Director Guy Ritchie is reportedly turning his back on the Kabbalah, risking the fury of his religious wife Madonna.

The Revolver film-maker fears studying the mystical offshoot of Judaism has done him no favours professionally, and is now attempting to distance himself from the faith.

A pal says, "I think Guy is finally realising that following Kabbalah hasn't been his greatest career move.

"He has been notably less enthusiastic about it of late and has apparently been staying away from the Kabbalah Centre."
