Madonna & child: pop star gets criticized over photo

 

Why? Just why? Madonna decided to post an Instagram picture of her 13-year-old son Rocco Ritchie holding a bottle of gin with two pals. The caption: “Bring it! 2014.” According to E! News, the photo was taken in the Swiss Alps where the legal drinking age is 16. Three years to go, buddy. Granted, the teen was not seen imbibing the alcohol. Madonna later explained away the pic. “No one was drinking ... we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor!”

In mourning

Longtime girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian is said to be supporting Scott Disick in his time of need after his real estate developer father Jeffrey Disick’s death that came just three months after Disick’s mother Bonnie died. The reality couple were said to be on a ski holiday in Park City, Utah, when he got the bad news. Disick, an only child, has made no public statement yet on the cause of death, but on a January episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Scott mentioned that his father had diabetes and needed a heart replacement.

Hot water

Still-married, disgraced politician Eliot Spitzer isn’t making his new relationship a secret. Insiders told Gawker that the so-called Love Gov recently vacationed in Jamaica with his mistress, communications pro Lis Smith. Spies said that Spitzer, 54, was having his way with the 31-year-old’s toes in a hot tub at the Half Moon family resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, in broad daylight. “It was gross,” reported a witness. “She had her top off.” An unnamed friend of the couple tells The New York Daily News that the hot tub story is untrue. Estranged wife Silda Wall Spitzer announced plans for a divorce from her wayward hubby, who served as the governor of New York from January 2007 until his resignation the following year amid a prostitution scandal.

Morning commute

Prince William has started a special 10-week course in agricultural management, commuting by train to the University of Cambridge. The future king, whose formal title is Duke of Cambridge, traveled Tuesday on the 9:44 a.m. train from London’s King Cross station. He is embarking on a tailored course designed to help him manage the lucrative Duchy of Cornwall estate which he stands to inherit from his father, Prince Charles, who has been an outspoken advocate for organic farming. The course will include one-on-one teaching and some regular classwork with other students.

Mad men

Someone give Charlie Sheen a chill pill. After warring with both exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller over the holidays over custody issues, the actor is now taking his aggressions out on his Two and a Half Men replacement Ashton Kutcher. On Twitter, Sheen wrote: “Hey Ashton...quit barfing on my old brilliant show,” and asked ex costar Jon Cryer, “Who’s your lame sidekik [sic]?” Stay classy, Ash, and don’t respond.
