Madonna New York, April 15 (DPA) Madonna is landing on her feet after her breakup from British husband Guy Ritchie. The pop diva has bought a Manhattan mansion with 13 bedrooms for $40 million, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
The paper noted that despite the high price tag, the 26-room mansion on the Upper East Side still shook from the nearby subway trains.

However, Madonna evidently overlooked this inconvenience in favour of having such rare New York amenities as a two-car garage, a 3,000-square-metre garden, nine fireplaces, an elevator, a wine cellar with a grotto, 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.

Madonna, 50, will not be moving in any time soon. The report says she plans extensive renovations for her family which includes Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David Banda, 3. She is also trying to adopt a second baby from Malawi, but a court there ruled earlier this

month against her adoption bid.
