Madonna did not have an intervention for drinking, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s untrue.

According to Star, Madonna’s “kids staged an intervention after the 58-year-old pop star got wasted at an art exhibition in London in late October.” The tabloid quotes a so-called “close friend” as saying the singer’s oldest child, Lourdes, “was mortified.” The magazine further alleges that no one in Madonna’s camp has “the guts to confront the Material Girl about her boozy behavior,” and so Lourdes recruited her two adopted siblings, David and Mercy, to help “give their mom some tough love.”

The publication’s supposed source claims Lourdes “straight up told her it needs to stop. She’s embarrassing herself and risking more custody drama with Rocco,” Madonna’s teenaged son over whom she’s battling in court with ex-husband Guy Ritchie. The outlet’s questionable source goes on to contend the singer’s kids “suggested maybe a private rehab in Thailand to dry out, because the family isn’t going to tolerate ridiculous behavior anymore.”

First off, if Madonna’s children staged an intervention in late October, why is this suddenly emerging more than a month later? Also, it’s curious how only only Star is reporting this, and yet no one else heard about this alleged intervention? Perhaps, this can all be explained better by a source close to the singer, who exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “The writers at Star magazine need an intervention on the ridiculous stories they make up.” Boom.

Of course, Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised by the falsity of the article. Remember, this is the same tabloid we busted when it wrongly reported nearly three years ago that Madonna and Sean Penn were back together. And it’s also the same repeatedly disproven publication that we more recently debunked for its absurdly inaccurate story that claimed Rocco wanted Madonna to date Idris Elba. Much like those tall tales, whether or not you have high blood pressure, take the magazine’s stories about Madonna with a grain of salt.
