Madonna has spent the last several months submerged in a war no parent ever wants to find themselves battling: fighting for custody over her son, Rocco John Ritchie.
The 57-year-old singer went to court with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, in December to maintain her partial guardianship over her 15-year-old son.
At the time, a New York Supreme Court judge ruled that Rocco was to return to be with his mother after living in London with his dad. However, Ritchie's attorney reportedly said the teen had "expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York." The judge suggested the teenager talk to Madonna about it and later revisit the issue.
Well, over two months later and it appears her son has not changed his mind. Madonna continues to fight for his return, using social media to gain affection, despite the fact that he has since blocked her and deleted all of his accounts.
Madge has shared many photos of her son throughout their time apart, writing heart-wrenching messages about her love for Rocco and giving the world a little insight on the difficult battle she's facing:
