Recalling simpler moments. Madonna is currently fighting to get her son Rocco to return to her after the 15-year-old opted to stay with his father, Guy Ritchie, in London. And while court proceedings rage on, the Queen of Pop, 57, is reminiscing about life with her son.

“Days of innocence. In Malawi. How I miss this time. #rebelhearts,” Madge captioned a throwback photo of herself holding a young Rocco in her lap, with her son David next to her on one side and daughter Lourdes on the other. She added a sad emoji face along with an arrow-punctured heart, prayer hands and a red heart.

Though Rocco has been ordered by a Manhattan Civil Supreme Court judge to return to New York, the teen is still living with his director father, 47, in London.

“It’s really horrible,” a source previously told Us Weekly. “She feels incredibly hurt.”

Another insider said Madonna is worried that her ex-husband may be a bad influence on their son.

“Madonna thinks Guy is turning her son against her,” the insider told Us. “He’s telling Rocco he should stay with him. It seems like he’s trying to brainwash the kid.”
