Madonnas adoption hearing deferredApril 16th, 2008 - 5:33 pm ICT by admin
London, April 16 (ANI): The hearing for Madonnas legal adoption of Malawian toddler David Banda has been deferred.
The new date has been set for May 15, a month later than planned, reports the Sun.
The pop star was scheduled to appear in a Malawian court this month for a final hearing on whether she could adopt the child from the southern African country.
According to a court clerk, the case was tentatively scheduled for 22 to 25 April.
But now the 49-year-old singer would have to wait until the middle of next month before she can formally adopt the two-year-old.
Madonna began adoption proceedings in 2006 and the little tot has been living with the pop star and her film director husband Guy Ritchie in their London home since then. (ANI)
