David Banda Has A Brother From Another Mother

David Banda Has A Brother From Another Mother

Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie’s 2-year-old adopted son, David, became a big brother when his birth father, Yohane, and his now wife, Flora, welcomed a new son on July 20.

In Touch has the exclusive pictures, which can be seen below.

“It’s too early to say if he looks like David,” says Yohane, who wants the two brothers to meet.

“I’m confident they will,” he reveals. “It’s my duty as their father to make sure they know about each other and respect and help each other.”

Yohane hasn’t named his new son yet. But talk about milking it!

I’m surprised that he didn’t tell Madonna that he demands that David meet his 1/2 brother… Since David is being raised by his nanny…

This is just like Michael Lohan… another 1/2 sibling.. who wants to meet his siblings.. Why not ?? Since Madonna is having so much
to do with the tour , her kids and now this …wow..

You couldn’t take care of David now you decide to have another child? Will you be able to take care of this one? If you could afford a child why not get David back?

Because David’s adoption is final, that’s why not.

hope madonna is gonna help them

I feel sorry for David, having a father who gave him up then had another child and then having to put up with Madonna as a mother.

After all this time, can’t people get the facts straight. Madonna offered to help David’s father raise him. He refused. He refused. Why? Because he had already moved to another village and began a relationship with another women who was pregnant with his child. They have since married and this latest child is his second with his new wife. Madonna did a good thing and the press got involved and now the father wants to be involved with whatever. Blah Blah Blah

That guy looks like Seal. Feh – don’t call me racist – he really does.

This should make for interesting tabloid fodder, and hey, it is something to talk about besides what has gone wrong with Madonna’s cheekbones.

What the hell is that comment about ‘milking it’. They are poor people not rich spoilt celebs. Leave them alone and pick on people who get praised for going shopping, eating and tanning. For goodness sake what an upside down world. If, this guy is milking it good luck to him it’s not as if he will go out and buy a designer suit, the money will go towards basic stuff.

WTF is with In Touch? Do they have an African branch or something?

First, they searched for Zahara’s alleged biological mother; now, they’re keeping tabs on David’s biological father?

They have a hard-on for African international adoptions, don’t they?

In Touch Weekly is the DEVIL!

It was his responsibility as a father to care for his first son. what, he’s better equipped now to care for this one financially? Is he going to sell this one to?

What better way to get a better life for his new family ..Than to get David
involved in all this..When Madonna adopted David … Did he know all this time that David would have half a sibling..What a con this is….
What is he going to do..Does that mean that all adoptions the kids
that are adopted have to meet their real siblings too..

so he threw out one child, then had 2 more. disgusting.

It seems very sleezy to do this. A special trip was made to Malawi to take photos of Madonna’s son’s half brother? Wow….that’s about as low as tabloid trash can go. Madonna and her family don’t have to have anything to do whatsoever with this family. I’ve never heard of anything so grasping and greedy to drum up ratings…hopefully it will fall flat.

I totally agree with #17

I’m waiting for Liz Rosenberg to make some sort of stupid statement abut this.

BTW, I love that Madge had the power to kill that nanny tell-all from last year but, miraculously, her brother easily got something published. VERY fishy that her powers of litigation dried up with something so “juicy”.

Read: she had a hand in it.

The empress has new clothes.

He’s is a irresponsible man. He gave his son to Madonna and then he is father of another one? If his relationship fails again, will he give to adoption his another child too?

David is a luck baby who found someone who really cares about him as Madonna.

Wasn’t David in an orphanage because his mother had died of AIDS and the father was currently dying of AIDS? He wanted nothing to do with David because he said he had no money and gave him away for someone else to raise him.
First of all – if you have full blown AIDS, why do you keep infecting others and having more children that will probably be infected or will grow up without parents? Does he think that if he keeps making children, Madonna is going to adopt the entire family and put them up in her guest house?
Secondly – now he wants something to do with David because, as he said in an interview that he was soooooooo happy because a very rich lady adopted David and now he could go to England to visit him..
Sorry, but I’m so sick of people like David’s father: filthy, irresponsible and so hungry for money/fame, they will do anything and everything to get it, even if it means whoring out children for money.
Madonna obviously cares about David. Hopefully David will have a good life with her and never have to deal with the garbage that is his father.

I hope this puts paid to comments from those who’ve continued to insist that Madonna somehow conned this ‘loving father’ out of his child. The man remarried within months of giving David up for adoption and this is the second child he has fathered with his new wife. He has managed to find the money to support a new family, yet claimed time and time again that he placed David in an orphanage because he could not afford to care for him. Heaven only knows what this tabloid is hoping to achieve by continuing to approach this man for stories. Just last month they asked him to comment about Madonna’s alleged marital woes and even asked if, in the event of a divorce, he wanted his son returned. Unfortunately for them, the answer was definitely not!!!

“BTW, I love that Madge had the power to kill that nanny tell-all from last year but, miraculously, her brother easily got something published. VERY fishy that her powers of litigation dried up with something so “juicy”.

Um, she likely had a confidentiality agreement with the nanny, but didn’t have one with her brother, her own flesh and blood. She likely never expected such a betrayal.

David also has a sister from another mister

who cares?

I bet Carlos Leon is impregnating some chick right now for his shot at fame.

The story as originally posted was that David’s mother died – the father could not take care of the child and work at the same time – he could not afford child care. David was put in orpanage on a temporary basis – he thought – until such times as his life circumstance improved – job – new wife to take care of child etc. During this time is when Madonna became involved and thought David had been abandoned – but he hadn’t – his father still visited him on occasion though extremely infrequently due to job, job seeking, distance and finances. After Madonna took David his father was initially very confused when he found out it was permanent and to another country – he thought David was being taken to be educated and eventually return to village to help his family and village. If David had still been in orphanage when his father remarried he probably would now be back with his dad. Remember there is a language barrier here and uneducate people who are not sure what is really going on. That’s why the dad still thinks that in someway his family still has a claim of on David – like expecting him to meet his new half siblings etc.
