Madonna's Kids Are Over Their 'Controlling' Mom

According to a surprisingly detailed story at Page Six, Madonna’s children want little to do with their “controlling” mom. The Madonna-Guy Ritchie-Rocco saga has been ongoing and, according to unnamed sources, the recent custody disputes and Rocco’s refusal to spend time with his mother, are the result of her “micromanag[ing] his life.”

“When he’s in England, [Rocco] gets to live a low-key life . . . He can go about his business and talk to girls without paparazzi stalking him, as Guy has carved out a pretty private existence for his family. He finds making friendships in New York much more difficult. Over here, everyone [is] trying to score an invitation over to Madonna’s house.”


Rocco also seems to prefer his dad’s laid-back parenting style, a far cry from Madonna’s “hard-core macrobiotic diet,” one she makes all of her children follow.

“Sweets and chocolate are outlawed, along with dairy products, salt and preservatives. TV is banned and Lourdes got an iPhone only after turning 15. If the kids leave clothes on the floor, the items are taken away.”

And it also seems like Rocco remains unimpressed with Madonna’s career. “My 14-year-old son is absolutely not satisfied with all my accomplishments,” she told Entertainment Weekly last year. “He just wants me to cook for him.”

Basically, Madonna’s a strict mom and Rocco is a teenager. [Page Six]

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth spent New Year’s together in Australia. According to The Daily Telegraph, the two were “spotted kissing and cuddling.” Cyrus and Hemsworth were seen hanging out at the Falls Music Festival and all of the Hemsworths were there. Here’s a photo:
