Madonna Forced Ex-Hubby Guy Ritchie's Circumcision

Guy Ritchie forced to endure the unkindest cut of wonder they split!

Almost buried in a 5,000-word piece about Madonna and her relationship with Kabbalah in the current issue of New York magazine is an alarming fact: Madonna demanded that Guy Richie get circumcised at age 39. Yes, you heard right.

The article deals with the organization's rather loose financial practices, but three-quarters of the way through is an alarming revelation from one of the Kabbalah Center's founders: "Madonna keeps a kosher home, she observes the Sabbath, she had her son and her husband Guy Richie circumcised in 2008."

I don't know how your math skills are, but that would make the Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director 39 years old when he had the procedure done - which, for the uninitiated, is the surgical removal of some or all of the foreskin from the penis, which is more routinely done on infants. Could it be a coincidence that was the very same year the couple divorced?

No, we didn't think so. Maybe Brahim Zaibat read the entire New York article and that's why he, how-you-say, cut Madonna out of his life before she er...cut him. According to a report in the Daily Mail, the 24-year-old French break dancer who was raised in the Muslim faith split with Madonna, 52, for "religious reasons." Wouldn't this qualify as that?
