    Madonna, Ritchie settle son's custody


    SINGER Madonna and

    her ex-husband, director

    Guy Ritchie, have settled a custody dispute over their 16-year-old son Rocco,

    a court official in New York said on Wednesday.

    It was not immediately announced with which parent the teenager would live with.

    Madonna, 58, and Ritchie, 47, have been in a legal battle over their son since December, when he ignored a court order to fly back from Ritchie's London home to live with

    his mother in New York.

    The Material Girl singer

    and the director of 2009 film Sherlock Holmes married in 2000. After they divorced

    in 2008, they agreed that Rocco would live with Madonna.

    Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for the New York State court system, confirmed the case was officially settled on Wednesday but did not immediately provide

    further information.

    Details of the settlement also were not revealed in online court records.
