Flanked by Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, who are the stars of his next movie, Sherlock Holmes, director Guy Ritchie arrived for a private viewing at a London art gallery on October 23, reportedly looking the happiest he’s been in ages. Since Guy, 40, and Madonna split on October 15, he’s happier. “He’s been in a very good mood,” his dad, John, exclusively tells In Touch. “I wasn’t upset that they split. I am very pleased for Guy that it is over.”
“Guy is finally starting to socialize in a way that we haven’t seen from him in years,” explains another source, adding that Guy’s desire to see his friends was a big reason behind his divorce. “Madonna had heard that Guy attended a bachelor party, and she became really upset,” says the source. A heated phone argument between the couple prompted Guy to demand an immediate legal separation. “He said, ‘I need to get this divorce going so I can live again.’” Now the only trouble on the horizon is hammering out custody of Rocco, 8, and David, 3. Guy doesn’t want his kids to “live in America permanently,” his father tells In Touch. “He is such a good, positive father, he won’t let that happen.”
