Madonna turns to McCartney's divorce lawyer



Tbdmadonnaritchie062708 There's been a lot of scuttlebutt that Queen of Pop Madonna has been thinking about divorcing director hubby Guy Ritchie, but until now it's been mostly speculation. Now the Times of London is saying Madge has enlisted divorce lawyer Fiona Shackleton for legal advice. You know Fiona -- she's the one who helped Paul McCartney keep Heather Mills' settlement to a paltry $48 million or so.

Madonna's people wouldn't confirm the report, but a source tells the Times that this is the second lawyer the singer has gone to for information. Ritchie already has been in touch with another firm as well, the paper says. And the big issue likely to be underdiscussion? The pair are believed to not have signed a pre-nuptial agreement. That likely would get any divorce lawyer's attention.
