Guy Ritchie on the brink of quitting Kabbalah

The Times of India/June 27, 2008

London - The fractured marriage between Madonna and Guy Ritchie has hit rock bottom after the latter told the singer that he's quitting Kabbalah.

The pop queen has been religiously following the mystical Jewish religion, but her director hubby is on the verge of hitting the road after losing his faith.

According to friends, his recent revelation has widened the already expanding gap between the pair, who are leading separate lives despite officially remaining man and wife.

"Guy has turned his back on Kabbalah once and for all," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

"He has gone hot and cold on the religion in the past, but now he's given up on it altogether. It has always been her thing and is more a part of her life than ever.

"Guy threw himself into it at first and even filled his movie Revolver with obscure references to the faith.

"He was genuinely into it and it helped the bond between them. But then he backtracked a little with his gestures of public backing, like wearing the bracelet, because he didn't like being such a high-profile follower.

"He also became suspicious of all the Kabbalah crowd living off her money. But he always told Madonna he had kept his faith — until now.

"A few weeks ago he told her he doesn't want anything else to do with it. It didn't go down well," the source added.
