Madonna’s divorce settlement with Guy Ritchie is estimated to be worth up to £60 million. Initial reports suggested the British director would receive no cash from the singer’s estimated £300 million fortune, but Madonna claims he will now get a mixture of money and property. Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s official spokesperson, said: “I’d assume it’s one of the largest payouts ever in a divorce settlement.” Rosenberg claims the final amount will be between £49 million and £60 million, and will include the couple’s Ashcombe House estate in Wiltshire and their West London pub, The Punch Bowl – together worth an estimated £12.5 million.

But word is getting out his new album is sounding brilliant and the Take That reunion coverage has helped. His next deal could be a record-breaker.” Robbie, whose next LP is due for release on EMI in September 2009, could follow Madonna, U2 and Jay-Z and sign a mega-deal with concert promoters Live Nation. Now that his career is on the up I wonder if Robbie will still be joining his old Take That buddies?
