R+B star Ciara has spoken out in support of Madonna - insisting the pop superstar is strong enough to get through her divorce from Guy Ritchie.
The pair announced their split earlier this month (Oct08), confirming that their marriage has come to an end after seven-and-a-half years.
According to some reports, Madonna's desire to adopt another child, her punishing gym routine, and a lack of support for her director husband's filmmaking career caused irreparable damage to their union.
But the Material Girl star can count on one supporter to back her through the bitter proceedings - crunk star Ciara, who insists the singer's 25-years in the public spotlight will help her cope.
The 23-year-old tells OK! magazine, "She's a megastar, and that goes with the territory.
"But she's definitely put her foot down as a woman over the years and she's proven to be one of the best to me. She'll make it through - she's been doing this for a long time."
