Madonna's affairs may scuttle Malawi adoption



Tbd-madonna032509 We haven't kept up with ol' Madonna recently, mostly because we don't meddle in the love lives of our own grandmothers, but word is that Malawi's bureaucrats may be coming to their senses and blocking her plans to adopt a second child from the country.

Madge has been wanting to adopt a 3-year-old girl named Mercy James, which we've mentioned before, but now her flings with 22-year-old Jesus Luz and some baseball guy named Alex Rodriguez are raising big questions, the New York Daily News reports.

"Our official policy is that we do not encourage our children to be sent into broken homes," an official from Malawi's Ministry of Women and Child Welfare Development said, pointing out her divorce from Guy Ritchie. "(Madonna's) relationships may negatively affect the adoption of Mercy. The news she is linked to another woman's husband and a young man less than half her age makes us question her morals."

Wait, after sensationalizing every aspect of her life for the last 25 years, this stuff is what they say makes them question her morals? That's like saying you question whether the stove is hot because you just now saw it boil water.
