Things Getting Sticky With Crew On Madonna's Tour

It seems that the crew touring with Madonna on the Sticky and Sweet tour aren't feeling the love from her Madgesty.

According the the Daily Mirror, while Madonna is lapping it up in the life of luxury off stage with Guy Ritchie and the kids, she is making her crew schlep around like disrespected underlings. And they don't appreciate it very much.

Madonna is staying in luxurious hideaway places like the Chateau Saint Jeannet and flying on private jets with her family, leaving her nearly 250 crew members to fly on cheap flights and stay in junker hotels.

A source says, "Everyone is absolutely furious with her and some of them want to walk out of the tour. They feel they are being treated like second-class citizens, despite all their hard work over the last few months."

It seems the trouble started a while ago with her entourage being tired of her mood swings and demands. "Trouble has been brewing for a few months in the Madonna camp, especially since all the claims that her marriage was in crisis," says the source who added, "Now to make matters worse, they are being forced to stay in horrible places and fly on cheap low-cost flights, while she has the lap of luxury. Several are already talking about walking if things don't improve."
