London, Oct 17 : Guy Ritchie's mum has said that she knew her son's marriage to the pop queen was doomed from the start - and insisted he already knew risks of marrying the singer.
According to the Mirror, Lady Amber Leighton, 66, told a friend: "Guy chose to take this route, he knew what he was doing when he married her and got involved with that end of the market.
"He knew when he got into this relationship it was the price he would have to pay. It was inevitable. It's sad to watch any relationship go downhill. But that couldn't go on. I know who Guy is and it didn't take much to see who she is, and it couldn't work.
"It's going to take Guy longer than he bargained for to get over it. He didn't know what it feels like, and he's about to find out.
"It's unfortunate but he had some idea of what he was doing when he wed her.
"It will take time and I think Guy is very unhappy the marriage has ended this way.
"Those feelings won't go away quickly. He reckons he'll be OK when the lawyers have finished, but it doesn't work like that. Divorce is hideous for everybody."
Guy and Madonna announced on Wednesday they were to divorce.
