Now here is a story for you guys. I appears that Madonna’s older brother, Anthony Ciccone, is homeless in Michigan. Not only that, he has been homeless for almost two years now. What the what?
A local newspaper wrote a piece on the surge of homeless folk in Traverse City, and the Queen of Pop’s bro is one of them.
Anthony told the paper:
“My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,” he said. “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,” he said. “This could happen to anybody.”
“I don’t have any income, I’ve got to go collect bottles and cans, do odd jobs.”
Now there is no doubt two sides to this story, only it is kind of hard to see Madonna’s side, if this is indeed her brother. Especially when it is revealed Anthony almost died of frostbite last winter.
Look M, I can hold a grudge with the best of them but you have the resources and this is kind of severe. Throw some money at the man so he can buy a house, rent an apartment or just get some warm clothes.
Actually, I am over the two sides. Family is family, help the guy out.
Love you girl.
