Guy Ritchie reunited with kids for Father's Day weekend
Guy Ritchie has been reunited with his children for Father's Day weekend, amid a bitter custody battle over son Rocco with ex-wife Madonna.
The Like a Prayer singer and her ex-husband were due to appear before a judge in New York on Tuesday (14Jun16) to decide on the terms of the custody of their son Rocco, 15. But the hearing was adjourned hours before it was due to take place "on consent of all parties".
Madonna and her film director ex have been involved in a transatlantic custody row since last December (15) when son Rocco refused to return home to New York after staying with his British father in London.
After his mother visited him in the U.K. he has since returned to New York, and appears to be dividing his time between the U.S. city and London.
On Saturday (18Jun16) the Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director was pictured with his children from his marriage to the pop star - Rocco and adopted son David, 10 - as he packed up a gold Mercedes minibus in London for a weekend away with his family.
Rocco was seen helping his 47-year-old dad with bags of toys, clothes and sandwiches as David played with Guy's three children with his second wife, model Jacqui Ainsley. Rafael, four, Rivka, three, and Levi, two, were pictured laughing and larking around with the 10-year-old as the extended family made preparations to leave the city for a getaway.
The director's 19-year-old stepdaughter Lourdes, Madonna's daughter with actor Carlos Leon, also flew out from Los Angeles to join the Father's Day weekend trip, British newspaper the Daily Mirror reports.
