8. Anthony Ciccone (May 3, 1956 – present)

Current Age (as of December 2022): 66 years, 7 months, 2 days
Birthplace: Rochester, Michigan
Profession: Unemployed

If you would ever get the chance to meet Anthony Ciccone, you would never imagine he is the brother of one of the most famous singers in the world. 

Madonna’s oldest brother used to work in the family’s vineyard but lost his job after being found drinking directly on the vats. Anthony has been living more than seven years of his life without a house, sleeping on the street. He spent his days under a bridge in Michigan, where he constantly struggled with alcoholism.

Throughout the years, Anthony has also developed a tumultuous relationship with the police. In fact, in 2013, he was arrested after resisting an officer in a public bathroom in Michigan.

After years of living on the street, one day, Anthony decided he had had enough and went into rehab. He chose a revolutionary place called Dann’s House, where patients can drink as much as they want.

In the past, Anthony made the news after declaring that his famous sister, Madonna, did not care about him and that the feeling was mutual. However, Anthony’s statement regarding Madonna’s feelings for him seems to be unreliable.

In fact, Madonna had footed the bill for a two-month stay in a clinic in Texas and had repeatedly tried to get in contact with her older brother.

Did You Know?

During an interview in 2011, Anthony declared, “I’m a zero in their eyes – a non-person. I’m an embarrassment. If I froze to death, my family probably wouldn’t know or care about it for six months.”

7. Martin Ciccone (June 15, 1957 – present)

Current Age (as of December 2022): 75 years, 5 months, 20 days
Birthplace: Rochester, Michigan
Profession: Works In A Rehab

Martin Ciccone is Madonna’s second oldest brother. He was born in 1957 and is currently 65 years old.

Similarly to Anthony, Martin struggled with alcohol throughout his lifetime. Thankfully, at the age of 55, he finally got into rehab and managed to start a program that helped him stay away from alcohol.

In fact, during an interview the following year, he revealed he had spent a whole year without alcohol.

After this experience, Martin decided to work in the clinic, helping others get sober. According to him, this supports him in his decision to stay away from alcohol.

Throughout his life, Martin has been arrested a total of three times for drunk driving. On the third occasion, he also had to spend three months in prison.

Madonna greatly helped his brother in times of need and even supported him financially. Regarding his brother, Anthony, Martin declared that his sister had tried her best to help him out but always found resistance.

Talking about Madonna, Martin declared, “We are on good terms and she’s helping me out. She’s getting me some new teeth. I’m hoping to start doing voiceover work again for cartoons and video games and get back on my feet.”

Martin tried to work as a singer for a short period of time and even released an album called Judgment Day, in which he talked about his experience in prison.
