Madonna Clarifies Adoption Rumors: They 'Are Untrue'

Reports surfaced today that Madonna was in Malawi applying to adopt two children, but now the superstar is disputing those reports.

“I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home,” the 58-year-old superstar told Just Jared in a statement. “The rumors of an adoption process are untrue.”

Malawi government spokesman Mlenga Mvula had apparently confirmed the reports that Madonna was in front of a judge and awaiting permission, but it appears as if this is not the case.

Madonna has four children: Lourdes Leon, 20, Rocco Ritchie, 16, David Banda, 11, and Mercy James, 11.

People was first to report the news.
