While Madonna was the headlining halftime act for the Super Bowl on Sunday, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned her homeless brother made his way to the big game too…but didn’t get any further than the parking lot!
Anthony Ciccone made his way down to Indianapolis with a group of about seven people from Traverse City, Michigan, where he normally resides in a homeless shelter.
Local rock radio station KLT put together a group labeled ‘The Misfits’ in which the station doled out cash prizes in return for accomplishing pre-set challenges, such as a photo in front of the stadium, getting their banner on the pre-game show on NBC and snapping a photo in front of the Indiana state sign.
The gang traveled on their journey in a shuttle labeled the Pigeon River Pub and Anthony’s total payout when he got back to Michigan was $183.75.
Madonna and Anthony have been estranged for years, due largely to his struggle with drug and alcohol addiction.
“I’m proud of my sister. But it’s been a burden, because I can’t be me; I have to be related to a celebrity. People have their ideas and expectations. My sister’s a multimillionaire, but she earned it. I have to give her credit for that,” Anthony said in an interview last year.
“But you’d think there’d be some more family loyalty, and that’s not the case. Just to communicate would be nice.”
It’s unclear whether Madonna was aware that her brother was at the Super Bowl or not, but sources tell RadarOnline.com the Material Girl‘s schedule is hectic and she was already on a plane out of Indiana immediately following her performance.
