Madonna’s adoption isn’t going so great

The Human Rights Consultative Committee is hoping to halt Madonna’s adoption of a 13-month old baby boy because they want to make sure Malawi laws aren’t bent for her. The group is currently applying for the court to recognize them as a sufficiently interested party so they can file an injunction later in the week to block the adoption.

“The rich shouldn’t get preferential treatment. I am fine with the idea of the adoption but I want people to go through the system,” said Emmie Chanika, director of the Civil Liberties Committee.

And even though she reportedly left Malawi with the child on Friday, turns out there were some legal problems getting his passport setup and he had to stay behind, only finally being able to leave today with one of her bodyguards and her personal assistant. So basically Madonna abandoned the child her very first day of being an adoptive mother. At this rate the kid might as well have been adopted by a fire hydrant. It might not be as rich but at least it’ll love him more.
