Madonna’s ex speaks out on divorce

lourdes1.jpgMadonna‘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).

    I’d be pissed too, if I went to pick up my 12 year old daughter and this was the type of clothing she was wearing…and she’d be looking terrified until she changed them!!

    Agree, Kaiya, the clothing is non-descript, at best, no worries there. Leon’s t-shirt on the other hand…unattractive and juvenile.

    A “terrified-looking” Lourdes? Guess she’s looking at his t-shirt too ha ha

    What a spin they put on things

    I’d be embarrassed to be walking with a guy who looks like that. The poor kid is probably mortified to be seen in public with him. And what’s with his fat girlfriend, busting out of her dollar store clothes? She’s desperately in need of a hairstyle.

    What a creepy pic, she looks like she’s being abducted!

  5. Jo-Anne. • December 17, 2008 @ 1:19 PM

    I don’t find it creepy at all, far from it. She’s most likely just spied the 5,000 media photographers perched on the roof who very desperately follow her mom’s and her family’s every step……

  6. tributegirl • December 17, 2008 @ 1:27 PM

    Maybe, but she’s looking directly at her father, who looks totally p1ssed about something. Just the way he has her by the hand and seems to be storming off somewhere, and the look on her face, that’s what I find creepy about it. Or maybe it’s the fat broad that has her by the wrist that I find creepy.

    Nah, it’s those big, white, square glasses. The kid is probably telling her daddy that although the ugly glasses match her thigh highs, they mostly just crimp her style.

  8. tributegirl • December 17, 2008 @ 1:45 PM

    They match that, um, lovely (?) skirt!

    i’m not a believer of “a picture is worth a thousand words”. yes, it’s possible they could’ve had an argument but i bet they’re just looking annoyed because of the people we can’t see in the photograph – the paparazzi.

  10. Nancy • December 17, 2008 @ 5:22 PM

    I’m telling you, he’s pissed cause she’s wearing a hoochie skirt and stripper stockings! She gets that from her mother too…is probably what he’s thinking. 😛

    interesting, an article before this one, reports the annual survey of children under ten list being fat as their number one fear, yet casual comments, sadly by an adult resort to insulting descriptives as the fat broad above. Actually, a double insult in the use of both words, very poor example to set for impressionable minds to label people as such.

  12. Nancy • December 17, 2008 @ 7:20 PM

    Hmmm….I get the impression “someone” is a little sensitive about their weight…???? 😛

  13. tributegirl • December 18, 2008 @ 6:39 PM

    Yup, I called her fat, because she is. And I’m glad kids today fear being fat, maybe they will be more inclined to take care of their health. And if anyone on here has a mind that is that impressionable, well, not my problem.

    his accomplice? what are they kidnappers,robbers or something? get your words right. it’s Accompanier.

  15. demigod • December 20, 2008 @ 11:15 PM

    It’s easy reading too much into a snapshot.
    Is that a faint ‘stache on Lourdes? Must be all that italian in her lol.

  16. Carlos Leon • December 21, 2008 @ 7:20 PM

    Let’s go Lourdes!
    We are late for the Jerry Springer taping!

    The topic: Skanky daughters who take after their magalomaniacal mothers and their one shot at fame porno fathers and the fat ugly cows who hang on to them in thick and thin.

  17. Jo-Anne. • December 21, 2008 @ 8:43 PM

    demigod, your first sentence says it all, for sure.

  18. tributegirl • December 22, 2008 @ 11:14 AM

    Carlos Leon, you’re hilarious!

  19. mandee • December 23, 2008 @ 2:04 PM

    this pic is stupid lol the kid looks like a white trash welfare case, the dad looks like a grease monkey, and the fat one, well apparently, looks fat lol. which i wasnt aware was a big deal, or a crime, or that she really had anything to do with any of this lol. my whole family is pretty much all fat people 😛 so im allowed to be offended for them lol. but still, i still think shes fat

  20. tributegirl • December 27, 2008 @ 6:39 PM

    Nah, being fat isn’t a big deal or a crime for sure, I have some fat people in my family too, but I just wanted to insult the woman in the pic, I just don’t like the look of her, and the way she has hold of a child who is not her own…well, if anyone had hold of my kid like that, I’d be freaking out.

  21. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 8:04 PM

    So, should I put a “fat comment” on here for ya, Jo-Anne?
