Who is it that Madonna loves most when she says "I love you"? Ask her brother, Christopher Ciccone, author of the hyped-to-death memoir "Life With My Sister Madonna," and he'll tell you the supreme object of love in Madge's life is Madonna.

Ciccone says Madonna does love hubby Guy Richie, even if she has less ardor for him than for herself. Ciccone describes the couple as "passionately committed" to staying together — with help from Kabbalah, the New Age spiritual therapy supposedly inspired by the Jewish mystical tradition.

"I hope that it is Kabbalah's lesson that she is not the center of the universe," Ciccone writes in the book.

A rep says Madonna has not read the book but finds it "very upsetting" that her brother has cashed in on her name.
