Madonna’s older brother Anthony Ciccone has not only been homeless for 18 months, but he sleeps under the Union St. Bridge in Traverse City, Michigan (250 miles north of Detroit).
The Daily Mail caught up with 56-year-old Ciccone, an alcoholic and drug addict who lost his job at his family’s vineyard and winery after he was found drinking “straight from the vats.”
“I never loved her in the first place, she never loved me,” a visibly weathered Anthony said of his pop star sister, adding “She doesn’t give a shit if I’m dead or alive. She lives in her own world.”
The queen of the world isn’t the only one ignoring Anthony. His own father, 80-year-old Silvio Ciccone refuses to help his son until he stops drinking. (Madonna paid for him to enter rehab six years ago.)
Anthony was even arrested for swearing at children in a church, which appears to be his most hobo-y moment after collecting bottles and cans and drinking alcohol wrapped in paper bags. (No joke.)
Madonna has a history of discourse with her seven siblings. In 1994, her youngest brother Martin “Marty” Ciccone released a rap album called Judgment Day, featuring several digs aimed at his famous sister. Most notably, former assistant and stylist Christopher wrote a memoir in 2008 titled Life With My Sister Madonna describing their tumultuous relationship.
