A court in Malawi recently gave the ok for Madonna to adopt 4-year-old twin girls, who will join her other children in shaking their heads and putting their palms on their faces whenever their mom posts some embarrassing shit on Instagram. But well, since no Madge adoption is complete without a layer of messiness covering it, here comes that layer of messiness.
Adam Mwale, the alleged birth father of the girls, tells the Mail on Sunday that he was told that a rich lady was going to foster his daughters and not adopt them permanently. Before the girls, Esther and Stella, became the newest stars of Madge’s Instagram page, they were living in an orphanage in Malawi. Adam’s wife died shortly after giving birth to the twins and when he asked the hospital for help, they suggested that the girls would be better off in an orphanage. So that’s where Adam took them. He says that he visited them often, and when he remarried two years later, he says he continued to visit them and they visited him during holiday times.
A court-appointed guardian told a really different story when in front of the judge. They painted Adam as a deadbeat dad. They said that after Adam’s first wife died, he abandoned the girls and ran off to marry a new piece. But Adam claims that what came out of that guardian’s mouth is a certified lie. He says he never abandoned his daughters.
Adam says that he only signed off on the adoption, because he was told that he’d see them again one day. He believes he was tricked and taken advantage of.
“I was told from the start that Esther and Stella were going to a rich woman’s home abroad, that she would give them a good education, then return them to me, to live with me and help all of my family. Now you are telling me the adoption is permanent. That cannot be true – I don’t want it to be true. I am their father and I will always be their father.
The orphanage boss told me it would be a wonderful chance for my little girls, and for their brother and sisters at home. I was told to agree with everything in court. I did not believe I would never see my girls again. I was standing with my brother-in-law who signed the consent forms with me, and we just continued to believe that I would always be the twins’ father and they would be coming home to me.”
If the luscious Dionne Warwick ballad Deja Vu is filling your head, then let me tell you that you have exquisite taste in music. But I’ll also tell you that it’s probably filling your head because this kind of situation has happened to Madge before. When she adopted her son David, his birth dad accused Madge of being a baby stealer who stole his son. (David’s birth dad says that they’re cool now.) And when she adopted her daughter Mercy, the girl’s family also accused her of tricking them. Mercy’s uncle even told Adam (through the Daily Mail) that he’d never see his daughters again if he let Madge adopt them.
I was going to say that Adam better watch it, because Madge can transform herself into smoke and slide under his door in the dead of night to suck the blood out of his neck veins, but I doubt she gives a hell about this. Besides, I’m sure that Madge will smooth everything over the way she did with David’s birth dad. The next time she goes to Malawi, she’ll take a happy picture with Adam and post it on Instagram to let us know that everything’s good now. Adam should prepare himself, because while taking that picture, Madge is only going to wear a “#1” pastie on her right nip and a “mom” pastie on her left nip.
