Mean Old Madge

Madonna’s ability to stay relevant in the media seems only to revolve around her controversies. When, on the heels of Angelina Jolie, Madonna announced her desire to adopt, people everywhere rolled their eyes. It seemed an obvious publicity stunt, but when the adoption process became fraught with problems, the world started taking notice.

All eyes were on Madonna in 2009 when she was finally allowed to adopt a daughter from Malawi. Her new daughter, Mercy James, has managed to stay out of the proverbial spotlight until now. According to Mercy’s Malawians relatives, Madonna has reneged on an agreement she made to allow them regular contact with Mercy.

Madonna now faces legal action for not complying with the agreement. Madonna has not allowed Mercy to have any contact with her biological family since her adoption.

Will the courts side with Madonna, a mega-powerful star, or with the Malawians relatives? Who do YOU side with?
