London (ANI): Pop singer Madonna's ex-hubby Guy Ritchie is all set to open a pub in the singer's home city of New York, so that he can see more of the kids. The filmmaker has plans to set up a trendy English boozer so he can spend more time with their children.
However, reports suggest that Madonna will be livid over the decision, as Guy's 2.5million pounds London pub The Punchbowl played a major role in the couple's split. "A lot of New Yorkers told Punchbowl staff they wish they had something like that over there. And if Guy has business in New York he would have a great excuse to have proper days out with the kids," The Mirror quoted a source as saying.
Guy, 40, has even asked estate agents to look for a place Big Apple. Under the terms of their divorce, Rocco, eight, and David, three, will divide their time between the US and London. And Guy will also have access to Lourdes, 12, Madonna's daughter, who will live with her in New York.
The source said: "Guy is very dedicated to his films but his number one priority will always be the kids. He dreads the idea of becoming an 'occasional dad'."
Meanwhile Madonna is currently on her Sticky and Sweet world tour.
