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.

If Guy would have been involved with a younger woman (vs. Madonna's alleged involvement with A-Rod) non of your name calling people with be singing the same song. She wasn't with him for the money or status... if anything he was using her for fame. So if she found more man in her Latin Lover (we all know Guy is not packing) and still managed to be home for dinner - Work it out!

buh-bye weiner party!    

I'm very happy for Guy. She is a horrible, horrible human being. Selfish, stupid, humorless, narcissistic, unkind and delusional. Best wishes to Guy Ritchie and his happy new life of freedom.

So sad. She adopted a child and brought him here to a broken family. How insensitive and irresponsible.

The real news is that it lasted 8 years. Hollywood marriages arn't real anyway, they'er publicity stunts.

U know i grew up with Madonna & always liked her music & thought she was a very pretty italian girl !!!! Now she looks like a scarecrow for sure, she looked much better with just alittle weight on her but hollywood has changed her to be what they all are skinny skinny skinny !!! They all look like they need to eat a good meal & maybe then they will be nice !!! Also no surprise about Madonna's divorce just par for the course with her & i thought this marriage might have worked for her but being she was in the news with AROD then who knows is she still a hoe ????? Later

Please, if for nothing more than the sake of the children, keep this out of the media. It is difficult enough for them, I am sure. I couldn't give a rat's ass about Madonna, but please think of the children. They're the ones who are really going to pay.

I am so tired of these celebrities not thinking of their children. Guy Richie has been the most stable influence in Madonna's children's lives, now she screws that up so she can f*** around like she use to when she was younger while dragging her children through her filth. Why the h*ll did she adopt that little boy just to have him now be from a broken home? Selfish SOB she is.... Grow up Madonna, you are not 20 any more...

Madonna and Guy were never a match made in heaven. I thought it was only a matter of time before the Tigress set her sights outside the family nest. I think she was bored of it, but I don't know her or him or their details, so I could be mistaken.

for someone who is so over, as a lot of you on here are saying, madonna is still able to sell out concerts. i don't think 50-70,000 people at each venue is the death nell to anyone's career. jealous much?

Didn't the relationship, the whole thing seem fake? That Guy seemed to be a control freak
and of-course he was a pivotal guide on the success of Madge's umm, promising movie career.
How about Madge's decision to marry to a man who is openly homophobic even though her
brother is gay, and arguably a gay icon? but with her and her brothers estrangement,
who cares, somebody has to shield those kids from the reality outside of her home. Since she
now wants to stay in the US I wonder if her English accent will go.

Madonna is a washed up has been and uses the media to sell her music and concerts. Attacking Palin just shows how washed up she is - jealous over the natural beauty both inside and outside versus the manufactured beauty that has been lost over the years by her true personality and transformed into the ugliness she has become. Her marriage has been a sham for the past few years and everyone could see it coming. You know what they say - you get what you deserve.
