According to the Daily Mail, the 16-year-old took a dig at his famous mom, 58, after she posted a video of herself, son David, 11, and daughter Mercy, 10, participating in the viral mannequin challenge in the dining room of their New York City home. Below the since-deleted clip — in which Madge, 58, kept her face frozen with food hanging from her mouth — Rocco allegedly wrote, “So glad I don’t live there anymore.”

The teen’s alleged comment comes amid reports that he was arrested for possession of marijuana in London in September. Despite Rocco’s alleged legal troubles, his mother said in a statement on November 23 that she plans to stick by his side.

“I love my son very much,” the pop icon told the Associated Press. “I will do whatever I can to give him the support that he needs, and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”

Madonna and Rocco’s relationship has experienced many ups and downs this year as she and her ex-husband Guy Ritchie have tried to hash out a custody agreement. Though they have butted heads in the past, mother and son appeared to make peace with each other in mid-September, when the “Rebel Heart” singer traveled to London to help Rocco settle into school.

As of now, Madonna and Guy’s agreement allows Rocco to stay in London with his father, the British filmmaker’s new wife, Jacqui Ainsley, and their three young children.
