Madonna’s homeless brother Anthony Ciccone claims that his billionaire superstar sister “doesn’t give a s**t if I’m dead or alive”.

The 54-year-old superstar has been declared the best selling female pop artist of all time and her net worth has apparently reached $1 billion.

Madonna, whose birth name is Madonna Louise Ciccone, hails from the state of Michigan and is the third child of six siblings.

Her alcoholic brother Anthony, who has been living on the streets of Traverse City, Michigan for three years, makes it clear he feels no love from Madonna.

“Madonna doesn’t give a s**t if I’m dead or alive. She lives in her own world,” Anthony told the Daily Mail Online.

“I never loved her in the first place, she never loved me. We never loved each other. My father would be very happy if I died of hypothermia and then he would not have to worry about it anymore. He’s old school, he grew up in the Depression.

“He doesn’t want to be bothered, he’s lived his life you see. He doesn’t like me. He doesn’t want me to be me, he wants me to be somebody else. He thinks the way I live is intentional. He simply doesn’t know me.”

Anthony pleads for support from his family.

He isn’t happy being shunned.

“I’m a human being, you can call me what you want. [Alcoholic] is a label, I don’t like it. I don’t need brain surgery, I merely need love and care of family and friends,” Anthony said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
