Madonna and ex-husband Ritchie urged to settle row
Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie should try to settle a bitter transatlantic legal dispute over the future of their son Rocco and focus on enjoying what is left of his "precious" childhood, a High Court judge in London has said.
Mr Justice MacDonald said it would be a "very great tragedy" if more of the "fast receding" days of 15-year-old Rocco's youth were taken up by litigation.
The judge pleaded with them to resolve their differences.
Mr Justice MacDonald ruled that Madonna could halt legal action in England and allow a judge in New York to make decisions. Neither Madonna, Mr Ritchie nor Rocco were in court to see the judge deliver his ruling.
