Madonna wants to seem like she is carefree and a rebel, however it looks like the singer is not heartless at all and has a soft spot for her brother. After trying to stay out of his business for a while, the 58 year old diva could not help but intervene, trying to save Martin Ciccone, who is struggling with alcohol addiction.
Her troubled brother was caught drinking alcohol at 10 in the morning in Los Angeles just last month. Drinking in the morning is definitely a worrisome sign of addiction.
Robert Ciccone has an entire history with addiction that resulted in many incidents with the law. The 59 year old brother of Madonna went through DUI arrests, alcohol abuse and was in rehab multiple times. In 2013, the man seemed to be able to get over his drinking problems and was sober for a while. His relationship with Madonna was good at that time and she even bought him a set of new teeth.
After failing to remain sober and starting his destructive routine again in 2015, the siblings lost contact with each other, until recently, when the diva decided to once again return to her brother’s side.
“After Madonna learned that Martin was back at the bottle, she finally reached out to him to try and help,” said an insider.
“Martin told his sister that he is trying to get sober and she said that she would support him if he agreed to enter treatment again. She even told him that she would even be willing to pay for it,” added the source.
Madonna seems to be thinking more about her brother’s struggle with addiction lately because her son Rocco Richie has a similar problem. The teen was arrested recently in London for possessing marijuana.
The diva understands how difficult it is to go through something like that now more than ever, and her inability to help her son pushed her to try and reach out to her brother instead.
