Madonna's Renewed Interest In Son Rocco: How Will She Handle His Drinking And Smoking?

Madonna wants to take an active part in her son Rocco Ritchie's life, according to the Daily Mail. The 57-year-old "Like a Prayer" singer recently repaired her rather tense relationship with Rocco, but it seems that she is already taking it upon herself to check her son's progress in studies.

Madonna visited Rocco's North London school late last month to make sure he's doing well with his education. The mother of four was spotted having a discussion with the head of the 15-year-old's school and was seen leaving the school with a sincere smile on her face.

According to witnesses, Madonna spent about an hour at Rocco's independent school, where students can choose more than 20 subjects in such fields as social science, humanities, and arts.

In 2015, Rocco reportedly left Madonna while the singer was touring to live with his father, Guy Ritchie. According to a source close to the "Rebel Heart" singer's family, Madonna is doing all she can to be a better mother for Rocco.

"Madonna is taking every step she can to make sure Rocco's doing well on every level, and of course, that includes his education."

Madonna has recently repaired her relationship with Rocco after numerous reports claimed the 15-year-old boy didn't want to see his mother. And it seems that Madonna has her own recipe to get along with teenagers: visiting theater shows and art galleries.

In late 2015, when Madonna was still on her global tour, a court ruling ordered Rocco to spend Christmas with his mother in New York, but Rocco refused to travel to New York. But now that Madonna has recently completed the tour, she has more time to spend quality time with her 15-year-old son.

Moreover, Rocco is now staying with Madonna, which means the two indeed repaired their rocky relationship. And Rocco wasn't the only one who has been spending more time with the "Like a Virgin" singer, as Guy visited Madonna's home in London twice last month.

Guy is now remarried to model Jacqui Ainsley, and the pair have three young children. Apparently, Jacqui doesn't seem too eager to be friends with Madonna, as she didn't join her husband to visit the singer's home this week.

Last month, the media exploded with concerns about Rocco's lifestyle after the teenager was spotted drinking and smoking under a bridge with a group of other teenagers.

Madonna, who is mother to Rocco, Lourdes Leon, Mercy, and David Banda, didn't publicly respond to the reports, but since she is now taking an active role in Rocco's life, she may have taken action in private regarding the teenager's recent lifestyle choices.

In fact, Madonna recently took Rocco to London's Barbican art center, where they were spotted enjoying a photography exhibit titled "Strange And Familiar." The two also watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in a London theater earlier this week. Afterward, Madonna and her son enjoyed dinner at the celebrity restaurant called Chiltern Firehouse.

In other news, Madonna dodged a $250 fine recently, according to TMZ. The "Hung Up" singer was warned to remove the "no parking" sign that she illegally put in front of her Upper East Side driveway.

According to New York City's Department of Transportation, homeowners are not allowed to put such signs in front of their driveways, and they have 30 days to remove it or get a $250 fine. And Madonna clearly didn't want to pay the $250, as there is now no trace left of the "no parking" sign.

A Department of Transportation rep later confirmed that they now have no complaints about Madonna's driveway.
