Madonna was back at work Wednesday, just hours after her divorce from husband Guy Ritchie was confirmed. And while she didn't mention Ritchie by name during her show at Boston's TD Bank North Garden, she did make some comments that certainly could be about him.
Madonna opened the show with "I'm Not Sorry," and told the crowd, "That's right, I'm not sorry," according to Daily Mail.
Later in the show, before performing "Miles Away," she said, "This song is for the emotionally retarded. You may know a few people like that. God knows I do."
Earlier this year, Madonna told Elle the song is about Ritchie. "So many people have to deal with long-distance relationships," she told the magazine. "It's not easy. You have to work hard to make it work." The song includes the lyrics "When I'm gone you'll realize/ That I'm the best thing that happened to you."
The Daily Mail also reported that during Madonna's October 6 show in New York — with 29 dates left in the tour — Madonna made the comment "In exactly 29 moves, the queen will dump the king," which the paper speculated showed a plan, evidently since abandoned, on the singer's part to announce her divorce after the tour.
The Daily Mail reported that relations between the two have become so strained that they're mostly speaking through personal assistants.
"It has become so bad that they cannot be in a room together for more than a few minutes without having a shouting match," a source reportedly told the paper.
People.com reported that a source told them Ritchie is "doing fine" and relieved the news is public, and is currently back to work on his next film, "Sherlock Holmes."
Madonna has reportedly hired Fiona Shackleton and Nicholas Mostyn, the lawyers Sir Paul McCartney hired for his divorce from Heather Mills. When all is said and done, their settlement could be the largest in Britain's history.
