.

Hulk and Linda – Ruined by Reality?


Even though we heard all about Hulk Hogan and son Nick's plans for a "real-ality" show about Nick, Hulk now says that it's the Hogan reality show that nixed his marriage in the first place.

He tells People that "Hogan Knows Best" might've been the culprit: "I just think the reality show amplified the problems that were already there." Linda filed for divorce in November, and as TMZ has chronicled, the battle has been messy.

Hulk also says that his relationship with daughter Brooke was "strained" after he started dating her pals.

J. Lo Dragged into Court for Diddy Shooting


She might have moved on long ago from P. Diddy, but Jennifer Lopez is going to have to relive her most infamous night with him.

J. Lo will be forced to testify in a $130 million lawsuit brought against Diddy back after being served with a subpoena last week, reports the New York Post. The suit was brought by Natania Reuben, the woman who was shot in the face during the 1999 nightclub shooting involving P.D. and Jamal "Shyne" Barrow.

Diddy was exonerated in the shooting; Shyne is still serving time for the incident.

Party Favors: Ledger "Mad-Crazy-Blazing" in "Dark Knight" ... Jess Loves the Putta ... nesca


The early buzz on Heath Ledger in "Batman" is already in – and he's already getting Oscar props. Rolling Stone's Peter Travers says that Ledger's turn as the Joker is "mad-crazy-blazing brilliant" and deserves an Oscar. ... TMZ spies spotted Jessica Simpson at TREVI Italian in Caesars Palace in Vegas a couple days ago, housing some of the joint's Penne Puttanesca.

Gee, why didn't it occur to Hulk that dating his daughter's friends would damage his relationship with her? What is he and Linda trying to prove by dating people the same age or close in age to their kids? There's probably some psychologist out there having a field day with this dysfunctional family.

Remember Guy, when she was on her way to the top she pissed on everyone. She took no crap from anyone and ran anyone over who got in her way. Take her ass for as much as you can get. This is a piece of garbage and she sucks also.

her and started banging her friends? WTF is the matter with them, why
won't they just go away like their carreers have....

Yes, Hulk and Brookes relatioship looked strained during the rubdown. I agree, they need to quit speaking publically altogether and fade away.

What about the child Madonna just adopted? Is Guy the legal parent? She had no business doing that if her marriage was collapsing.

Guy won't want to hurt his little boy, Rocco, but it makes me wonder about the other little boy, David. I think he's just a new toy for Madonna and her daughter, and that the marriage was only kept together long enogh to finalize his adoption. Ugh.

For the love of Pete, please stop calling her "Madge". It sounds so stupid. She is down to one name already, and you want to condense it down to one syllable? What's next for her? "M?

Madonna's only talents are the ones which keep her in the media. Her singing is horrible and her looks weird. The whole adoption thing was just another ploy to put herself in the news. Guy Ritchie will be well rid of her. As for Mr. Meathead Bollea, so he admits "Hogan Knows Best" may have ruined his marriage....I'm sure it didn't help it in any way. It did one thing....it showed the world what idiots him and his whole family are. Grow up Terry and keep your hands to yourself. Linda needs some major mental medical care and possible jail time, right along with you. Brooke needs a shrink and some major education. As for Nick, I fear he is a lost cause. You and Linda screwed him up big time.

Make It Right!!    

First I would like to commend Guy Ritchie for taking the high road...that makes him the man we all thought he was...however, he did give up his very promising career to make only films that starred his wife as she demanded and so therefore, he does deserve REAL compensation for the steller career he could have had after such hits as Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.

As for JLo getting hit with, wait, not one but TWO LAWSUITS THIS WEEK? Karma is the ultimate BIOTCH even for your Diva a$$ LaLopez!! Rake her over the coals folks!! Couldn't happen to a nicer girl...except for maybe Madonna...LOL!

Madge is a no talent loser. When she was up and coming she was interviewed and asked what was in her closet? She quickly snapped "certainly nothing for the Gap!" Now years later she does commercials for who? Gap!"
Her songs are sold and used in commercials before they are even released as music. She never met a dollar she wouldn't whore for. First it was all about a Sex Book she crammed down our throats, now she writes childrens books. She nothing but a skank from Detroit. The boy David is such an act. Copied straight from Angie Jolie another no talent skank who will do anything for a dollar

Who cares what Madonna does, except Madonna? She's a has been and is probably a clone of Joan Crawford behind closed doors and at home. I hope Guy takes her for all she's got. She's full of herself and washed up. Kabalah is a religion that will eventually do her in.
