Madonna's Brother Is Homeless!

Madonna and Lourdes Leon
You know how Italian blood is said to be the thickest kind there is? Well, we just realized that 'La Familia' tend to loose its importance when one member of the family makes it big and moves to America. We're of course talking about Madonna, who according to recent reports has been allowing her older brother Anthony Ciccone to live homeless on the streets of Traverse City, Michigan for little over a year now! She owns several multi million homes, yet he's living under a bridge. Shocking!

Anthony lost his job at the family vineyard in Suttons Bay last year, and has since been without both work and home. While recently receiving a free meal at a local church, Anthony decided to speak out about the ordeal, saying: "My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time. 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. This could happen to anybody. I don't have any income, I've got to go collect bottles and cans, do odd jobs. Where do you go at 8 o'clock on a Sunday morning and you have no money in your pocket?

You get nerve damage (from the cold). That's the milder stage, in the severe stage you have tissue damage, that is when you lose parts of your body. I got frostbite on my feet last winter. A friend of mine lost all 10 toes. Several have died of hypothermia."

While we do sympathize with him, we can't help but think that he must have done something pretty bad to deserve it. But unless he actually murdered someone, shouldn't his family be able to find it in their hearts to at least put a roof over his head?
