    While Madonna kicks back in her newly renovated $32 million NYC townhouse and her homes in Los Angeles and London, her second eldest brother is living under a bridge and on the streets of Michigan.

    Anthony Ciccone, 55, has opened to local news site The Michigan Messenger in an interview that addresses the influx of homeless flocking to Traverse City because of its generous meal program and shelter program.

    "My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time," said Ciccone, who grew up in Rochester Hills, Mich. along with his six siblings including his multiplatinum music artist sister, 53. "You think I haven't answered this kind of question a bazillion times -- why my sister is a multibazillionaire, and I'm homeless on the street? Never say never. This could happen to anybody."

    Michigan. Not surprised. It was getting pretty desolate, when I left in 2003. It's a shame. It's an awesome place. Hopefully it will bounce back.

    I wonder if this is the brother that went to see her in her movie, back in '91. I can't remember the name of it.

    My family tree is a shattered mess, but if I had her kind of money, no member of my family would be out on the streets.

    Even so. And even if it's due to drug use. That exact same issue is in place in my family. If it were my sister, and I had the money, I'd set her up in an apartment, and have groceries delivered. There'd be no money for her, for obvious reasons. The home would have all the amenities, unless and until she sold stuff to get shit. Then she'd do without.

    I wonder how many times she has tried to rescue him over the years that we don't hear about.
