(Newser) – Guy Ritchie followed Madonna to New York yesterday to save his marriage—and also huddle with the family accountant in case his attempts fail. Ritchie could land $100 million of his wife’s $800 million fortune so “the lawyers will want to go through the assets with a fine-tooth comb,” a source told the Daily Mirror.

"Madonna seems to be sticking to her guns and will want this done as swiftly as possible, unless Guy can persuade her otherwise.” Said another pal: "Guy is distraught over the fact he may miss out on seeing his children every day. He adores his family and still has a slight hope that their relationship may not end in divorce."
