Madonna and Guy Ritchie are to divorce after almost eight years of marriage, according to newspaper reports. Skip related content
Related photos / videos Madonna And Guy 'To Get Divorced' The Sun says the couple will announce the split imminently.

The paper says that a recent escalation in rows has led to Madonna and Ritchie communicating via their personal assistants.

Ritchie has reportedly broken off from filming in France to fly back to the UK to inform his parents of the split.

He will now move out of the couple's London home and move into the Wiltshire mansion owned by the pair.

A source told The Sun: "Despite huge attempts to patch things up they both know deep down that divorce was on the cards. It wasn't a matter of 'if' but 'when'.

"They tried hard over the last few months but their fighting was getting out of control.

"The final straw came before Madonna started her US tour. They had a screaming match and Guy told her she had become a dead weight around his neck, dragging him down all the time."

The superstar singer and the British film director were rumoured to be on the verge of splitting in June this year, but the reports were denied.

Sources said they would announce their separation in November when Madonna's world tour is due to finish. That date has now apparently been brought forward because the singer is said to want to finalise the divorce before Christmas.

Madonna, 50, is said to have been in talks with Fiona Shackleton, the lawyer who handled Sir Paul McCartney's high-profile split from Heather Mills this year.

Legal experts have speculated that Ritchie - whose films include Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, RocknRolla and Swept Away, starring his wife - could walk away with a divorce settlement of up to 50m.

The couple are not thought to have signed a pre-nuptial agreement when they married in 2000. Madonna's wealth is estimated at about 300m.

The pair have spent most of their married life in London and Wiltshire with children Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight, and David, three, who was adopted from an orphanage in Malawi.

You can comment on Ian Blair's resignation at https://secure.met.police.uk/yourvoicecounts/index.php. The DT is going overboard on crying crocodile tears for his career.

My message to the police was:

I would like to express my delight that Ian Blair - he does not deserve to be called "Sir" - has been forced to resign in disgrace. He politicised the Police Force and made it a vehicle for multiculturalism and arguably connived at a rise in violent crime in the name of a multiracial society. What a pity he was not arrested and imprisoned by a nationalist government, and instead will retire on a fat pension paid by many poorer people who have no pension provision themselves. The assassination of Menezes was the last straw for me. There is nothing in law permitting the police to assassinate anyone. Cressida Dick should be arrested for conspiracy to murder. As far as Ian Blair is concerned - he is just a typical managerialist type who viewed his job as a career and lacked a sense of personal integrity. Any police officer with integrity would have resigned after the assassination of Menezes. That this runt sought to hang on to his high-paying job is simply contemptible. Although he has resigned, be clear in your minds that a future nationalist government would reopen his case, and could bring charges against him, Cressida Dick and others. He may have escaped justice this time, but he could yet be held to account.

I actually think if Enoch had split the party the political landscape would have been totally different.

Maybe Powellite, Labour and Liberal-Heathite?

Enoch's devotion to the Conservative Party is the key problem. The party owes him a lot for his support as they made the transition from patriotism to treason.

Clear - non-racist - thinking might have stopped immigration years ago.

But maybe not. If Enoch had not set out to shock he would have disappeared without trace.

The London borough census statistics speak for themselves. And its not just London people are fleeing from. Emigration (by our people, not foreigners) is at record levels.

Makes you laugh. All these liberals who have the truth staring them in the face yet they still cannot bring themselves to admit it. They are a danger to both themselves, and our country.

My parents, who always say they are not political and are definitely not racists, nevertheless moved out of London on the pretext that it was "not the place they grew up in" and "had changed".

But the actual newspaper one was far better because they had put a good picture of the bronze statue with the letter.
