#Madonna under fire for pictures of 13-year-old son partying with gin bottle

Images emerged online of Rocco Ritchie posing with a bottle of gin during a party in Switzerland, alongside two friends wielding vodka

Madonna has been accused of promoting underage boozing after posting a snap online of her 13-year-old son holding a bottle of gin.

Rocco, son of British film director Guy Ritchie, was photographed alongside two pals holding bottles of vodka.

Madonna, 55, wrote in the caption: “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014.”

Madonna is in posh ski resort Gstaat, Switzerland, with her four kids Lourdes, 17, David and Mercy, both eight, Rocco and a group of close pals.

The Instagram snap angered fans, with one commenting: “Dislike big dislike nothing like promoting underage drinking madonna duhhhhhhhh” and another demanding: “R they old enough to drink?”.

Pop veteran Madonna was forced to retaliate to her critics yesterday morning writing on Instagram: “No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don’t start the year off with judgement!”

The legal age for drinking in Switzerland is 16. Rocco posted a picture on his own Instagram site of him and a young male friend posing behind a drinks bar last week. He wrote: “Me and @dom_sesto work hard behind the bar tonight #faded”.

It also emerged last month that Rocco posted a home-made video on his Youtube channel of him somersaulting off a balcony into a swimming pool with Madonna’s boyfriend Brahim Zaibat.
