The Material Girl reportedly has an immaterial brother, or at least one with no roof over his head. According to the Michigan Messenger, Madonna’s older brother Anthony Ciccone has been living under a bridge in Traverse City, Mich.
So, what’s the homeless-for-a-year guy got to say about his little sister’s lack of interest in his predicament?

“My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,” he said. “You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times—why my sister is a multibazillionarie, and I’m homeless on the street?”
“Never say never,” he said. “This could happen to anybody.”
Big brother Anthony reportedly lost his job at Ciccone Vineyard, owned by his father, in the nearby town of Suttons Bay, Mich., and now collects discarded bottles and cans to make money.
We know times are tough out there, but charity begins at home, right? And we’re guessing there just might possibly be someone out there who could shine a ray of light on Anthony’s dark situation.
