Pop Queen Madonna's brother has unleashed his true feelings for the singer's ex-husband Guy Ritchie.

Christopher Ciccone, Madge's younger brother confessed he has always disliked film director Guy and is said to be delighted the couple split last year.

The 48-year-old, who has worked for his sister as her personal assistant, stylist and interior decorator for the past 20 years admitted loathing ex brother-in-law in an interview with Dutch TV.

'Rock and Rolla' creator Guy had been married to Madonna for the past eight years and the couple had one son, Rocco and adopted another David.

But after a series of rows and public appearances without each other, the couple called time on their tempetous relationship.

Now Ciccone, who recently penned the book, 'Life With My Sister Madonna' says he has never met somebody as insecure as Guy and he that the director is naturally miserable.

Ciccone said: "I really disliked Guy Ritchie.

"He is miserable. Always is, always has been and I can see why she is not with him anymore.

"I don't know why he is... I just think he is naturally miserable.

"I also think he was very threatened by my relationship with my sister.

"None of the other men in her life have ever felt that way.

"I honestly have never experienced anybody so insecure.

"She had to wear a jacket with his name on it for God's sake, it just never made any sense to me."

Ciccone, who is openly gay, also blames Ritchie's alleged homophobia as the cause of the family rift, between him and Madonna.

The designer says he had to be black mailed into going to the couple's nuptials in 2000 and described the day as a "horrible experience."

He also admitted he caused a stir when he was asked to give a toast to the happy couple but ended up ruining his sister's big day.

Ciccone added: "I had to be black-mailed into going to the wedding.

"I had done an interior design job for Madonna and she said she would only pay me if I went to the wedding.

"I had to go because I wanted to get paid but it really was a horrible experience.

"She asked me to give a toast at the reception and I said to her 'You really don't want me to this because I'm in a bad mood.'

"But she insisted.

"So I got up and said, I would like to toast this happy moment.

"It happens only twice in a person's life- which was a dig at her first marriage.

"And I said 'If anyone wants to f*** Guy, he will be in my room.'

"I knew he would be angry about that because he is a homophobe.

"I probably ruined his wedding day but I just didn't care what he thought."
