Madonna is having Kabbalah “anger management” counselling to deal with her rage at estranged husband Guy Ritchie.
The singer has been accompanied on the North American leg of her Sticky and Sweet tour by a counsellor representing the mystical offshoot of Judaism, of which she is a follower.
A source close to Madonna told The Sun newspaper: “She has turned to Kabbalah to sooth her rage, and is getting intense counselling on the road and at the Kabbalah Centre in New York.
“The counsellor is telling her she will meet her soulmate — but first has to calm her anger.”
Madonna, 50, is reportedly set to fly from Toronto – where she performed last night (23.10.08) – to New York this weekend to visit the city’s Kabbalah centre.
She was spotted leaving the same centre during another
short break in her world tour last week.
The source added: “Madonna is very angry with Guy – about his cold treatment of her in the marriage, about the nasty details of their marriage that have leaked out, and about the money he is demanding.”
Madonna has claimed the British film director “emotionally abandoned” her, and friends believe the turning point in their marriage came with Guy’s allegedly unsympathetic reaction after she fell from a horse in 2005, breaking several bones.
Rumours linking Madonna to New York Yankees baseball star Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez were fuelled last night after it was reported he was to fly out and see her perform in Toronto.
Guy, 40, was said to be “in pieces” this week after he saw pictures of the couple’s son Rocco, eight, wearing a New York Yankees T-shirt in what appeared to be an attack on him by Madonna.
Guy and Madonna raise two other children, Lourdes, 12 and David Banda, three.
The couple’s lawyers are presently working out details of their divorce.
