Rocco Ritchie's mom is based in the United States and his dad lives in London.
It's not the most shocking thing ever to hear that Rocco, who turned 16 in August, wants to be living with his father at the moment. At such a pivotal age, where teenage angst finds you even if you don't go looking for it, a boy could just need his father.
But if your mom is Madonna, the choice to live with Dad instead of Mum may sound like a bigger deal to those paying attention to the ups and downs of the "Vogue" artist's personal life.
And since it took nine months for Madonna to hammer out an agreement with Rocco's father, Guy Ritchie, who since divorcing the pop icon in 2008 has had three more children with wife Jacqui Ainsley, it started to sound as if more unusual issues were at play than your average "I want to live with Dad" conversation.
