And if there is something familiar about this blurry image, that is probably because he is the 13-year-old son of arguably the most famous pop star on the planet. This is Rocco Ritchie, son of Madonna and her film director ex-husband Guy. Scroll down for videos Like mother, like son: Madonna and Rocco Ritchie perform during Madonna and Steven Klein secretprojectrevolution in New York This grainy shot (left) was taken some time ago but only posted on Rocco’s Facebook page recently, to celebrate 1,000 ‘likes’ on the social networking site. The knotted towel (right) is a homage to rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot dead. Rocco was 12 when this photo, seemingly of him sipping beer, was taken Most parents would be disturbed to find their child was posting images on the internet of himself pointing a gun into the lens of a camera. But for Madonna and Guy, this can be said to be something of a moral grey area. For Guy made his name directing violent gangster movies, while Madonna can hardly take the moral high ground considering how often she wields guns on camera. Is Madonna morphing into LiLo? Singer looks eerily identical to younger star as she debuts her film project Worryingly, however, this isnt the only example of the teenager posting inappropriate images on publicly available websites. One shows Rocco, aged 12, drinking a pint of what looks like beer. Another shows him seemingly smoking a cigar. And several show him throwing gangster signs and posing with a shotgun. Then there is the image of Queen Elizabeth II with a speech bubble superimposed on the picture saying: Theres only one queen and thats Madonna . . .
But Brain has also fought back, infamously referring to Kerry as ‘some pr*ck’ on Twitter. Most recently she said: “What pisses me off is that when he does fall in love, the kids come second. And that’s why I think he’s a w**ker.” Charming. Sharon Osbourne and Dannii Minogue Bet you can’t name a single contestant from series four of ‘The X Factor’ in 2007 – that’s because the whole series was dominated by the almighty cat fight between Sharon Osbourne and Dannii Minogue. Shazza called her “a spoon with hair” when she appeared on Graham Norton show, adding: “She wasn’t so much a dim bulb as a bulb in a power cut. F***ing usless.” Sharon later quit the show as Dannii “became too unbearable”, comparing her to “a mosquito that wouldn’t go away.” Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole Once the best of friends, the pair famously fell out when Cheryl was axed from the US version of ‘The X Factor’ after just four days of auditions. As of July 2013, Cheryl was locked in a court battle trying to get compensation for her sacking, and instructed her lawyers to quiz Simon on how much he earns. However, the pair are now friends again, with Cheryl thanking her former boss for a gift he sent for her 30th birthday in June 2013. He also tweeted: “We are close friends again and I adore her.” Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey All hell broke loose on the ‘American Idol’ set in 2010 when Nicki Minaj tired with Mariah Carey’s ‘divaish’ ways and allegedly threatened to violence against her in behind-the-scenes footage leaked to TMZ. “I told them I’m not f*****g putting up with her f*****g highness over there. I’m gonna knock you out,” she screamed. Six months of barbed comments, eye rolling and awkward tension followed, before they both quit the show after just one series. One Direction and The Wanted We don’t even know where to start with the beef between these two boybands.

So motivational and “PERFECT.” Goodnight to all the people who live life and who aren’t stuck in the past!” Brett Ratner v. Olivia Munn In actress Olivia Munn’s book “Suck It, Wonder Woman,” she recounts her brief romantic dalliance with director Brett Ratner and didn’t have anything nice to say about the size of his penis. Ratner addressed the claims on “Attack of the Show” saying, “I used to date Olivia Munn, I’ll be honest with everyone here, when she was Lisa…she wasn’t Asian back then.” He continued: “She was hanging out on my set of ‘After the Sunset,’ I banged her a few times. But I forgot her…because she changed her name…I didn’t know it was the same person, so when she came and auditioned for me for a TV show I forgot her, she got pissed off, and she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer.” Munn responded by tweeting a link to a Cosmo article she had written titled, “How to Stand up to an A-Hole,” that detailed an incident with a director she called the “Douche.” LeAnn Rimes vs. Giuliana Rancic LeAnn Rimes is skinny — so skinny that she has people worrying that she’s not eating. The equally skinny Giuliana Rancic was one those people. Pot, meet kettle. The two skinny ladies battled it out telling each other to eat a sandwich. Ciara vs. Rihanna Rihanna and Ciara — who both dated Chris Brown in the past — got into a heated public spat in February 2011. First Ciara made a dig at Rihanna on “Fashion Police,” saying: “I ran into her recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest. It’s crazy because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion.
