(ABCNEWS.GO) — The Material Girl’s brother has a money problem.

In an interview last week with the local newspaper Michigan Messenger, Madonna‘s older brother Anthony Ciccone said he’s been homeless for more than a year and his super star sister isn’t helping him out.

“My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,” Ciccone said. He began living under a bridge in Traverse City, Mich., after losing his job at the family winery, Ciccone Vineyard.
