Relief for Jolie as Ethiopian daughters birth mum doesnt want her backNovember 19th, 2007 - 11:53 am ICT by admin
London, Nov 19 (ANI): Angelina Jolie can breathe a sigh of relief, for the biological mother of her eldest daughter Zahara, has dismissed reports that she wants the little girl back.
The row started after Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, who the woman claiming to be Zahara’s biological mother, told America’s In Touch magazine this month she wanted her daughter to come home to regain her identity.
“I want my daughter to come home to see where she is from. Her grandmother and I both tried very hard to raise her, and I want her to come home to regain her identity,” she said at the time.
However, Ms Lebiso has now insisted that she never made such comments, and that she is happy that Jolie and her beau Brad Pitt are raising Zahara.
She said that her comments were misinterpreted by “so-called journalists”.
“I have never disputed the adoption. It was something I never said,” The Sun quoted her, as saying.
“I think my daughter is a very fortunate human being to be adopted by a world-famous lady. I wish them all the success they both deserve.”
The Ethiopian adoption agency, which conducted Angelina Jolies adoption in 2006, also insisted that the adoption was legal and irrevocable. (ANI)
