Madge and Guy -- Officially Splitsville

10/15/2008 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna and Guy Ritchie are divorcing, their rep has confirmed.

"Madonna and Guy Ritchie have agreed to divorce after seven-and-a-half years of marriage. They have both requested that the media maintain respect for their family at this difficult time," says a statement given to the AP.

The joint statement from Madge and Guy's reps emphasizes the couple haven't agreed to any kind of settlement. We're told by sources in London and NYC the matter will most likely be hashed out in London, even though Madge could move to bring the matter to the US if she wanted.

Just to set the scene, Madonna is in Boston, Guy is in the UK, and A-Rod was last spotted in L.A.

The Ritchies are splitting up after 8 years of marriage.

This was just stated bu Barbara Walter's on the view, in one of Madonna's recent concerts she said, "All of you sitting down need to stand. This is not a Barbara Striesand concert"!

F!ck you Madonna..................I paid for this seat and I will sit in it!

At her age she should have been paying attention to her husband and family , instead of running around like she was still an active talent. She is long past her prime and doesn't want to be. She is the type of person who is too selfish to be married.

Lucky Guy! I'm sure he is more than ready to get off that ride. I guess she can take that red dental floss off her wrist now.

It's sad. They have children and it seems like because they have so much $$ between the 2 of them, they can't find in them or eachother or their family to make their marriage work. No one said getting married and having a family is easy. Maybe people should think about it before they do it. I LOVE Madonna's music and I LOVE Guy's movies, but Madonna seems like she would be less then easy to get along with so in a way, I commend Guy for sticking it out and being Mr. Madonnna for all these years. Hopefully the kids won't suffer through this.

What about all those kids? Especially little David. Will he be sent back to Ethiopia now that the marriage has fallen apart? Can you imagine what those poor kids have seen and heard these past few years? And all that is going to come out with the divorce. They are the ones that are going to suffer, though it seems like this divorce is for the best. No one seemed very happy in this family. Though it's kind of hard to be happy when mommy is jetsetting all over the world and acting like a whore. What are her kids, especially her sons, going to think of her when they get older and see how she has exploited herself.

It all started when she insisted on adopting a black kid. He wasn't into that at all.

I hear it's because Guy is a huge McCain/Palin supporter. Good for him.
