Things might be rocky between pop diva Madonna and her son Rocco Ritchie as the teenager recently took at dig at his mother with a harsh comment on social media. Rocco made a reference to the contentious custody battle between Madonna and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, which unfortunately the 58-year-old lost.
"So glad I don't live here anymore," the 16-year-old said in a video. According to The Sun, the Instagram video featured the Mannequin Challenge, where Rocco's famous mother and his siblings – David, 11, and Mercy, 10 – played around with food as they took part in the viral internet video trend.
The not-so-pleasant comment did not go down well with Madonna's fans, who shot back at the teenager asking why he was being mean. When someone suggested that the Mannequin challenge with food "looks like a lot of fun", Rocco posted laughing emojis in response.
As it seems, 2016 has been a tumultuous year for Rocco, who was recently held his London home for possessing near marijuana.
When the troubled teen was seen "smoking or doing drugs" with a male friend in the upmarket Primrose Hill in September, neighbours alerted the police.
"Rocco has become a well-known figure in the neighbourhood and not for the right reasons. He's been repeatedly seen acting suspiciously," a source told the newspaper shedding light on the situation. "This incident was the final straw. Local residents are fed up with him acting in this manner and called the police".
Rocco's was also involved in the acrimonious custody battle between his parents Madonna and Ritchie. Although the Rebel Heart hitmaker had to ultimately relinquish custody of her son, the mother-son duo seemed to have resolved their differences later on.
Following the legal loss, Madonna was spotted with Rocco enjoying a meal at a eatery in London. "Looking at them, you'd never guess they'd been through so much drama this summer with the custody battle. It's clear they're happy it's all over and they can get on with life," a source had said at the time.
