London, October 18 : Madonna's brother Christopher Ciccone has said that her sister's devotion towards Kabbalah is the main reason behind her split with hubby Guy Ritchie.
Ciccone, who has written a detailed book on his big sis, further said that there is barely any chance of their reunion.
"The Kabbalah sect, to which Madonna is completely devoted, played a large role in this marriage," the Sun quoted him as telling the German newspaper 'Bild'.
"It was based on it. And that is not enough on which to base a marriage and it couldn't have survived.
"As for a reconciliation - I really don't think so. With two such ambitious and headstrong personalities, it would just be too hard," he added.
The gay interior decorator also added that Guy was the only 'difficult' lads in Madonna's life with whom he had a big falling.
He said: "He is not the easiest guy to get along with. We don't really see eye to eye. I really have no idea what my sister loved about him. I suppose I could have tried to stop her. But I always wanted to welcome those people whom Madonna let into her life. Whether it was Warren Beatty, Sean Penn, or Carlos Leion.
"They were and are good friends of mine. Guy was the first who couldn't bear how close Madonna and I were."
