Madonna's brother talks about his sister
While Madonna’s fortunes surpassed the billion mark recently – her world tour last year breaking all sorts of records – her homeless brother has spoken out about his relationship with his superstar sister.
"Madonna doesn't give a s-t if I'm dead or alive," Anthony Ciccone told the Daily Mail. "She lives in her own world. I never loved her in the first place, she never loved me. We never loved each other." Ciccone was arrested recently, and did jail time for swearing at children outside a church. "No family backup, when the chips fell, no family backup," Ciccone said, blaming that episode on a lack of family support. "I'd rather be working. What would you do under these circumstances when your family has stood against you completely?" Kathy Mateyer, who works in the Ciccone family vineyard, has a different view, though. "He would sneak into the cellars and he would lay on the floor, open up one of the big tanks, and drink the wine with a glass," Meteyer said to the Mail. "They think [returning] would kill him. It already kind of has."

Although Ciccone’s side of the story would paint Madonna out to be somewhat of a monster – her billions laying dormant while he freezes on the streets – reports suggest she has paid for his rehab on numerous occasions, and every time he relapses. "Anthony just won't accept help," Meteyer continued.
