On Wednesday Madonna filed an adoption application for two children to the Malawian justice system, a country where she had already adopted a boy in 2006 and a daughter in 2009, according to a source in the judicial system.
“The court is considering an application to determine whether Madonna may or may not adopt two children,” Mlenga Mvula, a spokesman for the Lilongwe court, told the source.
“The adoption procedure requires a court judgment,” he continued, refusing to give the identity of the children and the orphanage where they live.
According to local media, Madonna presented herself to the Lilongwe court on Wednesday with two young children to be heard by a judge.
The American singer arrived in Malawi aboard a private plane and is staying in a lodge outside the capital of Malawi, the media added.
In 2006 Madonna adopted a boy David Banda, then a daughter, Mercy James, in 2009.
Her regular stays in this poor little country of southern Africa have sometimes been the subject of controversy.
In 2013 in particular, then President Joyce Banda had accused her of behaving with the authorities in conquered territory, demanding an unjustified VIP treatment and boasting too much of her generosity towards Malawi.
Since the departure of Mrs. Banda in 2014, the relations of the star with the new president Peter Mutharika are better, the latter having affirmed that his government would be “always grateful for the passion of Madonna for the country”.
In 2006 Madonna created the foundation “Raising Malawi” which claims to have paid millions of dollars to finance orphanages and various institutions of protection of orphans in the country.
