Madonna and Guy Ritchie Split

After months of speculation by the media, word has finally come down that Madonna and her husband, British film maker Guy Ritchie, have officially agreed to a divorce. Final terms have yet to be reached, but the details are sure to be complicated considering their combined $525 million dollar fortune and son, Rocco.
Having been together for almost eight years, rumors of troubles in their marriage began to swirl earlier this year, with Madonna linked to recently separated New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. British tabloid the Sun, quotes a source close to the couple as saying, "They were a great couple and brilliant parents. They just couldn't live together any more." Those licking their chops for another McCartney and Mills style court showdown could be disappointed though. Lawyers with experience dealing with such high-profile divorce cases, say the couple's private nature make it doubtful that they would choose to air details of their private lives in such a public forum.
