Madonna's divorce denial

Madonna has denied she is getting divorced.
The 'Give it 2 Me' singer has "no plans" to split from husband Guy Ritchie.
Madonna's publicist Liz Rosenberg said: "Guy arrived in New York to be with his wife and family - not in a last-ditch attempt to save his marriage, which does not need saving."
Guy, 39, flew to New York on Monday (30.06.08) to be with Madonna, 49, and children Rocco, seven, Lourdes, 11 and recently adopted David, two.
Although the singer's spokesperson is adamant the couple are not holding emergency marriage talks, a friend close to the pair is convinced they are on the verge of separating.
The source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Trust me, its over. Why else would they both consult divorce lawyers? Madonna hates being pushed into a corner and would hate other people having the satisfaction of saying 'we told you so'. The announcement will be slipped out after her tour - as planned."
After arriving in New York, Guy waited at Madonna's Central Park district apartment for her to return from rehearsals at 10.30pm on Monday.
The couple then enjoyed a candlelit meal on her roof terrace. Guy and Madonna have not been seen in public together since May and in the last week both have been spotted without their wedding rings.
Rosenberg also vehemently denies Madonna is romantically involved with married baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
Rumours were sparked after the sportsman was seen visiting the pop superstar's apartment alone, and leaving late at night.
Rosenberg said: "Madonna and Alex have the same manager, Guy Oseary. They have met. They know each other and Madonna took her kids to a New York Yankees game last week. There's really not anything to comment beyond that."
It emerged yesterday (01.07.08) that Rodriguez's marriage is also in doubt with his wife reportedly fleeing the US. He was spotted leaving his apartment without his wedding ring last night.
