A day after Madonna settled her contentious custody battle with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, the Rebel Heart singer took to Instagram to express her feelings.

The protracted legal dispute over the former couple's 16-year-old son, Rocco, ended with an out-of-court settlement, which allowed Rocco to continue living with his father in England.

In March, a U.K. judge ruled that the dispute over Rocco's residency would be decided in a New York court or through family mediation, stating, "It would be a very great tragedy for Rocco if any more of the previous and fast receding days of his childhood were to be taken up by this dispute."

Rocco had been living with the Sherlock Holmes director since late last year while his parents fought over his custody and living arrangements.
