Guy Ritchie recently spoke for the first time about his heartache after splitting from Madonna in November 2008.
And his revelation has seemingly inspired the singer to shed light on her own experience.
"It was a challenging year," she says. "I may have thrown myself off a building. I think work saved me and I'm very grateful that I had work to do."
Immediately after the couple's divorce, the 51-year-old emerged herself in her current Sticky & Sweet tour, and also teamed up with Justin Timberlake for their hit, 4 Minutes.
The queen of pop's new relationship with Brazilian love Jesus Luz seems to have brought a smile back to her face these days though.
