REP:MADONNA IS NOT ADOPTING GIRL FROM MALAWI

Pop star Madonna’s rep claims that the singer will not be adopting the little girl named Mercy:

A report that Madonna is adopting a three-year-old girl, Mercy James, from Malawi is not true, her rep tells Usmagazine.com.”Madonna has not made an attempt to adopt this baby earlier this year or now,” Liz Rosenberg tells Us.Rosenberg also confirmed to Us what she told CelebTV.com: “There is no truth to this rumor. It’s an old one – wasn’t true then or now. Madonna is starting her tour in a week.”

(Madonna’s rep initially denied reports she was adopting David Banda, 2, also from Malawi.)

Malawian adoption minister Penstone Kilembe had told Britain’s Sun: “Madonna’s representatives have been visiting the girl. The adoption is now advanced — all the government is waiting for is Madonna to forward the petition of adoption formalities.

“Then Mercy will be able to leave the country for a new life,” he added.

The Sun claimed the singer, 49, had been pursuing Mercy James for a year but stopped proceedings when her marriage to Guy Ritchie grew rocky.
