Madonna received a ton of criticism for going to Africa to adopt David. It was not an easy task to say the least, and many argued she used her celeb status to bend the rules and bring the little guy home with her to London. Now Angelina, the mom who started the latest adoption trend, is attacking Madonna for the way she went about adopting David. Here's more:
'Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born,' said Miss Jolie, who has adopted two Third World youngsters of her own. 'It's a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal.'
Miss Jolie, 31, also made clear she was shocked by Madonna's decision to take David from the country where his father still lives. Despite her own harsh words, Miss Jolie said she still felt sorry for Madonna, 48, who has been harshly criticised since taking David back to London to live with her husband Guy Ritchie and her own children, Lourdes and Rocco.
Asked if the saga would put her off adopting more children of her own, Miss Jolie said: 'I have been horrified by the attacks she's been subjected to. All that should count is the happiness of her little David.'
Wow. We didn't see that coming. Madonna has defended herself in the past with this adoption so we are curious to know if she will react to Jolie's comments.
