Pop queen Madonna is planning to build a family home in Malawi after the failure of her adoption bid, it has emerged.
Last week a judge turned down her bid to adopt four-year-old Mercy James because she hadn’t lived in the country for 18 months. The Material Girl has asked her architects to build home in the African country, as she believes adopted son David Banda would benefit from a connection to his birthplace.
“Madonna has a big, beautiful plot of land over there already. She’s planning to build a girl’s school in the Chinkhota village and those designs are well under way,” the ‘Sun’ quoted a source as saying.
“But she’s gone back to the designers and asked if they could accommodate a family home on the plot or on adjacent land,” the source added.
