She has even ordered Guy a special personalised rifle for his birthday in September. "The whole relationship now is just unbelievable. Not long ago, people wouldn't even dare bring up his name because it was so bad. When they did talk, all they did was scream abuse at each other down the phone," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling Britain's Grazia magazine.
"Madonna has met few people in her life she truly respects and one of them is Guy. Forgetting everything else, she admires his intellect and cares about what he thinks. No one ever expected they could go from lovers to enemies and then back to incredibly close friends," the source added.
Friends of the 'Sherlock Holmes' filmmaker have also claimed he still refers to Madonna as if they are married. One source said: "He'll often say, My wife is in great shape.'' The couple is believed to have agreed to resolve their differences after Madonna's 12-year-old daughter Lourdes from a previous relationship told her mother she wanted the pair to get along.
