Guy Ritchie Gives Public Support To Former Wife Madonna

Guy Ritchie has spoken out in defense of former wife Madonna. The singer was denied the right to adopt Mercy James, 4, of Malawi earlier this week by Judge Esmie Chondo.
In a statement Ritchie said that Madonna was a loving mother who cares about her children deeply. She also cares about children who need additional help and support.

The Telegraph reports:

“I fully supported Madonna in her decision to apply for this adoption, and I am saddened that her application has been rejected. She is motivated only by being a caring parent who seeks to share some of the advantages and opportunities that her life has given her. This time it did not work out, but there will be other opportunities and I wish her well in them. She is a great mum.”

The adoption laws in Malawi require that prospective parents reside in the nation for 18-24 months before an adoption can be granted. That rule was waived in the case of Madonna’s son David Banda, 3.

The judge also stated that if he allowed Madonna to adopt the child Mercy it could place other children at risk by opening the door for child traffickers.

Madonna is said to be appealing the court’s decision.
