Madonna: Daughter Mercy Will Not Meet Man Who Says He’s Her Dad

Looks like there won’t be a father-daughter reunion between Madonna‘s adopted Malawian daughter, Mercy, and the man claiming to be her father.

James Kambewa
was pressuring Madonna for a meeting with Mercy, 4, but reports that the popstar is disputing his claims of paternity.

“The extended family members had no knowledge of a father. The village leadership had no knowledge of a father … the mother was raped and left,” Madonna’s spokeswoman said.

Mercy, who is Madonna’s second adopted Malawian child, was born in January 2006 to a 14-year-old mother who died shortly after giving birth.

Kambewa had initially vowed to fight the adoption but said earlier this month that he was now happy that Madonna was looking after Mercy.

    Good choice to keep Mercy away if her bio mom was 14 years old when she died. Tha mean’s she was 12 or 13 when the bio father raped (because that’s what it is when its a child) her…he’s 24 now. That makes him 20 or so…uggh. Disgusting pig should have no contact with any little girls.

    Good for you Madonna.

    He’s 26 now actually, so he was about 21-22 when he took advantage of a 13 year old girl. He has fled Malawi because he was under investigation. He should never be allowed to get near a child.
