For the last 18 months, Madonna's brother Anthony Ciccone has been homeless, living on the streets of Traverse City, Mich., and he's furious with his superstar sister for not helping out.

Ciccone told The Daily Mail that even though he and Madonna have never gotten along, he expects her to lend a hand.

"We hated each other -- sibling rivalry, I imagine. She was a bitch, just like she is now. She remains true to form. You have to give her credit for consistency."

Ciccone fell on hard times after he lost his job at his father's wine-making business, and says his family seeing him as "a non-person, an embarrassment," adding that if he froze to death they wouldn't know or care.

That's not entirely true, as it seems Madonna has reached out to her brother and has repeatedly offered to pay for him to go to rehab, and according to The Daily Mail, his father Tony has also offered to give him his job back if he gets treatment.

Ciccone has refused the notion of going to rehab, telling the paper he just needs a job. While opening up a bottle of cheap fortified wine, he said, "My family seem to think rehab is some kind of magic panacea for life's ills."
