Madonna Battles Anemia
Madonna, who always maintains utmost composure and calmness, is reportedly headed for a meltdown. Those close to her say she's breaking down mentally and physically because of what's happened in her personal life recently.

Madge has had to fire two of her dancers, and now her tour manager is threatening to walk out on her if her mood swings continue the way they have been. And on the physical end, Madonna is suffering from anemia and a knee injury.

The source says, "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.

"Family tension with her father and two of her other siblings has also been awkward. 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. Madonna was told to go soft on work and rehearsals, so she will now take one proper day off every week and go easy in the mornings. She has a blood analysis done every few days — including one during last Friday's rehearsal in front of everyone."

Well, this just goes to show she's human. It's hard enough that she's making a comeback in her fifties, but now the press is attacking every aspect of her life. She's currently taking a mini break in the Hamptons with Gwyneth Paltrow this week. Hopefully a little R&R nurses her back to health!

In other Madonna news, we hear A-Rod just signed with William Morris Agency in LA to try to break into the world of acting. Try to contain your laughter.
