Beleagured pop queen Madonna embarked on another bizarre, boozy tirade at her Melbourne, Australia concert over the weekend, this time knocking back swigs of tequila as she beckoned to the crowd to take care of her.
The “Like A Virgin” singer struggled to compose herself at the sold-out show and at one point even tried to ride around the stage on a tricycle with a liquor bottle in-hand before she collapsed to the ground.
“Somebody take care of me please,” she told the Rod Laver Arena crowd, according to reports. “Who is going to take care of me?”
The 57-year-old singer, who is currently waged in a drawn-out, contentious custody feud with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, also reportedly took sips out of a concertgoer’s flask in between songs.
Madonna took a spill while riding a tricycle during her Melbourne show, but she didn’t spill her tequila.
And in another rambling, profanity-laced rant, the Material Girl surveyed the audience and pleaded “someone please f— me.”
Likewise, Madonna admitted to the intrigued audience that she’d “messed up” a couple songs before joking she figured they’d be embedded in her DNA, according to British tabloid The Sun.
Earlier in the week, Madonna dressed as a clown for her first Melbourne performance, where she emotionally opened up about her drawn-out legal battle with Ritchie and dedicated a song to her estranged son Rocco.
Many surmised that Madge was drunk at the show, as she slurred her words and downed a Cosmo on stage as she addressed the audience. But her flack told TMZ the mid-show vodka cocktail was the only thing Madonna drank that night.
Madonna has regularly spoken about her ongoing custody war at shows since the 15-year-old Rocco ditched her “Rebel Heart” tour in December to move in with his father in London.
A Manhattan Supreme Court justice ruled in December that Rocco had to return to his mother’s Manhattan home, but the wayward teen and his director father ignored the court order. The judge has since said Rocco, who prefers to live with his father, can remain in England until his parents come to a custody agreement.
Madonna is currently waged in a bitter custody war with her ex-husband, Guy Ricthie.
Guy and Rocco Ritchie each attended a High Court hearing on Thursday, but Madonna was unable to attend due to her shows in the Land Down Under.
The highly complicated saga appears to have taken a major toll on Madonna, and People magazine reported last week that Ritchie is “treading on eggshells” to avoid upsetting her in hopes of finally reaching a settlement.
