Madonna‘s ex-boyfriend, the father of her 12-year-old daughter Lourdes, was interviewed by Hello! magazine about Madonna and Guy Ritchie‘s divorce. Carlos Leon, a celebrity personal trainer-turned-actor says, “It is a bad situation for both Guy and Madonna and I send them a lot of love and all the children involved. I think it is too early to say if the divorce will make things better or worse for the family.” About Ritchie, he added: “Guy is the gent. He always treats me with respect. Of the film work of the two, I like Ritchie better. He is incredibly talented as a director and producer and he inspires me.” Leon goes on to say that he speaks to his daughter, Lourdes, every day. “She is very talented, she gets that from her mom. She has had advantages I never had. But it is up to her to take it to a new level in singing or acting.” In this photo taken earlier this year, an apparently angry Leon has just picked a terrified-looking Lourdes up from her mom’s place, presumably to spend quality with him (and his accomplice).
