Angelina Slams Madonna’s Illegal Adoption

January 8th, 2007 // 5 Comments

Move over Rosie and Donald. There’s a new feud in town.

Angelina Jolie has attacked Madonna for adopting a child ‘illegally’. She said the singer should never have visited an impoverished African country with the sole intention of choosing an infant. Her comments follow accusations that Madonna used her fame and money to speed the adoption of one-year- old David Banda late last year.

‘Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born,’ said Miss Jolie, who has adopted two Third World youngsters of her own. ‘It’s a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption.

‘Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.’

Ooh, I think I smell a dance-off in the works. Or maybe just bacon. I often confuse the two.

    Who doesn’t know by now that Madonna bought this black kid? African orphans are the new teeny-weeny doggies – I expect to see stars carrying them around in little pooch handbags any day now…

    yes but she also said – and quote:”I have been horrified by the attacks she’s been subjected to,” Jolie tells the French magazine Gala. “All that should count is the happiness of her little David.”

    what a hypocrite! she prefers to stay on the right side of the law yet she has no qualms about taking somebody else’s husband? and what authority does she have to comment on other people’s adoption?

    What mel said is correct. Why did you distort the story to make Angelina look bad? Shame on you. And shame on those who are so quick to judge.
