(Newser) – Apparently the Material Girl would rather have another child than a young lover. Madonna confirmed her split with Jesus Luz on Twitter, the Daily Mail reports, saying she is “glad” to be single. Some are speculating Madonna dumped the 22-year-old after Malawian officials raised their eyebrows. The singer’s attempted adoption of 4-year-old Mercy James has been fraught with controversy and is expected to be decided in a Malawi court Monday.
