Madonna & Guy Ritchie by Jon Furniss/WireImage.com
Is there trouble in the Material Girl's paradise? Not according to Madge.
Despite speculation circulating in the press and blogosphere that
are splitting up - including news from British newspaper
that the marriage "hangs by a thread" - the pop star's rep said in a statement that the couple remain "happily married."
The rumors stem from Ritchie's absence from Madonna's United Nations fund-raiser in February and from her recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week. The rep explained that the couple has been living in separate countries while working on individual projects - Madonna touring the U.S. to promote her new album and Ritchie in England finishing his new film and working on a Nike commercial - but "now are joyfully back together at home in London" where "all is well and wonderful."
The couple have a son, 7-year-old Rocco, and Madonna has a daughter, 11-year-old Lourdes. They are also rasing a Malawian boy they want to adopt. Do you think the couple is in it for the long haul?
