In an effort to squelch the rampant rumors surrounding the state of her 7 year marriage to Guy Ritchie, Madonna had her longtime publicist, Liz Rosenberg, release an official statement to People magazine denying that the couple are planning to divorce or that she has been having an affair with Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees (or anyone else for that matter). Here is the full text of Madonna‘s official statement to People magazine:
“Madonna’s husband Guy arrived in New York last night to be with his wife and family. There are no plans for Madonna and Guy to divorce. Madonna and Alex have the same manager, Guy Oseary. They have met. They know each other and Madonna took her kids to a Yankees game last week. There’s really not anything to comment on beyond that. It’s nothing new that people are airing tons of dirty laundry Madonna’s way lately – much of it untrue. By the way, rumors of Madonna and Lil Wayne are quite exaggerated as well.
And that, folks, should be that … at least for a little while. I’m glad OPTION C turned out to be the right reason for Guy‘s arrival in NYC last night. While I’m sure that the constant divorce rumors are a pain in the ass to deal with all the time, I’m sure a PR savvy svengali like Madonna can at least appreciate the extra press that she is “enjoying”, especially in light of her upcoming world tour.
