Madonna in tears over son Rocco

Madonna, who according to sources is close to losing the custody battle over her 15-year-old son Rocco to Guy Ritchie, struggled with her live shows this weekend in New Zealand.

On Sunday in Auckland, Madge took the stage an hour and a half late.

Saturday, she broke down onstage while dedicating the song “La Vie en Rose” to Rocco, saying, “It’s true, there is no love stronger than a mother for her son…I hope he hears this somewhere and knows how much I miss him.”

The case was in court last week with hearings in both New York and London over whether Rocco will have to return to the US.

He’s been living with his father in London since December.
