    The mad world of Madonna: Grains for every meal, rice milk, no TV and sleeping in a plastic suit covered in £500 cream


    Steak-and-kidney pie made her leave the room in disgust: Madonna was a domestic tyrant


    The gossips at Cannes were agog this spring at the news that Madonna had installed twin treadmills in her hotel suite, apparently so she and Guy Ritchie could work out side by side. Things in the world's most talked-about marriage, it was reasoned, must not be so bad if they were at least continuing to share a passion for gym. But that second treadmill was in fact for personal trainer Tracy Anderson who, for the past year, has been living in Madonna's London home and playing far more of a role in her life than her soon-to-be-ex-husband.

    Guy and Madonna slept in separate rooms on that break, as had become usual, and were by then communicating only via their personal assistants. The treadmills are a neat metaphor for the way Ritchie has been excluded from Madonna's life. Her irrational food fads and increasingly bizarre attempts to hold back time - via surgery, exercise and every therapy going - certainly helped to doom their marriage. How could anyone expect Ritchie, a macho man who is fond of the pub and likes to shoot pheasant, to dine contentedly every night on quinoa grains and organic vegetable dumplings? And how was he supposed to react when his wife took to retiring at night slathered in £500-a-pot cream and covered in a plastic body-suit to hold back the signs of ageing?

    For instance, gossips claim his Christmas meal was minus chipolata sausages last year because she would not hear of processed meat crossing the threshold. He had to drink his tea every day with rice milk, as dairy is banned.

    Close: Madonna and her personal trainer Tracy Anderson work out together daily

    Guy apparently used to complain that she was giving her children an unhealthy
    attitude towards food: she banned sugar entirely, which made biscuits, ice creams and cakes objects of almost otherworldly fascination for her daughter Lourdes and their son Rocco. She also banned cheese, cream, salt and preservatives. One in Guy's camp suggested to me that Her Madgeness had to be talked into permitting Rocco to have a birthday cake last year.

    Even when the pair went out for 'romantic' meals - and in the final two years of the relationship this was one of the few activities they shared - Madonna would generally refuse to eat anything. No wonder Guy bought himself a pub in February. And, sources insist, the food was not even the worst of Guy's daily miseries as Mr Madonna.

    Guy Ritchie today: The director wasn't allowed to eat sausages at Christmas

    Her exercise routine, never less than two hours a day, six days a week, rules her life. .


    'There are no short cuts to being Madonna.' The star whose ambitions have propelled her from obscurity to fame and a £315million fortune regards 'being Madonna' as roughly equivalent to running a multi-national company. And she thinks her extraordinary body is its main asset. For this reason Tracy Anderson, who has helped her to build muscles with her own variant on aerobics and pilates, probably sees more of Madonna than anyone else. After breakfast in London, Madonna would spend a short time at her computer before going to the £6million property next door which houses her gym and working out with Tracy, a pint-sized American blonde whose sweet smile masks a formidable drive. Madonna started working out properly around the time of the Blond Ambition tour in 1990. She met Carlos Leon, the father of Lourdes, while jogging around Central Park.

    As a fitness instructor, that meant they always had something - apart from sex - in common, and they remain close friends. While pregnant with Lourdes she would do 45 minutes on a Stairmaster every day. Pilates was her next enthusiasm, then the more vigorous Ashtanga yoga. She also jogs, pumps iron and swims, and for a period tried a brutal looking wooden rack known as 'Gyrotonic expansion' designed to stretch and tone muscles. As a result of all this she has recurring back and knee problems, and tours with a chiropractor and physiotherapist. In concert in the U.S. yesterday, she sported two enormous plasters on her knees. 'People talk about Kabbalah, but her one fanatical devotion is to her body,' said an associate.

    Despite visits to various fertility clinics in Los Angeles, and following Kabbalah teachings to help them, she failed to become pregnant. It was a source of deep disappointment to them both, and brought Madonna's insecurities about her age (and the ten-year gap between her and Guy) to the fore. But, within months, Madonna abandoned Ritchie to his martial arts and went back to yoga and pilates. A plan slowly took hold to adopt a child instead - and we all know how that turned out.

    Now she is on tour, she looks exhausted and grey-faced. Her knee is strapped up between dates. Some plastic surgery - allegedly done this summer although she denies it - is unpleasantly obvious. And because she is so very thin - a stone and a half lighter than when she had her first hit 25 years ago - downy hair is growing on her face.

    Now, you can bet, Guy Ritchie is already looking forward to openly eating his first sausage rolls in almost a decade.
