Madonna Finalizes Custody Battle

We gotta give it to Madonna and Guy Ritchie for keeping their divorce as civil as possible when it comes to their children.

The couple just finalized their custody battle in the U.S. after a hearing at Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday. The children will remain with Madonna in New York with regular visits to their father in the U.K.

The kids will also spend time in the U.K. during school holidays, but Madonna's 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship, will remain in New York full time with her mother.

While Madonna and Guy quickly settled their divorce and custody arrangements, we're sure her kids are a little confused about Mom's new boyfriend, 23 year-old Jesus Luz.

He's been accompanying them everywhere lately and he's young enough to be her son. We hope that when she tires of him, there isn't another man in the picture for a while, at least for the sake of the kids.
