Madonna is going through a tough time and is caught up in the middle of a nasty family battle that involves her homeless brother Anthony Ciccone.
Ciccone, 58, claims that he is so destitute at this time of his life that he is currently living in a garage in Michigan suffering from multiple broken bones. Anthony also reveals that his mega wealthy superstar sister Madonna, 56 has completely turned her back on him despite their family reaching out in desperation to help out their troubled brother.
Madonna pleads tough love when it comes to her family according to her half-brother Mario. Madonna’s family reportedly recently held a family meeting at Tony’s vineyard near Traverse City to see if they could put their heads together and figure out a way to help Anthony. Moments later Anthony also showed up at the meeting, very drunk, with Mario immediately showing him the door.
“Sadly, the relationships appear to be beyond repair,” a source reportedly told The National ENQUIRER. “Madonna and Mario are done with Anthony forever. They don’t think he deserves any more chances.”
But now it appears that sister Paula has a soft spot for their troubled homeless brother, who she previously helped out before helping him out when he was living under a bridge in Traverse City where another vagrant was killed.
Anthony however believes his family is just being cruel to him stating that: “The ironic thing is my family thinks I chose this lifestyle. It’s not the case. The truth is [Madonna] doesn’t care if I’m dead. I doubt she’d even recognize me.”
Anthony claims that Madonna has completely turned her back on him revealing that he has not seen his sister in years. Do you think that Madonna is being unnecessarily cruel to her family considering her wealthy position, or do you believe that they should all help themselves?
