Madonna shared an emotional throwback picture of her son Rocco amidst the custody battle drama between her and ex-husband Guy Ritchie.

Rocco has been living with his father since he refused to return to America after spending Christmas with his movie director dad, despite a New York judge ruling that the 15-year-old should return.

So heartbroken Madonna has posted on her Instagram a picture of Rocco on her back as a baby, with the words, ‘Tu me manqué,’ which is French for ‘I miss you.’

She followed it up with an image containing a Lewis Carroll quote from Alice in Wonderland: ‘Alice: How long is forever? White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.’ Madonna captioned it with an hour glass emoji.
