Madonna Shares Touching Throwback Photo of Her Children and Quotes Drake Amid Custody Battle Over Son Rocco
"Riding with my Woes!! Seems like yesterday," the singer wrote of her heartwarming photo
Gang’s all here!
In the midst of a contentious custody battle with ex-husband Guy Ritchie over their son Rocco Ritchie, Madonna shared a sweet photo of her family via Instagram on Thursday. “Riding with my Woes!! Seems like yesterday,” the singer, 57, writes in the caption, quoting Drake’s song “Know Yourself.”
The 2015 track from the rapper’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late release finds Drake dismissing opponents. “Pray the real live forever, man,” he raps in the first verse. “Pray the fakes get exposed.”
Madonna’s image shows the singer smiling as she exits a building with her four children – Lourdes, 19, Rocco, 15, David, 10, and Mercy, 9 – in 2011.
Madonna’s oldest son Rocco has been staying with Ritchie, 47, in London. Despite a judge in the U.S. reportedly ordering Rocco to return to New York City to be with his mother, the teen remained in the U.K. with his father over the holidays.
“He should have been home already,” a source close to the singer told PEOPLE, alleging that Rocco has missed some school. “Madonna is a devoted mother, and a big priority is her children’s education.”
A second custody hearing is scheduled for Feb. 3 in New York.
