In any breakup, divorce, or 'break' lines in the sand get drawn and everyone has to choose a side. And why would that be any different for the Madonna – Guy Ritchie split? We'll spare you the obvious allies (or not, A-Rod's on her side and new squeeze Kelly Reilly is down with Guy) but some of the other might be a little less obvious. For the purpose of this exercise, we'll probably reference some dubious sources and likely jump to conclusions, just to show how silly this thing has gotten.
The Madonna Camp
Gwyneth Paltrow is down with Madonna. According to the San Francisco Gate, Margo Tenenbaum is 'there for' Madonna and ready to help with the healing process. Solid gold. Maybe there's something about being a blonde American entertainer living in London married to a handsome, short haired British artist that's trickier than it looks.
Ciara is down with Madonna, according to Angry Ape. Ciara says something about Madonna being a heck of a woman and A-plus, number one in her book. Sounds like someone's thinking duet (T Pain may be involved).
The New York Yankees. According to Sify.com, Guy Ritchie got really sad (some say cried but it may have also been dusty) when he spotted son Rocco sporting a Yankees jersey. This works on many psychological levels; A) The A-Rod thing, yeah that silly business; B) We’re pretty sure that most British people are still a little upset about the American Revolution and the word 'Yankee' burns biscuits over there; and C) In the UK, Hooligans wear jerseys. We imagine that normal people wear them, but so do Hooligans. My mom cried when I came home with a Mohawk for similar reasons.
We predict that there will be an American athlete and an American pop star in the next London gangster movie. And that things will not end well for them. RockNRolla has a sequel.
While Chris Martin hasn't publicly reached out to Guy Ritchie, he was seen on the town with Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr according to Stuff. Sure, RDJ and Jude Law star as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in Ritchie’s adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective tales, we're still convinced that they're down with Guy Ritchie.
