The father of the little girl Madonna wants to adopt says the star’s wardrobe means she is not fit to be Mercy’s mum.
The singer, 50, put on bunny ears, a revealing minidress and thigh-high boots to attend New York’s biggest fashion night on Monday. She was accompanied by her on-off toyboy Jesus Luz, 22.
But Mercy James’ dad James Kambewa – who has never met his daughter – says he and many in his country of Malawi were deeply offended by the get-up.
James, 24, told a newspaper: “I cannot imagine how this woman can want to be the mother of my Mercy.”
“This can’t be a woman of 50. A teenage woman would feel ashamed in that gear.”
“A woman is supposed to be a role model for her daughters.”
“What morals can a woman of 50 have, who has no qualms in showing her delicate parts and displaying herself like that in front of her children?”
“I don’t want my daughter anywhere near such a moral-less person.”
Meanwhile, The Sun can reveal that Madonna will campaign to change the law if her bid to adopt is blocked because she is single.
She fears she may lose her appeal to take home Mercy, three, as her marriage to Guy Ritchie is over.
A source said yesterday: “If she fails on the grounds of her divorce she will be absolutely livid.
“Madonna has always been a tough independent woman and is now, more than ever, of the opinion that she doesn’t need a man for anything in her life.
“If she falls at the last hurdle because of her marital status, it will be hard to swallow. She is already talking about starting a campaign for single mums to be allowed to adopt the world over.
“She believes if you have love to offer, the fact you are divorced, widowed or unmarried should not be seen as a barrier.”
Another pal said director Guy, 40, feels “very guilty” that their split may derail the adoption.
The star’s appeal against a court refusal to let her adopt Mercy began on Monday. A decision is due in the next two weeks.
