"When you fall down the rabbit hole you want your friends to show up! @ingridmiami," Madonna wrote across a photo of the "Material Girl" singer and her longtime best friend Ingrid Casares — who the 64-year-old was rumored to have an affair with back in the '90s.

"U got this! And soon the world will be blown away! One hit at a time!" Casares wrote beneath the post, which she shared to her own Instagram Story.

The public announcement seemed to confirm Madonna was dealing with hardship behind the scenes of her well-documented life as a celebrity mother-of-six.

The "Like a Virgin" vocalist's apparent struggles come after a source spilled the pop star was suffering a "crisis of confidence" following incessant backlash from her appearance at the 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 5.

"Instead of focusing on what I said in my speech, which was about giving thanks for the fearlessness of artists like Sam [Smith] and Kim [Petras], many people chose to only talk about close-up photos of me taken with a long lens camera by a press photographer that would distort anyone’s face!!" Madonna's message read in part.

"Once again I am caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny that permeates the world we live in. A world that refuses to celebrate women past the age of 45 and feels the need to punish her if she continues to be strong willed, hard-working and adventurous. I have never apologized for any of the creative choices I have made nor the way that I look or dress and I’m not going to start," the legendary singer continued.
