Sweet and sad. Madonna posted a recent photo with son Rocco on Friday, December 25, amid her custody war with ex Guy Ritchie.

“Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life!” the pop queen, 57, captioned the candid snap with Rocco, 15.

On Wednesday, December 23, the “Material Girl” singer reportedly planned to go to court after her eldest son refused to board a plane back to NYC. He had been visiting Ritchie, 47, in London at the time.

That day, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan ordered Rocco to come back to the United States. However, the British film director’s own attorney pushed back.

“Rocco has expressed very clearly that he does not want to return to New York," attorney Eric Buckley told Kaplan in the hearing.

The pop icon’s son had also been accompanying her on her current Rebel Heart World Tour.
