Pop star Madonna has denied “rumours” she has applied to adopt two more children in Malawi.
It comes after a Malawian government spokesperson told news outlets the 58-year-old singer had appeared in court and had “filed an application expressing interest” to adopt.
Madonna is currently in the African country, but said her visit was strictly for charity purposes.
“The rumours of an adoption process are untrue,” she said in a statement.
“I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home.”
Court spokesman Mlenga Mvula had told news agencies earlier on Wednesday the singer had appeared in High Court, applying to adopt two children.
“As a court, we adjourned the matter for a ruling (in the next two weeks). The court will either grant the adoption order or might not,” he said.
