Madonna, Guy Ritchie 'Reaching Settlement' In Son's Custody Battle

Having refused to back down from her custody war against ex-husband Guy Ritchie, Madonna is said to have agreed to a secret settlement that will allow both parents to spend a good amount of time with their 15-year-old son, Rocco.

Madonna and Guy have been caught up in a nasty legal war ever since Rocco flew out to London and refused to return back to New York City. The singer was outraged with the news that her son was unwilling to fly back home, convinced that his father's influence might have pushed him to stay in Europe and turn against the pop diva.

"They are arranging a custody agreement right now between them that will satisfy both Madonna and Guy, as well as Rocco," a source tells Radar Online, revealing that Madonna and her ex-husband want what's best for their son, who evidently makes the final call on where he wants to live.

"Madonna and Guy both want a decision to be made quietly, and they will not put it out in the media that they resolved it. But by the next court date, everything will be settled and everyone will be content."

Rocco reportedly became unhappy living with Madonna because it seemed as if the ageing songstress never had any time for her 15-year-old son, especially when she embarks on her lengthy world tours, a source reveals.

Madonna, who is allegedly willing to let Rocco spend the holidays with Guy, will most definitely make every effort possible to make sure such an incident doesn't happen again. After all, Rocco is 15 — the puberty stage is known to be the worst at that age.
