Guy Ritchie has reportedly told estranged wife Madonna her raunchy photo shoots are embarrassing their children
Guy Ritchie has reportedly told Madonna her raunchy photo shoots are embarrassing their children.
Pictures published this week from W magazine show the 50-year-old singer in a series of intimate poses with model Jesus Luz but her estranged husband believes she should stop posing provocatively for the sake of the three kids they raise together.
A source said: "Guy was shocked by Madonna's recent half-naked photos. He told her it could embarrass the kids at school. Then he joked that she should be over that sort of thing now.
"Madonna had a total meltdown about it - not only because she's strict on what kind of media and external influences the children should be exposed to but because she hates Guy commenting on what she does as an artist."
Guy is also said to be unhappy with Madonna's strict rules which ban their children from watching TV. The 40-year-old filmmaker believes Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight and three-year-old David need to be better prepared for life in the "real world".
The source added to Closer magazine: "Guy's worried the kids won't be prepared for the real world if they grow up under strict control - he doesn't want them to live in a bubble.
"He's told Madonna that when the kids go over to other people's houses they should be allowed more freedom. He says if he knows what the kids are watching on TV he can at least help them understand and discuss what they see."
