CNN runs knock-down of Gordon

As is always the way, whenever anyone runs a story about trouble in the Madonna-Ritchie wedding, the couple issue some sort of denial. And, to be fair, after a solid couple of years of gossip sites saying "it's only a matter of time", they are still together.

Today, though, the denial has made CNN:

The news media and blogosphere have been speculating on the couple's status; on Monday, the British newspaper The Sun published a gossipy article on its Web site with the headline: "Madge's marriage `hangs by a thread."'

Rosenberg explained that, until recently, Madonna, 49, and Ritchie were living in separate countries: The Material Girl toured the U.S. to promote her upcoming album "Hard Candy," while the director was stationed in England putting the finishing touches on his new film "RocknRolla," filming a Nike commercial and "working on several scripts."

Today, the Ritchies are "joyfully back together at home in London. All is well and wonderful in the Ritchie household," Rosenberg said.

"Working on several scripts". The blood runs cold.

All this must be annoying Rav Singh, who actually started the story in Sunday's News of the World. We wonder if he's screeching "hey... I made the story up, not Gordon" down a phone to Atlanta.
