Madonna has denied reports that she is seeking to adopt two more children from Malawi.
Various publications reported on Wednesday (January 25) that the singer appeared before a judge in the African country, accompanied by two unidentified children that she was looking to adopt.
Mlenga Mvula, a spokesman for the local Lilongwe high court, told the Agence France-Presse news agency: 'The court is looking at the application now to determine whether Madonna can adopt these two children.'
However, Madonna has dismissed these claims as 'rumours', with her publicist telling The Guardian: 'I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with [her charity] Raising Malawi, and then heading home. The rumours of an adoption process are untrue.'
