Madonna's homeless brother, Anthony, continues to be manipulated by the press. In the latest opportunity, when it was reported that Madonna was a billionaire, UK tabloids pounced on him to get the brother with nothing to spew his venom for the sister with everything.
On the face of it, it would seem easy to judge: Madonna's rich, he's poor, so she should give him some money and take care of him. Right? Well, except he does not admit to being an alcoholic, and has been helped many times in the past only to fall off the wagon.
Then there's this:
"She never loved me and I never loved her."
Okay, then why do you expect her to help you now?
More interestingly, let's not forget that Madonna has bailed out and/or helped many of her family members and friends over the years. Also, Madonna and Anthony share a fairly well-off father who's actually in Michigan, where Anthony is, and who apparently has also written him off.
There's a lot more to this story, but it makes better copy to vilify the rich bitch.
