Madonna's beleaguered husband Guy Ritchie has attempted to take a break from the speculation about the state of his marriage with a weekend away at Sting's country estate.
The moviemaker has been under constant scrutiny from the media ever since rumours emerged he is allegedly on the verge of splitting from his pop star wife.
While Madonna is on a visit to New York, Ritchie made a trip to visit Sting's wife Trudie Styler - who is credited with first introducing the couple in 1998.
The 39-year-old filmmaker spent the weekend (28-29Jun08) with Styler at her and Sting's British country retreat. He is reportedly expected to fly out to the U.S. to meet up with his wife later this week (beg30Jun08).
