However, a Malawi High Court spokesman confirmed today (Feb. 7) that Madge has just been granted permission to adopt.
AFTER denying rumours that she has applied to adopt two more children from Malawi, it emerged today that the Like A Virgin singer has been given the go-ahead to adopt twin girls.
It has also been reported that Madonna was at the court for the verdict and appeared happy with the outcome.
The 58-year-old singer - who has previously been embroiled in controversy in Malawi - last visited the hospital in July, taking her two adopted Malawian children with her.
Madonna's ties to Malawi go back to 2006, when she adopted David Banda in 2006 and Mercy James in 2009.
She has a pair of biological children as well in 20-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon and 15-year-old son Rocco Ritchie.
She had also set up children's charity Raising Malawi in 2006. Her attempt to adopt David caused an worldwide controversy, with human-rights groups accusing the singer of using her fame and influence to fast-track her legal parentage. Madonna the "Queen of Pop", poses with her Malawian son David Banda in Mphandula 19 April 2007 Madonna urged Malawian youths to work hard to realise their potential.
Mlenga added that Madonna was smiling when the ruling came through. The children are the newest addition to Madonna's growing family.
She marked the charities 10-year anniversary by taking David and Mercy to visit the orphanages where they lived prior to being adopted.
The Grammy victor is also tied to the country through the establishment of her non-profit Raising Malawi in 2006, which provides health and education programs for girls. "I think if everybody went there, they'd want to bring one of those children home with them and give them a better life".
But Banda was ousted in 2014 elections and the new president, Peter Mutharika, moved to fix relations.
Representatives for Madonna could not be reached for comment.
