Madonna's daughter Mercy won't be meeting man claiming to be father




Madonna's adopted daughter Mercy, the 4-year-old Malawian orphan, won't be meeting the 26-year-old man claiming to be her father, the New York Daily News says. That probably has something to do with the circumstances surrounding the death of Mercy's 14-year-old mom shortly after childbirth.

"The extended family members had no knowledge of a father. The village leadership had no knowledge of a father ... the mother was raped and left," Madge rep Barbara Charone told South Africa's Sunday Times about James Kambewa, who wanted to meet Mercy. Indeed, that would prevent us from sending a Father's Day card.

Kambewa is a waiter in the city of Durban, but had told the same paper he was glad Madonna was taking care of the kid. Considering the back story, we'd have to be suspect of his motives even if his claim turns out to be true.
