Madonna's Malawi adoption ruling pushed to Friday under storm of criticism

Posted on

The Associated Press is reporting that a Malawi court delayed until this Friday a ruling on Madonna’s attempt to adopt a second child from the African country. The decision came the same day as a press conference in the capital city, Lilongwe, by a group of non-governmental organizations accusing Madonna of using her wealth and influence to fast-track the adoption process; one official called her a “bully.” After her visit to the Malawian courtroom, the pop star visited the day care center built by her charity. She was accompanied by her 12-year-old daughter Lourdes, 8-year-old son Rocco, and 3-year-old Malawian son David, whose adoption Madonna finalized last year.
