Madonna's Photo War: Battle Over Her Son Goes From Courtroom to Instagram as Singers Trades Online Pictures With Her Ex's New Wife

The battle over their teenage son became a war of the picture album for Guy Ritchie and Madonna yesterday. The former couple traded photos on the Instagram social network to try to show who had
the better Christmas.
Ritchie’s new wife Jacqui posted a picture of their wedding day in July with Rocco standing by her side smiling and the caption ‘Happy holidays with love from the Ritchies’.
Her sentimental posts comes soon after the singer described 15-year-old Rocco the 'sunshine in my life', posting a throwback snap of the pair of them.

The family appear to be in a fractious state as the teenager shared a video of his Christmas in London - as she and ex-husband Guy battle over where the teen will live.

While Rocco was flaunting his usual edgy ways by sharing a clip on Instagram showing him skateboarding on the underground, Madonna gushed about her son on the photosharing site.
Rocco appeared to be enjoying the London life as he jetted around on a skateboard, after relocating to the UK while his passport is held in the capital in the midst of the custody battle.
While the teen was sharing his video, his mother Madonna was quick to share her festive sentiment toward her beloved son.

She shared a cute throwback snap of the duo as they both enjoyed a laugh, while adding the caption: 'Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life!'
As the mother and son shared images on social media of their respective Christmases and memories, Guy's wife-of-six-months Jacqui was also taking to social media. 
The stunning model posted a throwback image of the duo's July wedding with Rocco standing beside the happy couple.
The model took to Instagram on Christmas day to share the image with the words 'Happy holidays, with love from The Richies' emblazoned upon the shot.

Jacqui's display of unity appeared to wave the flag for the Richies, where the picture also saw Madonna and Guy's adopted son David, 10, stand next to the bride and groom.
The duo's summer wedding looked idyllic with Guy wearing a straw fedora and Jacqui rocking a flower garland while Rocco stood alongside in a bowtie and braces.
Rocco is said to have grown upset after being on the road for two months on the popstar’s Rebel Heart tour where he worked backstage.
Fans are now speculating if his mother's insistence on embarrassing him by posting a catalogue of awkward photos of him online has proved to be the straw that has broken the camel's back, forcing the teen away.

He is said to have accompanied the singer for much of the trip, which included dates across the US and Canada including Vancouver, Los Angeles and Washington.
As Guy and Madonna work out the transatlantic custody dispute, their son’s passport is said to be being held for safekeeping in London by a lawyer who is representing him.
The row became public on Wednesday when Madonna, 57, went to court in New York to try and force Rocco to return to the US to spend Christmas with her.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan ruled that he has to return to America some time before the start of the new school year.

The exact source of Rocco’s frustration is not clear but Madonna has posted numerous pictures and videos of him on Instagram that could have caused him embarrassment.
In May she posted one video of him doing a back flip wearing orange underwear with the caption ‘Rocco’s preferred profile #nosausage’.
It was seen by her 4.7 million followers on the photo sharing app.
In an interview in August, Madonna said that Rocco did not want to perform on stage with her and would be working backstage on her tour as ‘your mom is not cool’ at his age.
In September Madonna gave Rocco a girly makeover and posted a picture of him with his long dyed blonde hair in bunches whilst he appeared to cringe.


A source told the New York Post: ‘The boy said he didn’t want to stay with her. He’s not getting along with his mum, which is not a surprise for a child that age’.
During the hearing at the Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday Mr Ritchie’s lawyer Eric Buckley said that Rocco has ‘expressed very clearly’ that he did not want to return to New York.
Justice Kaplan said that Rocco should fly to the US and that if he wanted to live with his father full-time he had to go and see his mother first.
Under the terms of the New York divorce Rocco and David Banda, 10, their other adopted son, will live with Madonna.

Madonna and Guy split in 2008 after eight years together.
She has said that she felt ‘incarcerated’ at times by Mr Ritchie whilst friends of his have claimed that her strict diet, Kabbalah religion and obsession with yoga made her hard to live with.
Guy's lawyer in London, Helen Ward, declined to comment, while his spokesman was unavailable.
Madonna’s lawyer in London, Fiona Shackleton, was not available for comment neither was her spokesman. 
While lawyers for both Madonna and Mr Ritchie in New York declined to comment.
