Sting and Trudie StylerSting’s wife Trudie Styler has said she hopes friends Madonna and Guy Ritchie will settle their divorce amicably for the sake of their children.

Trudie helped introduce the couple ten years ago and is godmother to their eight year old son Rocco.

Following their big split announcement last week, she told Extra: “I’m sad when great things come to an end, but they both need to recapture their lives.

“They’ll work it out. They’re both big enough people to become great friends in time, and I’m sure that they will for the sake of their kids, if nothing else.”
