Madonna appears drunk onstage as she MISSES court hearing over son


Madonna has been having a tough couple of months. 

Not only is she currently on the road for her Rebel Heart tour but she is also embroiled in a custody battle with her ex-husband over her 15-year-old son Rocco. 

Rocco left the States to live with Guy and his family in December of last year and has not seen his popstar mother since. 

Guy and Rocco both appeared at a hearing in London this week over the dispute with Madonna's rep apologising for her absence. 

The 57-year-old star was actually in Australia performing to a Melbourne crowd but reports suggested that the show started hours late. 

Fans worried for the star as she took the stage in a clown costume and spoke openly about her family issues to the audience. 

"Oh there's no end to the mistakes I've made," said the singer onstage according to the Sun. 

"Anyway everybody knows the saga of me and my son Rocco. It's not a fun story to tell or think about.

"I probably could have enjoyed myself a little bit more on this tour if he hadn't disappeared so suddenly and also if I knew when I would see him again."

The star then sang a song dedicated to her son with his image displayed on a large screen behind her. 

She also admitted to having a few drinks that evening with audience members taking to Twitter to speculate that the singer was drunk. 

"One thing I’m going to do here tonight that I’ve never done before when singing is drink.

"I’m not supposed to be asking for alcohol right now but, Jesus Christ, get me some drink."

We can't imagine any of this will bode well for her case which she is currently trying to have heard solely in the States rather than in London.
