An insider told OK! that the 15-year-old took off during Madge’s Rebel Heart tour because of very bizarre and embarrassing behavior she’s subjected him to in front of her staff!

According to the source, the 57-year-old singer has humiliated Rocco on each tour stop and is known to “make him dress up in tight, revealing outfits worn by her male dancers and then parade him around backstage, laughing as the older guys catcall him.”

And while her boundary-challenged actions have driven her son away, so has her notorious harsh rules. “She’s a disciplinarian who tries to dictate his bedtime, his diet and who his friends are,” the source said.
