Madonna's older brother Anthony was in a rehab treatment paid by the Queen of Pop before his death

    A few days ago, Madonna‘s brother, Anthony Ciccone, died at the age of 66, and although several media outlets criticized the superstar for not looking after her brother, PageSix reported that despite the tension in their relationship, Anthony had been in a treatment center in Michigan that was paid for by Madonna.

    According to reports, Anthony actively struggled with alcoholism and his living situation was precarious, to the point that he was homeless, but he had mental health issues and rejected help from his family.

    “Madonna helped support her brother when he accepted that support,” said a source. During his last months, Anthony was in contact with his family and Madonna, but he rejected the support offered by the rehabilitation center, and it was clear that he was ready to move on.”

    The cause of death has not been revealed

    TMZ reported that two days before Anthony’s death, he tried to remove his feeding and breathing tubes while seeking treatment. According to reports, Ciccone had also lost a significant amount of weight towards the end of his life. The cause of his death has not yet been revealed.

    The Material Girl posted a tribute to her brother on Monday, via her Instagram Story, thanking him for introducing her to various artists and ideas when they were growing up.

    “Thank you for blowing my mind when I was young and introducing me to Charlie Parker / Miles Davis / Buddhism / Taoism / Charles Bukowski / Richard Brautigan / Jack Kerouac / Expansive Thinking / Outside the Box,” wrote Madonna.

    Witnesses claim that despite the difficult relationship between Madonna and her brother, she did what she could to help him in his struggle with addiction, but he ultimately succumbed to his problems and precarious health at the age of 66.
