Guy Ritchie has been partying in London while his wife Madonna is in America

The film director was drinking whisky into the early hours of Wednesday morning (11.06.08) after starting his night out on Tuesday evening (10.06.08).

Despite rumours his marriage is in trouble, Guy was seen smiling and joking at new Whisky Mist bar in the exclusive Mayfair area.

The ‘Snatch’ director reportedly told a friend: “I’m fine. The wife is away at the moment, so I’m on a boys’ night out.”

A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “Guy just wanted to enjoy himself with his friends. He hasn’t had time to get out much lately, what with being away with Madonna.”

Madonna, who raises three children with Guy, is the US preparing for her forthcoming world tour, which could see her spend long periods away from her family.

Madonna, 49, and Guy, 39, have been married since 2000. He is stepfather to Madonna’s daughter Lourdes, 11, and the couple have Rocco, seven and recently adopted David, two.
