It’s no longer news that the popular director was once married to famous singer, Madonna. Ritchie’s popularity further grew in the early 2000s following news of his marriage to the singer.

Their union saw the birth of a son, Rocco John Richie whom they raised alongside their adopted son, David.

Their marriage seemed like it was made in heaven until things turned sour. Citing irreconcilable differences, Madonna filed for a divorce from Guy in 2008.
