Los Angeles - Madonna and Guy Ritchie have reportedly settled their custody battle over Rocco Ritchie.

The Living For Love hitmaker and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. director were expected in court on Wednesday to thrash things out but they are said to have now informed the judge that they have come to an agreement regarding their son.

The settlement is being kept confidential but it is thought that Rocco will stay with Guy in London for school and Madonna will be able to see her son regularly throughout the year, TMZ reports.

Following news of the settlement, Madonna tweeted two pictures. The once captioned: "Because sometimes soccer Mom's need to be a .......,.,,........ Bitch (sic)" and the other "And be treated like a............... Queen (sic)"

Meanwhile, it was previously claimed that Madonna had hired a specialist in teenage psychology to help her build bridges with Rocco.

A source shared: "She's been advised not to confront him with all her concerns, but to be relaxed and talk about other, 'non-provocative' subjects.

"She has also been told not to confuse her agenda with her ex-husband and his wife Jacqui Ainsley with her relationship with her son.

"She has to accept Rocco adores his father and if she continues slagging Guy off, which she has done so publicly, all she is doing is more and more damage to her bond with Rocco."
