Madonna’s Brother Is Homeless

The Superficial / October 24, 2011

Seen here being booed at the London Film Festival premiere of W.E. – Fools! She feeds off your lamentations! – Madonna’s oldest brother Anthony Ciccone is reportedly homeless and has been living on the streets for over a year despite his sister having million of dollars along with a secret volcano lair filled with gold she stole from the Incas. The Michigan Messenger reports:

Ciccone said he’s been among the city’s homeless for a year and a half since losing a job at his father’s vineyard and winery in Suttons Bay. He said that it annoys him that some people are amused that a person from such a high profile family would end up sleeping, as he does, under the Union St. bridge.
“My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,” he said. “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,” he said. “This could happen to anybody.”

And while Madonna faces the trial and tribulations of pretending to be British, her brother gets to deal with the reality of frostbite, so let’s all agree she has it worse. It’s pretty obvious:

If you spend enough time on frozen concrete without proper insulation you will get frostbite, he said. “You have no idea how gruesome it is.”
“You get nerve damage. 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, Ciccone said. “A friend of mine lost all ten toes. Several have died of hypothermia.”

Keep in mind this is not the brother who wrote a tell-all book, so I’m assuming Madonna’s just not giving him a hand because it’s almost Christmas, and she’s got a shitload of toys to steal from Whoville. It’s a very busy time for her. Fortunately, I’m willing to help Anthony out by flying him to a small African village where hopefully through luck and a whole lot of black-face, her majesty will see fit to snatch him up with her talons thus adopting him into her coven where he’ll be sacrificed on his 18th birthday. (How ya doing, David Banda?)
