Madonna has reportedly told Guy Ritchie she wants a divorce.
The '4 Minutes' singer is believed to have confessed she had fallen out of love with the 'Snatch' director and Guy agreed their seven-year marriage was over.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "They were both very calm. They both knew the relationship was over. Madonna told Guy, 'I'm sorry, I want a divorce.' And he agreed. It was quite painless but very sad."
Both have reportedly spoken to divorce lawyers - Madonna is rumoured to have hired Fiona Shackleton, the lawyer who represented Sir Paul McCartney in his split from Heather Mills. Guy - who is currently staying at their Wiltshire estate, while Madonna is in New York - has taken legal advice from top London law firm Forsters.
The couple are determined the break-up will be amicable and have agreed the welfare of their children - Lourdes, 11, Rocco, seven and two-year-old David - is their top priority.
Meanwhile, Guy has also told Madonna he is quitting Kabbalah.
Although Madonna remains a staunch follower of the mystical Jewish religion Guy has lost his faith, forcing the couple even further apart.
A source said: "Guy has turned his back on Kabbalah once and for all. He has gone hot and cold on the religion in the past but now he's given it up all together."
