Guy Ritchie's Lonely New Year

Guy Ritchie's Lonely New Year

As a regular couple, breaking up is already hard to do, so imagine because half of a super famous couple. You can't leave the house, turn on the tv, or go to the grocery store without seeing photos of your ex splashed all over the place--especially if your ex is Madonna.

Despite reports that Guy Ritchie has already moved, the former Mr. Madonna spent New Years Eve all by his lonesome self.

Ritchie spent the New Year at the former couple's Ashcombe House mansion in Wiltshire, England, while Madonna took their three children to Indian Ocean paradise the Maldives.

Their marriage officially ended on Saturday January 3rd, just a couple weeks past what would have been their eight-year anniversary. And apparently Guy wasn't taking the holidays that well.

One insider tells British tabloid The People, "Guy was on a real downer over New Year and just wanted to be alone to think. He watched TV, had a few beers and then had an early night.

"He's been quite bullish throughout the divorce and when out with the lads he gives the impression that he is relieved to be a free man again. He was surprised at how friendly and natural it felt. I suppose it got him wondering whether they could have handled things differently."

No one said dating (or breaking up with) Madonna was going to be easy. It's a good thing Guy has new girlfriend, millionaire heiress Jemima Khan to keep him busy in the next few months. Where was she on New Years?
