Madges fling with Jesus Luz, hookup with A-Rod may doom her adoption plansMarch 24th, 2009 - 1:40 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Mar 24 (ANI): Queen of pop Madonnas plans of adopting another child from Africa may have been foiled by her having a fling with 22-year-old Brazilian model Jesus Luz and by her hook-up with baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
Madge, 50, who wants to adopt 3-year-old Mercy James, has come under the scrutiny of Malawi’’s adoption officials, and they have very strict rules when it comes to adopting.
Our official policy is that we do not encourage our children to be sent into broken homes, the New York Daily News quoted a senior official from Malawi’’s Ministry of Women and Child Welfare Development, as saying.
[Madonna''s] relationships may negatively affect the adoption of Mercy.
The news she is linked to another woman’’s husband and a young man less than half her age makes us question her morals, the official said.
When Madge was seen flaunting her relationship with Luz in a recent racy W Magazine spread it did not sit well with the officials, and Simon Chisale, Malawi’’s child welfare chief, said morality plays a big part in the adoption process.
We do not only look at the material issues, but also the moral standing of prospective adoptive parents, because we do not want our children’’s morals to be corrupted, Chisale said.
We do not apply the law retroactively, he added. (ANI)
