Madonna, despite her wealth and her devotion to the Kaballah religion, has a homeless brother. Madonna’s brother, Anthony Ciccone, 55 years old, is homeless and is practically living in poverty collecting bottles and cans and doing odd jobs to support himself. Madonna is Lourdes Ciccone in real life. Anthony Ciccone sleeps under a bridge and goes to a homeless shelter for food when there is nothing to eat and or when it is winter. Interviewed by The Michigan Messenger, a local daily, Anthony Ciccone said he’s been among Traverse City, Michigan’s homeless for a year and a half since losing a job at his father’s vineyard and winery.
“My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time. You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times – why my sister is a multibazillionarie, and I’m homeless on the street? Never say never. This could happen to anybody.” Anthony Ciccone said that it annoys him that people are amused that as Madonna’s brother, he would end up sleeping, as he does, under a bridge.
Ironic story. As you all know, Madonna is one of the richest celebrity in the whole world. She also professes to be religious and has even adopted or attempted to adopt needy children from Africa, but I guess the saying “Charity begins at home” does not ring a bell to her. Also, some people are saying that Anthony Ciccone is a drug junkie, then if true, what a good sister would have done is to put that brother in rehab instead. I am pretty sure rehab would not make a small dent in the well stocked coffers of Madonna. What a Shame.
