The couple are said to have agreed to joint custody of their sons, eight year old Rocco and three year old David, but Guy was resisting Madonna’s plans to move the boys to New York as it would make his access harder.
The boys, along with Madonna’s twelve year old daughter Lourdes from a previous relationship, had previously been based out of the couple’s former marital home in London until Madonna moved back to the US last summer, initially for rehearsals for her Sticky & Sweet Tour then permanently after she announced her separation from Guy.
A source close to the family told the Sun that after lengthy legal meetings, Madonna has now been given temporary permission to move the boys to New York with a permanent ruling expecting to follow shortly: “Everything is going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks.
“Everything is going well. It’s pretty amicable at the moment. Things are progressing.”
The couple’s divorce initially looked like it would rival Paul McCartney’s split from Heather Mills in terms of acrimony and bitterness but they are believed to have called a truce for the sake of the children and after spending time together as a family at Christmas, have agreed to maintain the peace at future important events too.
