(Newser) – With the ink barely dry on their $60 million divorce settlement, Madonna and Guy Ritchie appear desperate for the world to know just how much they hate each other. Madge tells the Telegraph that Ritchie demoralized her with verbal abuse, saying she looks “like a granny” on stage. Ritchie, meanwhile, describes his ex to the Daily Mail as a self-obsessed tyrant.

In addition to enforcing her strict macrobiotic diet on the household (no sugar or dairy, hardly any meat) and spending more time with her personal trainer than her family, Ritchie claims that Madonna sleeps slathered in $1000-per-jar cream and wrapped in a plastic suit. The Material Girl, for her part, says she would sometimes catch Ritchie checking out waitresses.
