The pop icon’s eldest son, Rocco Ritchie, was arrested for possession of cannabis nearly two months ago in London.

The 16-year-old was detained after a stop-and-search was performed by officers from the Camden police department on Sept. 28, according to a statement released by the Metropolitan Police in London.

Rocco was taken to a north London police station where he was subsequently bailed and dealt with by Camden borough’s Youth Offending Team.

According to the Metropolitan Police, he was dealt with by way of ”Triage”, which uses multiple strands to engage and educate young people in order to prevent re-offending.

In a statement to ABC News, Madonna described the incident as “a family matter.”

The singer added: “I love my son very much. I will do whatever I can to give him the support that he needs, and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”

Rocco has been at the centre of a long custody battle between his 58-year-old pop star mom and 48-year-old director dad, Guy Ritchie.

In September, a judge allowed the ”Papa Don’t Preach” Singer to dismiss her custody case in New York City and settle matters outside of court.
