Madonna's Brother Is Homeless
While Madonna kicks back in her newly renovated $32 million NYC townhouse and her homes in Los Angeles and London, her second eldest brother is living under a bridge and on the streets of Michigan.
Anthony Ciccone, 55, has opened to local news site The Michigan Messenger in an interview that addresses the influx of homeless flocking to Traverse City because of its generous meal program and shelter program.
"My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time," said Ciccone, who grew up in Rochester Hills, Mich. along with his six siblings including his multiplatinum music artist sister, 53. "You think I haven't answered this kind of question a bazillion times -- why my sister is a multibazillionaire, and I'm homeless on the street? Never say never. This could happen to anybody."
Ciccone attributes his status to losing his job at his father's Suttons Bay winery over a year ago.
