Guy Ritchie's mother has dismissed reports that he and Madonna are divorcing as "total tosh," the Daily Mail reports.
Reports have circulated recently that Madonna, 49, and her filmmaker husband, 40, are living separate lives and have planned a formal announcement about their split after Madonna finishes her world tour in November. Madonna has reportedly met with Fiona Shackleton, the divorce lawyer who represented Sir Paul McCartney in his split from Heather Mills.
But Lady Amber Leighton called the reports "works of fiction" and said that "they are no different to most other couples and we all know that being together can be hard sometimes. But like other couples they work at keeping their relationship happy and fresh."
She then said she "spoke to Guy this morning, not about divorce but about a new feature film project he has got under way. There’s no conversation about divorce because there is no divorce."
Ritchie left Heathrow Airport in London on Monday en route to New York; Madonna was at New York’s Kabbalah Center on Friday night.
Madonna is currently promoting her album "Hard Candy" and her world tour, set to start in Europe in August. Madonna has three children, Lourdes, 13, with personal trainer Carlos Leon, Rocco, 7, with Ritchie and David, 2, who was adopted from Malawi.
