Daily Mail claims Madonna wants to adopt two girls

Madonna is trying to adopt four-year-old twin sisters from Malawi, MailOnline can reveal.

The girls, called Stella and Esther, have lived together in an orphanage for two years.

The 58-year-old singer applied for custody of the girls at the High Court in the capital Lilongwe on Wednesday morning.

The mother-of-four could have to wait up to three weeks to find out if she has been successful.

Madonna yesterday denied she was in the African country to adopt any more children, and insisted she was only there to visit a children’s hospital and her charity.

But Lucy Bandazi, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare, told MailOnline all the paperwork have been submitted and the application was being carefully considered.

‘Madonna has lodged an application with the High Court to adopt two girls. They are aged four years old.

‘All the necessary paperwork is before the High Court and they will make the ultimate decision if the adoption can go ahead.’

After being spotted at the court, Madonna released a statement through US magazine People, trying to quash the adoption claims.

Madonna denies adoption ‘rumours’

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.

Madonna to adopt two more children from Malawi

Pop star Madonna has filed for the adoption of two more children from Malawi.

A government spokesman says the singer appeared before a High Court judge on Wednesday.

Spokesman Mlenga Mvula says it is now up to the court to decide whether to grant the adoption order. The singer will have to wait a week before hearing the decision on her application.

Madonna in 2008 adopted David Banda and a year later adopted Mercy James.

The pop star in 2006 founded the charity Raising Malawi to address the poverty and hardship endured by this southern African country’s orphans and vulnerable children.

Texas Radio Station Won’t Play Madonna, Calls For National Boycott

Madonna’s remarks at the Women’s March are proving to be controversial even after she clarified them. Texarkana radio station HITS 105 wasn’t buying it, saying that the singer is banned from the station, according to a Billboard report.

“Banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism,” Terry Thomas, the station’s general manager, said in a statement. “It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna.”
