Madonna, Rocco Ritchie


When it comes to sharing her feelings, Madonna is an open book. 

The 57-year-old mother of four has been fighting to maintain her partial guardianship of her oldest son, 15-year-old Rocco John Ritchie, whom she has shared with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie since their divorce in 2008.

The battle ignited in December when Rocco refused to return to the United States after living with his director father in London. While a New York Supreme Court judge ruled at the time that the teenager should return home to his mom, Ritchie's lawyer chimed in to say that Rocco didn't want to come back. The judge then suggested that the teen take up his concerns with his mom. 

Clearly, little progress has been made. Despite her son blocking her on Instagram and deleting his account altogether, Madge continues to make subtle pleas to her son on her own account with weekly nostalgic shots of him in all phases of his life. 

Just a day ago, Madonna shared her freshest tribute to Rocco with an old photograph of him wearing a floral necklace and smiling with his curly hair surrounding his face.

"I miss this boy so full of life so full of love ! I hope we see that Leo Sun soon. The light is blinding!" she captioned the candid shot. 

A few hours before that, she issued another message to her fans seemingly regarding her battle to win back her child. "The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most."

While it has been a bumpy road between the singer and her son, they may soon arrive at a resolution as both Madonna and her ex-husband are slated to be back at New York Supreme Court for a hearing on March 2.

Until then, it seems this mama will preach until her child hears her loud and clear.
