Superstar Madonna is singing the blues this Christmas because her son Rocco, 15, has defied her request to be with her in New York, preferring to stay in London with his father, filmmaker Guy Ritchie.
Incensed, the “Holiday” singer went to Manhattan Supreme Court, where she got Justice Deborah Kaplan to order the teen to return to New York.
But a court order on the other side of the Atlantic may not carry much weight with the son of such action/crime movies as “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”
Guy, 47, got a British court to rule that Rocco could remain with him — setting up an international custody war.
Rocco “has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York,” Ritchie’s attorney, Eric Buckley, who is representing the teen, told the judge.
Rocco had been traveling with Madonna, 57, on her Rebel Heart world tour for the last two months, and apparently he’s had enough — he bolted for England after spending the Thanksgiving holiday on the road with his mother.
The judge said Rocco must come to New York as his mother wants, and then he can tell the judge whether he wants to live with his mom or dad.
Madonna claimed the dispute belongs in New York, where she lives.
Judge Kaplan told her to talk about it with Guy, whom she divorced in 2008, before they return to court.
