While pop star Madonna splits her time between lavish estates in London, Los Angeles and New York, her older brother Anthony Ciccone, 55, lives under a bridge in northern Michigan.

The Michigan Messenger broke that news Monday in a report about the homeless flocking to Traverse City, where frigid temperatures aren’t enough to deter the homeless from taking advantage of a church network that keeps them fed and warm.

The news site found Ciccone under the Union Street bridge in Traverse City, where he said he lost his job at his father’s winery a year-and-a-half ago and had nowhere to turn.

He said his family, including his sister, a “multibazillionaire,” had “turned their backs” on him.

Ciccone said he suffered frostbite last year.
