Melbourne: Not many men would consider losing part of his manhood to please their wife, but it seems like Guy Ritchie was willing to go that extra mile for his then-wife Madonna.

It has been claimed that the filmmaker got circumcised to please the pop queen when they were married.

Karen Berg, the singer`s adviser on Kabbalah, told the New York magazine that the ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ director underwent the procedure to adhere to his then wife``s Kabbalah beliefs.

Madonna "keeps a kosher home, she observes Shabbat, she circumcised her son and had her [ex-] husband circumcised," News.com.au quoted Berg as telling the mag.

Madonna was raised a Roman Catholic but is said to have heard about Kabbalah in Los Angeles when she was pregnant with her daughter Lourdes.

Kabbalah is a discipline of Judaism concerned with the mystical aspects of the religion.
