London, June 26 : Madonna and Guy Ritchie's marriage is close to collapsing, with reports surfacing that the couple sleep in separate rooms, and pals fearing that the two are "like ships passing in the night."
The pop queen and her director hubby had a romantic three-day break together in Milan, Italy, but slept in separate rooms.
While they were there Guy, 39, spent most of his time working on a new commercial with Hollywood star George Clooney.
And Madge, 49, visited fashion designers to arrange costumes for her forthcoming tour.
"They had completely separate rooms, schedules, everything. It is all very well organized but it's not a marriage the way most people understand it," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"They have this attitude like 'we're not really a couple but we're friends and we love each other and raise our kids.' "But the truth is they p*** each other off, don't agree on anything, don't see each other or live 'together' as they did.
"They are like ships passing in the night," the source added.
After three days in Milan, Madonna jetted over to New York to rejoin kids Lourdes, ten, Rocco, six, and adopted two-year-old David.
The source added: "Most couples would have made the most of the romantic city but there was hardly any contact between them. Madonna quickly flew back to NY to join her kids."
