Besides paintings, Rocco is also a model and has been featured in different photoshoots. He has often modeled fashion from previous decades.

However, his passion for fashion is also evident in real life. Rocco has a mild presence on social media, and his Instagram page has almost eight thousand followers. However, he only uses the page to show off his paintings and other artistic works.

INSIDE ROCCO'S PRIVATE LIFE

Not a lot of information is available on Rocco. It's not known whether he is currently single or dating because he doesn't share his personal life on social media. However, there have been some hints over the years.

In August 2021, Rocco was spotted sharing a passionate kiss with a mystery girl during a romantic beach day in Sardinia. The artist and his brunette partner could not keep their hands off each other as they continuously made out while cooling off in the sea.

Rocco was also seen walking on the beach in black swim shorts while his beautiful partner donned a purple bikini. The pair looked smitten with each other and did not care about PDA.

ROCCO IS UNDER CONSTANT ATTENTION FROM THE PRESS

Although Rocco tries his best to stay away from the spotlight, having famous parents has him constantly under the microscopic view of the media. He always has paparazzi after him trying to get pictures and figure out his movements.

For example, in June 2021, while his mother and five siblings were in Michigan celebrating his grandfather Silvio Ciccone's 90th birthday, Rocco was spotted in London, leaving a private club. The artist looked sharp in a two-piece suit worn over a patterned shirt.

In May 2022, he was spotted arriving at an afterparty for his art exhibition at The Twenty Two in London. Rocco donned a burgundy velvet suit which he paired with a white shirt and red tie. He completed the look with black loafers. He was also seen posing for pictures with his sister Lourdes Leon, his mother's daughter with Carlos Leon.

ROCCO'S PARENTS WERE INVOLVED IN A CUSTODY BATTLE OVER HIM

Rocco Ritchie was born in 2000 to his parents Madonna and Guy Ritchie. However, by 2015, the couple had split and were involved in a custody battle over their son.

Despite a court order specifying that Rocco should return to the United States to his mother, he refused and instead stayed with his father in London. For several months after that, Madonna tried her best to plead with her son to go live with her, all to no avail.

During a performance in 2016, the singer dedicated the song "La Vie en Rose" to her son, telling the crowd she hoped he would see it and know how much she missed him. After nine months of dispute, the custody issue was eventually settled, although there was no indication of who Rocco would stay with.

Nowadays, however, it looks like mother and son have overcome their differences. In March 2022, the singer and Rocco were spotted leaving Harry's Bar in London. The singer donned a black turtleneck and black boots as she followed close behind Rocco, who was in a gray suit and brown dress shoes.
