Madonna And Ritchie Custody Battle In Court

The dispute between Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie over their 15-year-old son Rocco is being considered by a judge at the High Court.

Mr Justice MacDonald is considering the case in a private hearing in London where he said it is his "fervent hope" that the pair can reach an "amicable resolution".

A number of other legal issues were considered at a previous hearing and similar ones have taken place in New York following the launch of family court litigation in the US.

The fact that the hearing has taken place in London can be reported but no details can be publicised.

A judge in New York has heard that Rocco is living with his father in England with his wife Jacqui Ainsley and their three children.

Lawyers last week told Mr Justice MacDonald that Madonna wanted the teenager to return to live with her in the US and had issued an application in England under an international legal convention.

They said the singer now wanted to withdraw that application and bring the legal proceedings launched in England to a close.

The judge said last week that he had to decide whether the proceedings launched by Madonna in England should end - or whether he should make decisions on Rocco's welfare.

"It would be my fervent hope that discussions between the parties can reach an amicable resolution," Mr Justice MacDonald told the court last week.

"An amicable negotiated resolution is definitely the way forward and in Rocco's best interests."

A judge in New York is analysing issues relating to the custody of Rocco - and those proceedings have already been widely reported in the media.

She has also urged Madonna and Mr Ritchie to reach agreement.

Madonna was not at Thursday's hearing - and was not at last week's hearing.
