Guy Ritchie reportedly threw customers out of his London pub so he could enjoy a private drinking session.
The British film director asked drinkers to leave The Punch Bowl in Mayfair at 6pm on Sunday (09.11.08) - hours before the establishment's usual closing time - so he could socialise with friends without fear of being interrupted.
One drinker told thisislondon.co.uk: "I was with a couple of friends when a member of staff came over to us and asked us to leave. When we asked why, he told us Guy wanted the venue all to himself. Everyone was a bit annoyed, but what could we do? We were given time to finish our drinks before we had to leave. They then bolted the doors so Guy could have his lock in."
Guy has been spending increasing amounts of time at the establishment since it was announced his marriage to Madonna had ended after almost eight years.
Meanwhile, the 40-year-old filmmaker enjoyed an emotional reunion with his sons Rocco, eight, and three-year-old David Banda at London's Gatwick airport on Monday morning (10.11.08).
The boys have been in America with Madonna - who is currently completing her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour - and looked delighted to see Guy, with Rocco running into his father's arms.
Madonna and Guy are said to be battling over where their children should be raised, with the 50-year-old singer adamant they should live in America and Guy determined for them to stay in the UK.
Last week, it was reported Guy has hired top divorce lawyer Stephen Cobb, an expert in cases where the country of residence of children is being disputed.
