Madonna and Guy were reunited by Christmas – and Kabbalah
The season of goodwill has obviously worked its wonders on warring former couple Guy Ritchie and Madonna, who put aside their differences for a family day out at the Kabbalah centre this week.
The singer and director both visited the London-based centre at the same time on Saturday, along with children Rocco, Lourdes and David.
The couple, who have been ensconced in a drawn-out divorce battle over the last few months, called a truce for Christmas.
Madonna returned to England the day before Christmas Eve – for the first time since the couple split.
She met her husband in London to hand over their sons. Minutes later Guy headed for the £10 million Ashcombe House estate, which he has taken ownership of as part of their divorce settlement.
The boys and Guy enjoyed a traditional family Christmas, while Lourdes and Madonna – who doesn’t celebrate the holiday – remained in London.
On Boxing Day, Guy returned the boys to Madonna’s house, and stayed there until the next day, when he returned to his central London flat to freshen up for the Kabbalah visit.
After visiting the centre, situated off London’s Oxford Street, Madonna headed for dinner at trendy eaterie Locanda Locatelli with her best pal Gwyneth Paltrow, who’s been a constant source of support since Madge announced her split from Guy.
There’s nothing like a girlie dinner to cheer you up, but it’s great the former couple – who are yet to finalise custody arrangements – can be civil for the sake of the children.
