NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Trudie Styler has spoken out for the first time about the split between her friends, Madonna and Guy Ritchie.
“I love them both,” Trudie told Access Hollywood Monday night at the Whitney Museum of America Art’s Studio Party in celebration with Versace, where her husband, Sting, was performing. “They’re both dear friends of mine and all good things sometimes come to an end.”
Trudie and Sting were famously responsible for setting up the now separated couple at a dinner party in 1999. Madonna and Guy married the following year at Skibo Castle in Scotland.
Although a rep for Madonna confirmed last week that the pop star and Guy were divorcing, Trudie, the godmother of Madonna and Guy’s eldest son, Rocco, said she thinks things between the two will end up all right.
“Obviously they’ve been struggling for a while,” she said. “I think they’re destined to become great pals.
Trudie has been a longtime friend of both Madonna and Guy. She previously served as executive producer on Guy’s movies “Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch.”
