Ritchie buys home near Madonna

Director Guy Ritchie has reportedly splashed out on a new home around the corner from ex-wife Madonna's London property - so he can be nearer to his two sons.

The pair ended their eight-year marriage back in November and now share custody of eight-year-old son Rocco, and three-year-old David Banda, who they adopted from Malawi back in 2006.

The director resides in Wiltshire while Madonna is based in New York, although she regularly jets into the UK to spend time at her London home.

And now Ritchie has decided to be closer to his sons when they're in the country - and has spent millions on a townhouse near to the singer's central London residence, reports The Sun.
