Pop star Madonna has denied the recent rumors that she has applied to adopt two more children in Malawi.
The statement came after a Malawian government spokesperson told news outlets that the 58 year old singer had appeared in court and had “filed an application expressing interest” to adopt.
Madonna is currently in the African country, but said her visit was strictly for charity purposes.
“The rumors of an adoption process are untrue,” she revealed in a statement.
“I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home.”
Court spokesman Mlenga Mvula had told news agencies earlier on Wednesday the singer had appeared in High Court, applying to adopt two children. Madonna previously adopted two children from the African country: David Banda and Mercy James.
The star’s connection with Malawi dates back to 2006, when she established the Raising Malawi charity, with the goal of improving children’s lives.
Madonna also has two other children – Lourdes and Rocco – from her previous relationships.
