Where's That Guy?

As we all know by now, Madonna was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this week and in all the hoopla surrounding her induction (the rambling speech gave by Justin Timberlake -- who did the inducting, Madonna's seemingly endless acceptance speech, the raucous performance by Iggy Pop and The Stooges) there wasn't much immediate mention of the fact that Madonna's husband, Guy Ritchie, was nowhere to be seen on Maddy's big night ... which of course now has tongues wagging that the couple is headed for splitsville ... again:

Guy Ritchie's absence from Madonna's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Monday did little to quash rumors of marital strife between the couple. The Ritchies have been noticeably absent from each other's events lately, and haven't been photographed together in public since January. But Monday wasn't just any night for Madonna. So ... where the heck was Guy? Madge's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, told us yesterday that Ritchie was 'making a film in London' during his wife's big moment. "They spoke right after her induction via phone," she added. According to, Ritchie's latest film, "RocknRolla," is categorized as "completed." He has no other projects in the works, per the online movie database.

Hmmm ... I can't imagine that any project, whether it was completed or not, would keep any loving husband away from an event where his wife was being inducted into something as prestigious as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Unlike previous instances where marital strife was alleged, this latest incident really does sound like something is up betwixt the two of them this time around, as the following report suggests:

Madonna and hubby Guy Ritchie are giving each other plenty of personal space lately — like separate continents. While the apparent estrangement doesn't necessarily mean it's over, In Touch reports friends and family are concerned. "They are not spending any time together," Guy's father John told the magazine. "Madonna and the kids are rushing around like mad and Guy wants to stay in England. He is very busy." As for Madonna's busy schedule, a friend claims she wants to distract herself. "She wants to forget her troubles, even for a few days." Apparently, the troubles stem from the belief Ritchie and Madonna are "polar opposites," but the pal feels certain there are no divorce plans on the horizon. "(Madonna's) turning 50 this year and she doesn't want to start a new life." And another friend agreed, telling In Touch, "She just needed a break from Guy, but they're going to try to work it out."

Come to think of it, I don't believe that she even mentioned his name at all in her thank you speech on Monday night ... I distinctly recall that she thanked her critics, her record label, the guy who discovered her in NYC (the one she did a "tab of ectacy" with when they met), her co-writers and producers, her fans, her publicist, her managers, her ballet teacher from Detroit, her "soldiers" the Semtex Girls and the kitchen sink. She does thank "her teachers, her friends and her family" ... but why no shout-out to hubby Guy specifically? HMMMMM. Actually, the only "Guy" she mentioned by name was her current manager Guy Oseary. HMMMMM. I get that they are each "very bizzy" with their own projects but this behavior seems very suspect. I'd really hate to see this family break up ... dividing the kids alone would be a nightmare. [Source, Source]
