It's almost over and done with.
According to new documents, Madonna and Guy Ritchie will be granted a preliminary divorce decree at the High Court in London on Friday, the BBC is reporting. After six weeks and a day, their marriage of 8 years will officially be over and the divorce would be made final.
According to the British press, Madge and Guy reached a settlement -- and the Material Girl is said to be keeping most of her materials (worth an estimated $500 million). As for the kids, Rocco and David will split time between the U.S. and London, while Lourdes, whose father is Carlos Leon, will live with her mother.
"[Madonna] walked away without any of his money, much to her credit," a friend told the U.K.'s Times. "He has done the same."
"He could have hugely boosted his bank balance and set himself up for life, but he already feels he has enough money," another pal told the paper of the director. "He also didn't want the whole thing dragging on in the public gaze for months and months and, in any case, his priority was the children's future."
But a source close to the couple insists that's not true. "He's going to get a huge windfall, contrary to what's being reported," the insider told People.com. "He's getting a lot of money from the settlement. He's not the gentleman he's portraying himself as."
What do you think? Should Guy take Madge's millions?
