Madonna Sets the Record Straight on New Adoption Rumors

Madonna has applied to a Malawian court to adopt two more children, after being criticised by the country's former president.

"The court will either grant the adoption order or might not", Mvula said.

Both of the singer's adopted kids, David Banda (left), now 11, and Mercy James, 10, were adopted from Malawi (right) What will happen next for Madonna with her application?

The singer has two other adopted children - David Banda, whom she adopted in 2008, and Mercy James, adopted a year later.

"I am in Malawi to check on the children's hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi, and then heading home", she said.

"The ... process requires the court to make a ruling on the adoption".

The legendary singer has previously adopted two children from the African nation.

Explaining her decision to adopt children from Malawi, Madonna told Harper's Bazaar in 2013: "I decided that I had an embarrassment of riches and that there were too many children in the world without parents or families to love them". Madonna is reportedly among the biggest individual donors to children's projects such as orphanages in Malawi.

The star also has two biological children, Lourdes and Rocco, from previous relationships with partners Carlos Leon and Guy Ritchie. Last September she lost a custody battle with her ex-husband, film director Guy Ritchie, over Rocco, 16, that ensured he will remain in the UK.

She was later spotted carrying on child, believed to be the one she wants to adopt, and one of her personal handlers was also carrying another child.

"This was an eye-opening experience". She was accused of being "uncouth" and wanting eternal gratitude from the country for adopting the David and Mercy, as reported by the site.
