Sacha Baron Cohen apologises to Madge over African adoption digApril 18th, 2009 - 1:47 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 18 (ANI): Sacha Baron Cohen has apologised to Madonna after mocking her bid to adopt an African baby in his new movie Bruno, according to sources.
The “Borat” star was said to have sent a bouquet of flowers to the Queen of Pop, who was reportedly upset following the gag.
“Sacha is always out to make great comedy - and if he upsets people along the way, so be it,” The Mirror quoted an insider as saying.
“But when word reached him that Madonna thought his sketch was insensitive, he sent her a bouquet of flowers to say, ‘No hard feelings’,” the insider added.
It was further alleged that Cohen’s apology to the singer was not unexpected since the two have been good friends.
The source added: “It’s hardly surprising Sacha is going out of his way to mend their rift.
“The pair go back years. Madge was such a big fan of his Ali G character she asked him to star in her video for Hey Mr DJ and they’ve been pals ever since.” (ANI)
