A source close to Ritchie told The Mail On Sunday that the Sherlock Holmes director has angered his current girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley by choosing to celebrate the holiday with his former spouse.
"Jacqui was really looking forward to spending Christmas with her man but is now feeling very much left out in the cold," the source said.
The insider added: "Guy is excited about spoiling his children on Christmas Day. He has told Jacqui he's spending it with his ex-wife for the sake of the children - but it hasn't gone down at all well."
Ritchie and Madonna decided to end their relationship after eight years of marriage in 2008.
