Mercy's Father Speaks Out as Madonna's Appeal Begins

Madonna attended Kabbalah services on Saturday in NYC with Jesus Luz and her children ahead of her adoption appeal beginning today in Malawi. Unfortunately, more drama surrounds the proceedings — the man claiming to be Mercy's father filmed a three-part-interview with The Early Show in which he talks about wanting to take care of Mercy himself. He has never met Mercy, and Madonna's rep says no one's sure if he's actually her dad. Sounds like things are getting complicated for Madonna, but she's not one to shy away from a fight.

I doubt she would approve that trash her brother wrote

Really? she approved he brothers biography you know.

Her brother is a slezebag and the nanny who was let go by Madonna says the opposite of this chef who could be lying just to get a fat pay check from a tabloid. I have seen Mommy Dearest. I highly doubt these kids would hide what they feel...Guy Ritchie is their father and they look just as happy with him as Madonna. The boys that is.

Love Angelina, ever read mommy dearest?...it wouldnt necessarily "show"

if you read her brothers book, and read interviews with former friends, the above is one of a million reports on how she is with her kids.

Madonna's former chef, Eric Ienco, is telling tales about Madge's parenting -- or lack thereof. Ienco says: "She gets up and has a coffee, then she does two hours of yoga. Then there's two hours of Pilates and exercise. That's six days a week. After that, she deals with her e-mail, her calls and the rest of her business. And after that, she spends maybe half an hour with the kids. If Lourdes comes in and says, 'I want to see Mom,' she is told, 'She's doing yoga' - and Lourdes knows she can't disturb Mom. Madonna puts herself before her kids."

No I don't know her but her children are clean, healthy, and by all accounts they look happy. Surely if she was a totally sh*t mother it would show.

I used to LOVE Madonna, but the last year or so I'm not feelin' it as much. I guess if this man is the baby's father, and for arguments sake he didn't know about her then yep absolutely he should be allowed to take and raise her. Even though he is poor and could not give the child all the things Madonna could, he is still her father. Either way it's sad there are so many unwanted and abandoned children out there...if I could I would take one or two and give them a good home.
LOVE-ANGELINA LOVE-ANGELINA 6 years
Well I never said he shouldn't raise the child if she is his but we have no clue if he is so hopefully some testing is done and if he isn't the father I think Madonna would make a good mother to her. I don't know what you have against Madonna but she has done a good job with her children. It shows.

biological parents should be given every right to raise their kid as long as they can provide...now, if a better opportunity arises, it's that parents choice...now, I don't know the conditions this kid may grow up in but every body's path is different and the father wants to be in the kids life so what can anybody say? I wouldn't want this odd bird raising my kid, period...for this, I'd prefer (dare I say it) Angelina lol
CaterpillarGirl CaterpillarGirl 6 years
No Love Angelina, because if this guy is her father he has the right to raise her, He didnt know about her till all this started happening. I believe that kids should be with thier bio parents if possible, and just because madonna wants another toy to play with and mold into a kabbalah robot doesnt mean she gets her way.

it's just insane to me that this guy who's claiming to be her father - he didn't want anything to do with mercy until the Madonna thing came up. he's never had contact with Mercy before and she's been living in the orphanage as though she had no parents. i think that the government should take THAT into consideration as well.
LOVE-ANGELINA LOVE-ANGELINA 6 years
Because growing up in orphanage is so much better right CaterpillarGirl. Like I have stated before if this man is the father and can provide for his daughter than I think he should absolutely have chance to raise her if he is suitable to be a father. Otherwise I don't see the point of letting the child languish in an orphanage. Madonna has done a great job with David and I am sure she would with Mercy. Also how irresponsible is The Early Show? This man night not even be the father and they are giving him an interview anyway. Anything to pull of ahead of The Today Show huh.

all this sounds crazy,if he's mercy's dad why doesn't he get her out of the orphanage?since he said that he wants to take care of her himself.if he thinks he has the means to do so,well he can go right ahead,they are still plenty of kids there that need to be in that orphanage and don't have the means or anything to do so.

I hope she doesnt get her talons on this child.

Not a big Madonna fan but I admire her devotion to Kabbalah. Read a few Kabbalah books and was amazed at what was offered. Remember, it's *not* a religion.
