Pop diva Madonna stunned fans on the latest leg of her Rebel Heart world tour, when she dropped the c-bomb to apparently describe her ex-husband Guy Ritchie on stage.
The 57-year-old pop icon, who is currently locked in a custody battle with Ritchie over the living arrangements of their 15-year-old son Rocco, surprised the audience at her Nashville gig with her foul-mouthed outburst.
She was responding to a fan who had shouted a proposal of marriage to her from the audience, when she said. “I’m looking for a husband, not a c…. I already married a c….”
Later the same evening, she posted a close-up picture of her face on Instagram, with the words “Protection we all need it” superimposed on her cheek.
She captioned the snap, “Now more than ever… evenheartsmadeoutofsteelcanbreak”.
She and her ex-husband Ritchie clashed in court just before Christmas over where Rocco would be living.
He remains in the UK with his father.
The pair were married for eight years before divorcing in 2008. Madonna has faced some bad press over the last week, where she was accused of being drunk onstage during her Louisville concert, a claim she flatly denied.
