Rocco Ritchie – the 16-year-old son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie – has reportedly been arrested in London after police found him in possession of cannabis. The teenager was allegedly caught with a small amount of the class B drug in September near to the home he shares in Primrose Hill with his father.

A police spokesperson told HELLO! Online: "A 16-year-old youth has been arrested for possession of cannabis. The arrest follows a stop and search by officers from Camden borough at around 5.15pm on Wednesday, September 28 at Steeles Mews North.

"The youth was taken to a north London police station. He was subsequently bailed and dealt with by Camden borough's Youth Offending Team. He was dealt with by way of Triage, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending."

Earlier this year, Rocco hit the headlines when he found himself at the centre of a custody battle between Guy and Madonna. When the teenager refused to travel with Madonna on her Rebel Heart tour, choosing to stay with his father in London in instead, she launched legal action in the UK and the US demanding custody of her son.

Guy and Madonna eventually reached a settlement just hours before they were due in court in New York, agreeing that Rocco would continue to live in London, where he also attends school.
