Madonna's son, Rocco, reportedly wants to stay with his dad, Guy Ritchie, in London, but the pop singer is not having it.
The hearing was reportedly called when Rocco made it clear he wanted to stay in the U.K., court sources told the Daily News.
The Daily News' sources allege that Rocco's lawyer in Britain has been holding his client's passport for safekeeping, essentially keeping the teenager from returning to the U.S.
The Daily News reports that Rocco must return to New York before the start of school after the Christmas break.
"I'm directing the child to be returned to New York," the Daily News quotes Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan as saying. "If he wants to stay with his father, he must return to his mother."
Kaplan also reportedly ordered both parents not to discuss the legal proceedings with their son.
"The parties should be doing this in New York instead of initiating it in England," Kaplan reportedly said.
Reps for the family have not yet responded to ET's request for comment.
Earlier this year, Madonna told Entertainment Weekly that Rocco would be touring with her.
"I think he's probably gonna work behind the scenes," she said. "He's not interested in performing on stage with me right now. There's way cooler things. Your mom is not that cool when you're 14."
