The stress of the bad publicity from the Alex Rodriguez divorce and the mountains of dirt dished in brother Chriptopher Ciccone's new tell-all is apparently catching up with Madonna. The British tabloids report the Queen of Pop is having a meltdown, displaying violent mood swings, "firing two dancers and her tour manager is threatening to walk out over her spectacular moods." From The Sun:
A source in her camp said: “Madonna is doing less than OK. She has been rehearsing for the tour and she is totally miserable.
“She’s down physically and mentally. The situation with Guy is very, very tense. The way the press are going crazy with the A-Rod story, her brother’s book and her physical exhaustion are all taking their toll.
“She feels nobody has taken her side. One of her closest pals says she has never seen Madonna so low. She has been feeling low and looking really gaunt.
The Sun reports Madge has a doctor, physiotherapist and a chiropractor on duty during rehearsals and this week they ordered her to take it easy with the dance routines forthcoming Sticky & Sweet world tour.
Meanwhile, no complaints from Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone. Life with My Sister Madonna debuted last week and is now number 57 on Amazon, after peaking at number 13. Writing the book "was like a giant fucking orgasm", he says.& ;
