Ritchie Too Poor

The millionaire father of GUY RITCHIE will not be wearing a kilt to his son's wedding - because he claims he can't afford it.

Seventy-one year old JOHN RITCHIE, whose film director son will marry pop queen MADONNA this month (22DEC00), has grown out of his old tartan outfit and refuses to splash out on a new one.

Ritchie Senior, who made a fortune as a director of commercials, reckons the $750 (500) price tag is too much, and plans to wear a regimental suit to the $2.2 million (1.5 million) Highland ceremony instead. He says, "I could buy a kilt, but it wouldn't be worth it as it might be the only occasion when I would wear it."
