The pop sensation Madonna is rolling in money, but her homeless brother Anthony Ciccone, is not at all impressed by this. Anthony says that Madonna does not care whether he lives or dies. She makes no effort to find out how he is doing. Anthony has been suffering from alcohol addiction for a very long time, and has been living on the streets of Michigan. He has no money. He lives off the kindness of other people in the city.
Anthony held a job once at the family winery. However he lost the job because of his addiction problems. He says that his father was also least bothered about his well-being, and cared very little whether he lived or died. He has not been helped by Madonna or his father once he took to alcohol. They have not made any effort to help him give up drinking. They have stayed away from him since he started boozing.
Kathy Meteyer, a family friend, says that Anthony is the one who is refusing to accept that “he” is the problem. Anthony says that he is absolutely alright. He should be helped by his sister and father financially. However the fact remains that, he failed to turn up for rehab when it was arranged by the family. Both his father and step mother are extremely distressed by his actions. They gave him a job, he couldn’t keep it. They arranged rehab, he declined. So they do not know what to do to make him lead a normal life again.
Anthony continues to remain stubborn about the lack of involvement. He is more than happy to play the blame game, and says that he needs his family to give him money, so that he can lead a good life.
It is not known whether Madonna is going to publicly react to the statements made by her brother. She has been very discreet about her family life, especially her brother. She has never spoken about him in any interview. However Madonna might now be compelled to chip in and perhaps try one last time. It would be good of her if she does this.
The root of the whole problem is of course Anthony’s addiction. He needs to sort this out. Otherwise, the money he wants is going to go down the drain as well.
