Typically, when one is tasking one's publicist with the announcement of just about the biggest divorce payout ever made to an ex-husband, one wouldn't claim two days later, "Ooops, clicked 'send' too early!"
However, that's exactly what Madonna is trying to pull after her own rep, Liz Rosenberg, released figures to the tune of $76 million to $92 million on Monday. Now, Madonna and Guy Ritchie are fighting this rampant, inaccurate misinformation put out by, uh, themselves:
"We have tried to maintain a dignified silence regarding the details of our divorce for the last few months whilst accepting the obvious media interest," their statement reads. "A misleading and inaccurate statement, specifically in relation to the sums of money involved, was wrongly issued...this week.
"The financial details of the settlement will remain private, save to say that both of us are happy with our agreement. Our primary concern, like any co-parents, is the care and well-being of our children."
So did a renegotiation go down? We're not sure, but we hope that Ritchie is ribbing the Material Girl with the appropriate taunt: "Save as draft, Madonna, save as draft."
