Madonna’s Adoption Got Rejected



Two days after Madonna’s lawyer said, “I am not sleeping sleepless nights over this. I don’t see any law in Malawi that can stop this adoption”, a Malawi judge denied Madonna’s application to adopt three-year old Chifundo “Mercy” James this morning. Us Magazine says:

The judge cited requirements that adoptive parents reside in the country for 18 to 24 months. Madonna, 50, can appeal against the order. She adopted David Banda, 3, in 2006 without meeting the residency requirements, which caused outrage by non-governmental groups that felt she was using her celebrity status to bend the law. Judge Esme Chombo had been expected to sign off on the adoption at Lilongwe High Court. “We support her adoption process,” Information Minister Patricia Kaliati said yesterday. “Madonna’s been good to us. She’s supporting over 25,000 orphans in this country, and she’s proved she can take care of David.”

Uh oh, this isn’t going to turn out well. Somebody just told Madonna no. This judge better watch his ass. Because, at this point, there’s a 75% chance he’s gonna wake up one morning with his house on fire and Madonna standing in the back of a jeep with a megaphone signaling her trained cyborg pumas to attack. “You insolent fools, stop him! He’s getting away!”
