Madonna Jets To Malawi, Applies To Adopt Two More Children

Singer Madonna is clearing up rumors that she is in the process of adopting more children.

Mlenga Mvula, spokesman for Lilongwe high court, told the Agence France-Presse news agency: "The court is looking at the application now to determine whether Madonna can adopt these two children".

In recent months, Madonna has been involved in a custody battle with ex-husband Guy Ritchie over her 16-year-old son, Rocco.

"I applied to an global adoption agency and went through all the bureaucracy, testing, and waiting that everyone else goes through when they adopt".

"This was an eye-opening experience", she added. She also founded her own charity, Raising Malawi, in 2006.

She initially planned to build a $15m (£12m) girls' academy, but later changed strategy, and used the money to fund a number of schools. She was photographed visiting the site, at Queen Elizabeth hospital, last July.

But Banda was ousted from officer in elections the following year and the new president, Peter Mutharika, moved to fix relations - saying: "My government has always been grateful for the passion Madonna has for this country".
