Madonna settlement 'not reached'

Pop singer Madonna is yet to reach a settlement in her divorce from film director husband Guy Ritchie, according to her publicist.

Newspaper reports had suggested the pair had reached a deal over how to share their vast fortune and custody of their children.

But in an e-mail to the Associated Press, Liz Rosenberg said a deal had not been finalised.

Guy Ritchie's representatives declined to comment on the reports.

The couple, who announced the end of their eight-year marriage last Wednesday, is reportedly worth around 300m, with the majority earned by Madonna.

Guy Ritchie is estimated to bring 20m to the total fortune. They own homes in London, Wiltshire, Los Angeles and New York.

Madonna and Ritchie married in December 2000 at Skibo Castle in the Scottish Highlands and have two sons - seven-year-old Rocco and three-year-old David Banda, who was adopted from Malawi in 2006.

Madonna also has a daughter, 12-year-old Lourdes, from a previous relationship.
