Madonna’s plan to adopt African toddler under fire

London:

US pop diva Madonna is under fire in Britain for her plans to adopt an African toddler, with her toughest critics dismissing her as a selfish star who could do much more to ease world poverty.

Madonna, 48, who has a family home in London, left Malawi on a private plane on Friday after a judge granted her an 18-month interim order allowing her to take David Banda, the son of an illiterate farmer, out of the country.



Mother to 10-year-old Lourdes and Rocco, six, Madonna is not the first star to expand her family by adopting children from developing countries. United States actress Mia Farrow was the first in the 1970s, she has 14 children, including 10 adopted from foreign countries. United States actress Meg Ryan adopted a Chinese girl, while the Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, gave his two children a little Mongolian sister.

However, the adoptive parent who is perhaps best known is Angelina Jolie. She adopted Maddox, four, and in Ethiopia she became mother to Zahara, almost two, before giving birth to Shiloh, whose father is actor Brad Pitt.
